We are excited to announce that The Games Maker Choir have joined 11 other “Choirs With Purpose” – launching an inspiring single and an album for charity, led by Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus.

All the profits will be divided equally between the choirs involved, or their nominated charities.

The Choir previously released a single “I Wish For You The World” with Alistair Griffin in December 2012, following the great success of the volunteer Games Makers at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
