Talented singers from Thomas Clarkson Academy became part of the world’s largest school choir when they took to the stage at the O2.

The academy’s 45 students became part of the Young Voices Choir and performed to thousands on January 30

A highlight was the opportunity to sing the classic Son of a Preacher Man with X Factor finalist Stacey Solomon.

The choir belted out a number of songs, including Pop Medley and Living on a Prayer, along with 7,600 other students from hundreds of schools across the country.

Teacher Gayna O’Rourke who organized the academy choir’s participation in the event said: “The students learned a huge amount about how to perform in front of a large audience. As a result their self-confidence and enjoyment of singing has improved immeasurably.

“It was a really electric atmosphere and the students loved it.”

The academy hopes that this will become an annual event in the choir’s calendar.
