Local singers part of Rock Choir success

Posted onPosted on 21st Dec

Singers from Newark and Southwell are part of the national Rock Choir that is doing well in the single charts this week with their new and emotional version of Keeping The Dream Alive.

They went straight to number one in the iTunes UK Download chart, Best Sellers chart on Amazon Music and also entered at Number 3 in Global Radio’s Big Top 40 Chart.

Their single-release to raise awareness for The Mental Health Foundation has now picked up a new momentum as they announce plans to help the whole country combat loneliness this Christmas by broadcasting a live and festive Rock Choir singing event from their YouTube channel on Christmas Day morning.

4,550 Rock Choir members feature on the single, including members from Grantham, Lincoln, Melton Mowbray, West Bridgford, Southwell and Newark, led by choir leader Katherine Tye. Each contributed their voice during lockdown whilst many of them were shielding or at high-risk.

Countless front-line workers, emergency services, NHS, Carers, Teachers and other Members who have done a vital job throughout the pandemic were featured on the single. Their voices, along with an inspirational solo from Rock Choir creator Caroline Redman Lusher (pictured) express the hope and dreams of never giving up and keeping their own dreams alive during the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. All profits for the single will go to the Mental Health Foundation.
