The award-winning One Voice Community Choir belted out a rousing Hark the Herald Angels during rehearsals on Saturday for the LEP’s Sing A Song For Christmas.
The Preston-based gospel choir - with members from across the North West - this year sang its way into the final of the BBC’s Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year, only narrowly missing out on the title.
Formed 14 years ago the choir has raised funds for many charities, and is known for lively and fun performances of gospel songs and inspirational classics. It is led by Tyndale Thomas, who has worked with many top musicians including the great Stevie Wonder.
On December 7 the choir will give the city A Christmas Cracker of a concert at the Salvation Army Hall. The Salvation Army expects to give out 600 food parcels this month and the concert is admission by food. The concert is fully booked but keep an eye on the ticket site for any cancellations (onevoice.freeevent.co.uk/).
A spokesman for the choir said: “You can support the cause with food donations to The Salvation Army, Harrington Street, Preston.
“Christmas puddings would be welcome, along with good in date dry and tinned food to help people this Christmas.”
Catch the inspirational choir at Clifton Lodge Nursery Christmas Fair in St Annes on Saturday December 14 and Preston’s St Georges Centre on December 18, from 6pm, to raise money for the charity Heartbeat.
