Talented singers from Linchfield Community Primary School in Deeping St James are celebrating after performing a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ gig at a packed Wembley Stadium in front of 10,000 people. The Year 5 and 6 pupils, ‘The Mini Gs’ played a starring role in the musical extravaganza, which was organised by the Voice in a Million group to raise awareness of fostered and adopted children.
The Linchfield Community Primary School choir, known as ‘The Mini Gs’, performed a choral version of an original song, written by members of the choir, called ‘It’s Nobody’s Fault’, which premiered at the Lincolnshire Schools' Prom last summer.
In November 2017, the Mini Gs went down to the London XL to audition for Britain’s Got Talent. While having a run through in the holding room, The Mini Gs were overheard by the creative director of ‘Voice in a Million’, an organisation which puts on large gigs for children, to raise awareness of fostered and adopted children. As part of the concerts, there are one or two featured choirs who will give their own performances. The creative director was hugely impressed with not just the quality of the children’s performance, but the content of the song, and invited The Mini Gs to perform ‘It’s Nobody’s Fault’ at Wembley on March 15th!
The event (once it finally arrived after weeks of rehearsals!) was absolutely fantastic - the children gave a stunning performance to an audience of thousands and the memories created will last a lifetime!
Teacher Richard Gombault said: “I’m very proud of the 49 children who sang. They gave the performance of their lives and having the opportunity to perform at the iconic Wembley stadium is something that I don’t think any of us will ever beat. The atmosphere was something else! During the rehearsals a few of the children were really nervous, but once they took to the stage to sing properly they really rose to the occasion. The experience gave the children an idea of what it is like to be a rock stars for the day, and they loved it.”
