RAH looking great in the December sun!
Such fun to sing with Frank Renton and the excellent band once more... and to sing to a full house along with so many great people...
Lee Mead gave wonderful renditions of Feeling Good & Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Margaret Keys sang the beautiful O Holy Night, Tom Lister sang I'll be Home for Christmas & the lovely Anne Reid sang The Christmas Song.
Along with Disney Voices (a new choir of Disney employees) and the girls choir from Sydenham High (conductor Caroline Lenton-Ward), we sang in Patrick Doyle's exciting anthem Ring Out the Bells, written especially for Bloodwise.
Other singers/speakers/readers included:
Danny John Jules, X factor's Che Chesterman & Nick Grimshaw, Sonna Rele, Arlene Phillips, John Michie, John Sergeant & Debra Stephenson who introduced us...(using many, many different voices!)...
It was great to contribute Strangers in the Night & A Festival of Carols in Two Minutes; and later to join with the band for Sleigh Ride... the audience were magnificent on their keys-jingle-bells & with their loud neigh at the end!
An exhilarating, life-enhancing evening full of joy; promoting and advancing such a good cause...
