Rock choirs’ world record
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.’
