Record Breaking Gospel Singing

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to sing with London Community Gospel Choir as part of their 30th Anniversary celebrations and World Record Breaking largest Gospel choir attempt.
I've written a little bit previously about joining an amazing gospel choir when I wrote about about being on The X Factor with them. I really enjoy the weekly rehearsals and getting to know lots of people who love singing.

We left Manchester very early on a Sunday morning after holding a big summer concert on the Saturday. There were rather a lot of tired faces as we set out at 6.30am. After arriving at The Southbank Centre and changing into our uniforms we went straight on for a short performance in one of the bar areas.
The afternoon was filled with rehearsals for the evening concert and  grabbing a quick bite to eat at The Good Food Festival also happening at The Southbank Centre.


The concert was amazing! We were seated in the choir stalls directly at the back of  the stage and got to sing behind amazing gospel singers such as Jocelyn Brown, all of London Community Gospel Choir and Jahmene Douglas who we'd already sung with on The X Factor.

We were also part of a Guinness World Record Challenge for the largest ever  gospel choir and are now all record breakers!

This is the song we sang with London Community Gospel Choir. I'm on the front row and I messed up the moves, so annoyed with myself but it sounds amazing!
