Youngsters to join thousands of children in Wembley choir
PUPILS from four Buckinghamshire primary schools will join thousands of others from across the UK to sing at Wembley Arena to raise awareness of the plight of children in care.
Around 10,000 schoolchildren will join Britain’s Got Talent child stars Bars and Melody to headline the Voice in a Million show for two nights on March 2 and March 3.
Also appearing are Simon Cowell’s other finalists Calum Scott, from this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, and Charli Beard, from this year’s X Factor.
Pupils from Chalfont St Giles Junior School, Chalfont St Peter CofE Academy, Ley Hill Primary School and Holtspur School will unite in song to raise awareness and give a voice to millions of youngsters who do not have a family.
A choir of 5,000 children will be taking to the stage each night to spread the important message.
Also appearing at this year’s show is the Destiny Africa Children’s Choir, flying in from Uganda to lead the choir in the theme tune for Save the Children/ Children United initiative.
The Voice in a Million concerts were founded in 2009 by husband and wife Robert and Jo Garofalo who chose to adopt a son and later decided to create the show which would highlight the plight of children around the world in care.
Jo Garofalo said: “What started out as a small school show for a few schoolchildren to perform in front of their friends and family has turned into a mammoth annual event. Voice in a Million has become a children’s concert like no other.”
