CHILDREN’S voices from Harlow’s Latton Green Primary School rang out at London’s 02 Arena last night (19th January) as part of a performance by the world’s largest children’s choir.

The Young Voices singing spectacular, which is celebrating 20 years of shows, involved some 7, 495 children from around the UK for a night of singing and dancing, with music styles ranging from classical to rock and beat box.

The 34 9-to-11-year-olds from Latton Green had an amazing time at the O2, which began with four hours of rehearsals, according to Head Teacher Miss Sinead McCarthy.

“The atmosphere at the O2 was electric as we performed a rock medley with Tabby Callaghan, X Factor finalist. We were honoured to also accompany him on his single, ‘Lost for a day’,” explained Miss McCarthy.

“The real highlight of the night for the children was performing John Farnham’s ‘You’re the voice’, with the singing accompanied by the sign language that the children have been learning and practising for months. They sang their hearts out and the atmosphere was amazing!”

Andy Instone and his amazing team at ‘Urban Strides’ performed some incredible dance routines. The children were able to join in and the entire audience rose to their feet to show their best moves for the ‘JT Remix 2017’.

Miss McCarthy added, “Everyone worked extremely hard for the performance, but ultimately, conductor David Lawrence said that the real stars of the night were the Young Voices children’s choir.

“This was an incredible experience for us. We enjoyed every minute and would recommend it to other schools who love to sing! Not everyone can say they have performed at the O2, but Latton Green’s choir can!”
