Another very special guest announcement
We have more 10th Anniversary Concert news!
We are delighted to announce singer songwriter Alistair Griffin will be joining us as part of our 10th Anniversary Concert at St Johns Hyde Park, London on the 8th October 2022.
Alistair Griffin, the singer songwriter from the North East has a reputation for writing songs for the nations biggest moments. He first came to prominence on BBC show Fame Academy with a top 20 album and hit single with Bee Gee Robin Gibb. He emerged again with a new album Albion Sky shortly after his song ‘Just Drive’ entered the Top 40 after being used by the BBC to close their coverage of an exciting F1 season.
Since then his songs have been used to montage all the great British sporting events including Wimbledon, the Olympics, FA Cup and British Open golf to name a few. When the Tour de France came to Yorkshire in 2014, it was Alistair’s song “The Road” that was the official soundtrack, a duet with Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud.
His cover of “Only You” was streamed to billions round the globe when once again the BBC picked Alistair’s take on the Yazzou classic to montage the 2018 Royal Wedding.
He tours regularly through the UK with his live shows gaining a reputation for their raw acoustic quality and pure vocals.
Alistair has been part of our journey almost from day one, after he wrote the song “I Wish For You The World” and recorded it with the choir as a contender in the 2012 Christmas Charts. It was the choir’s first real taste of being in the post Olympics media spotlight.
The choir has performed with Alistair at Wembley and supported his Christmas Concerts; and “Wish” is a constant in the choir’s repertoire, including a new arrangement during lockdown.
We’re delighted he’ll be joining us to celebrate on such a special occasion.
More news including ticket links coming soon.
