We are taking part in the Young Voices Biggest Sing!
The normal Young Voices Concerts could not take place in January and February this year because of the 2021 lockdown, so the Young Voices organisers are planning a different kind of event.
They are aiming to smash their own Guinness World Record™ for the Largest Simultaneous Sing-Along and top the charts with a charity single! Not only that now participants will also be able to ‘sign’ to break the Largest Simultaneous Signed Song record!
YV Biggest Sing will be the flagship event of Children’s Mental Health Week. Hundreds of thousands of children, their teachers and families will come together all over the UK, the US and the rest of the world in the safety of their schools and/or home to sing the iconic song ‘Lovely Day’ by Bill Withers with special guest artists to raise vital funds in support of Place2Be, our chosen charity for 2021.
On 15th June 2021 at 2pm children across the country will sing the Bill Withers classic ‘Lovely Day’ with Billy Ocean, YolanDa Brown & Ruti, streamed LIVE from The O2 Arena.
And you may not know that while Young Voices began in the UK , there is a Young Voices USA, so children across America will be joining in at the same time. Here in Britain, we will be singing at 2pm, but children on the eastern side of America will be singing at 9am, and if children on the west coast of America want to join in, they will have to get up early and be ready to sing at 6am in their time zone!
In a time where music and singing could not be more important for the mental health of our children, this is truly the perfect YV event of the year!
Classes are practising in their bubbles in school, but if you want to practise at home, you can play the track using the audio player below.
And if you’re not sure of the words yet, we’re reproducing them here as well.
