Budding singers from a Seven Kings school joined a choir of 7,000 for a spectacular concert at the O2 Arena in Greenwich on Monday (28).
Year five and six pupils from Farnham Green Primary School, in Royal Close, swapped their choir room for the huge venue and an audience of thousands as part of the Young Voices project.
They sang a pop medley, rock and even some disco and were led by 11-year-old Britain’s Got Talent star singer Connie Talbot.
Music co-ordinator Kate Henderson said the 29 little performers had been practising since June.
She added: “It was brilliant, they loved it.”
