Rock choirs’ world record

Hertfordshire Life - - COUNTY LIFE -

Rock Choirs from across Herts took part in what is be­lieved to be the world’s largest singing ‘flash mob’.

Singers, in­clud­ing 500 from the Hemel Hemp­stead, Berkham­sted and Welwyn GC groups, were at a Proms in the Park con­cert to sup­port Rock Choir founder Caro­line Red­man Lusher and her on-stage 80-strong choir open the event (right).

The mem­bers were part of a 10,000-strong group ‘hid­den’ in the au­di­ence, who pulled off outer lay­ers to re­veal Rock Choir t-shirts and sur­prise the au­di­ence, num­ber­ing an­other 30,000, and BBC view­ers and ra­dio lis­ten­ers for the first num­ber, Danc­ing in the Street.

Welwyn GC Rock Choir leader Christina Clark said, ‘Ev­ery­one came to­gether and per­formed per­fectly in what was an his­toric and high-pro­file event cre­ated by the BBC. Some of my mem­bers haven’t been singing in Rock Choir for long but had the time of their lives. It’s left all of us on a huge high.’
