Photos: Bells Farm take part in Young Voices

At lunch time on Friday, Bells Farm choir and Year 5, left school to perform in the Young Voices Choir at Resort World (formally the Genting Arena), in Birmingham. Excitedly, everyone had a ”sing song” on the coach before arriving. After being escorted to the arena, the children were given their special YV t-shirts, torches and wristbands, before finding their seats.

Before long, the rehearsals began which were great fun as we also got to see Tony Hadley (from Spandau Ballet), Sharlene Hector (from Basement Jaxx) , Beau Dermot (golden buzzer finalist of BGT) and the dance group Urban Strides perform too. After watching his Urban Strides dance moves on DVD over the last few months, the children were thrilled to see Andy live on stage too!

Afterwards, we had a break to eat, drink and visit the toilets before getting back to our places! As people arrived, we waved and shouted as loud as we could, to try and show our families where we were. It was very noisy and everyone was buzzing with anticipation, waiting to begin performing!

The line up of songs included, Thank you for the days, Moana Mashup, Fight Song, A Little Can Change Our World, Any Dream Will Do, American Folk Odyssey, It’s a Swing Thing, You Gotta Be, We Are The World, Viva La Vida, Tonight Belongs To Us, Pop Medley and The Greatest Showman Medley. The children were privileged to be backing singers to famous stars and the sound was incredible, especially when the singing was split into different parts. In addition, the coloured, themed lighting made it a fantastic spectacle.

We were told there were 6,639 children present which made it officially the largest school choir in the WORLD! It was truly an amazing experience for everyone. Needless to say, the children were all great representatives of Bells Farm with their brilliant behaviour. Mrs Parry, Miss Procter, Mrs Croft and Ms Dainter were very proud of them all.
