Two military wives, have founded a military children's choir in Stafford following a casual conversation on Facebook. The choir had its first rehearsal last month and the turn-out was wonderful!
Open to all
Erin is a professional musician with a passion for bringing music to children and adults from all walks of life. Kelly is a keen singer in the Military Wives Choir, with two youngsters who showed an immediate interest in the idea of singing with a new children's choir.
With lots of laughing at Erin, who does some terrible mum dancing while she conducts, and Kelly doing a great job of helping the littlest ones with the words, the group started off with some fun warm-ups before singing Don't Stop Believing by Journey and Don't Stop Me Now, which everybody thoroughly enjoyed!
Keen to have a go!
Many of the mums also joined in and the leaders were absolutely thrilled when, after sheepishly suggesting that there were a few solos required and expecting lots of shy faces, hands shot up in the air and lots of the children were keen to have a go.
