We took part in the Young Voices Biggest Sing!
On 15th June 2021 at 2pm children across the country sang the Bill Withers classic ‘Lovely Day’ with Billy Ocean, YolanDa Brown & Ruti, streamed LIVE from The O2 Arena.
All around the school, with the windows and doors wide open on a gloriously sunny afternoon, the sound of “Lovely Day” could be heard. The live streaming from the O2 Arena in London worked perfectly – there was no delay at all – everyone was perfectly synchronised.
The image above shows just one of the many pages from the Zoom Gallery View of all the different classes around the country taking part. St Matthew’s Primary School contributed more than 800 voices to the total.
You can watch the live stream again on the Young Voices YouTube Channel below.
Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley appeared on The One Show earlier this evening to explain that Guinness World Record officials need to verify all the numbers, but he was very hopeful that three records had been broken this afternoon – the largest simultaneous live sing, the largest simultaneous live signing and the most people singing on Zoom.
