Young Voices at the O2

30th January 2019
It was an absolute delight to accompany Mr Rogers and the St Mary’s choir to the O2 in London. The children were so beautifully behaved and it was a fantastic event to be part of with 8,500 children in the arena.
 
The children rehearsed in the afternoon and we were accompanied by Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet. Sharlene Hector, who is the lead vocalist of Basement Jaxx and sings regularly at Ronnie Scotts in London, also sang with us .
 
Beau Dermott from Britain’s Got Talent was also there.  In 2016, Beau, dubbed the girl with the big voice and big heart, signed a major record deal with Decca Records. Beau shot to fame when her electrifying audition on BGT earned her the Golden Buzzer from Judge Amanda Holden, taking her straight into the live finals. Beau sang ‘Defying Gravity’ and inspired the children with her stories about being part of Young Voices when she was a child. The children sang their hearts out and everyone at St. Mary's is very proud of their achievements.
