I have exciting news for you, were very priveleged to have been asked to send some ladies to go and sing our Jubilee single ‘Sing’ at the Classic Brit Awards next week with Gary Barlow, Gareth Malone and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber! Obviously our girls are very excited! But thats not all……. this will be a new version of ‘Sing’ and there have been new soloists added, and I am delighted to tell you that we are sending not one, not two, but THREE soloists for this!! How exciting! These lovely ladies are Elizabeth Castle-Simpson, Lisa Whitnall and Kitty Meeks, we are very proud of them and wish them, and the other ladies involved lots of love and luck for the performance. Lisa and Kitty went down to London earlier this week to record the new parts for the album, here is what Lisa had to say about the day:
Well, what an absolutely fantastic day Kitty and I have had! Firstly we were collected at the train station by a taxi to take us to the studio. We then learned that Elliot Kennedy may be a little late due to traffic so were gossiping away, having met Charlotte from Salisbury when Gareth Malone walked in! We were not expecting him at all and it took all our efforts (especially Kitty’s!) to remain composed and behave like we were in complete control. Obviously jumping up and down like maniacs when he left the room (sorry Charlotte for our behaviour!) Once Faye from Warminster, and Emma and Nicky from Chivenor arrived, after some more nattering, we went into the studio to warm up with Gareth until Elliot arrived. We then learned that we were not only to re-record parts of Sing for the new album but also to add to Stronger Together. And there began 4 hours of as much singing as we could fit in, with some very high notes! But we rose to the occasion and I have to say I loved singing with these ladies. What better way to spend a day??? Lovely ladies from the other choirs, beautiful voices and can’t wait to meet up with them all next week at the Classical Brit Awards along with Gareth Malone, Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber!!!!!!!
