This January, a group of children travelled the long journey to Sheffield arena to sing their hearts out at Young Voices. They started practising all the songs which were accompanied by different dance moves, that fit each tune. They did regular practises at least once a week so that they knew every song and all the dance moves. Wednesday 9th January was the day and the children were ready! They had to have two pack lunches one for their lunch and one for tea. They weren’t allowed fizzy drinks and lots of sweets because they could possibly throw up! When they arrived outside, they had to wait a little longer because they got there early. When they got in, they found their seats and got straight into munching on their lunch and going for toilet breaks.
While they were practising all the special guests were introduced. Unfortunately, Hugh Jackman couldn’t attend the concert! After the children had eaten everything in their bags the parents started to flood in. Once they all found their seats the lights went down and the person who organised the concert appeared on the stage and introduced all the band members and the school, but not every school because there were to many. At the end the same lady from the beginning mentioned that the parents had raised over 98 thousand pounds and said a massive thank you!
