Barnsley Youth Choir Singathon

Yes kids, it was that time again! 13 hours overnight non-stop singing to raise funds for the choir, and in my case, 13 hours non-stop photographing.

We started Friday evening after work and school, through the night and finished the next morning. The kids were amazing – there were laughs and tears as well as Christmas songs, amazing solos and plenty of hot chocolate.

Together they raised an incredible amount which will go towards the choir and events – they are in fact off to Belgium in July to compete at the World Choir Games. They’re currently standing at third in their category rankings – “pop, jazz, gospel, spiritual and barbershop.” They are now the only choir from the UK in the top 25 of the Interkultur chart.

Go Barnsley!
