Bobby’s long-time stage partner, Tommy Cannon, hosted the concert and was joined by a host of actors, comedy stars and singers for the charity event.
Simon Martindale, Community First Responder and choir member told us all about the night: “The concert went really well. Our main performance was with D3VA and we sang the Adra Day song ‘Rise Up’. The reaction from the audience when we went on stage was amazing and we felt so energised by that. At the end of our performance, we got a standing ovation. The noise was deafening!”
During rehearsals, the choir met some very famous faces including Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford and Tommy Cannon and watched a performance by Russell Watson.
Simon added, “I couldn’t single out a highlight, there were too many. But being first on stage for the grand finale and the thunderous applause that greeted me is definitely up there. This was my first performance with the choir and I am proud to be part of it. We’re a family who are there for each other consistently.”
The choir are now looking forward to the Christmas carol services they have planned.
