#100VoicesUnited receive standing ovation in ITV’s New Year’s Eve Big Bash
It has been a magical year for #100Voices United, a youth choir made up from schools and the fantastic Ukrainian Children’s Choir. After months of rehearsing they travelled down to Wembley Arena to record a performance for the ITV New Year’s Eve Big Bash show, hosted by Jason Manford and a star-studded cast including Take That and Busted. The 8000 strong audience were mesmerised by a choir that sang in harmony, united and resolute. The response, a standing ovation.
#100VoiceUnited are a collaborative youth choir made up of children from 24 schools from across the city region, along with the Ukrainian Children’s Choir and led by Resonate, Liverpool’s Music Hub. After a rollercoaster of a year of events including performing for the King and Queen in April, a Eurovision tour of the city in May, calling in at Strawberry Field, Liverpool Hope University and topped by a performance in front of a captivated audience at the EuroVillage.
A trip to London for this TV show seems like a fitting end to what has been a truly extraordinary year.
Jonathan Dickson, Head of Service said “The ITV performance represents the very best of our region, it will remind you of the collective power young voices have to make your heart swell, it will fill you with optimism, joy and, once again, remind us of the importance of music in schools”
The show is being broadcast on New Year’s Eve 6-8pm ITV.
