A North Somerset school choir enjoyed a ‘memorable’ day singing in front of more than 14,000 people at a national concert in Birmingham.
The Spotlight Sparklers choir from Yatton Junior School, which consists of 27 pupils in years four, five and six, travelled to the city’s Genting Arena to take part in their third Young Voices concert on Friday.
They performed alongside 6,000 other primary school children and were joined by professional soprano singer Laura Wright, who sang for the England rugby team during the last Rugby World Cup.
Choir leader Alison Francis-Black said: “Young Voices is an international charity which organises the biggest children’s choir concerts in the world.
“We received the music last September and learned all the dance moves and songs in time for the January concert.
