Voice in a Million at Wembley
Published: 08.02.16Adoption UK has once again been chosen as a partner charity by the Voice in a Million (VIAM) concert which returns to London’s SSE Arena Wembley for two nights in March.
Wembley arena will rock to the strains of a mass choir, made up of 10,000 schoolchildren assembled from all over the UK, who will perform on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd March. Special guest performers this year also include Britain’s Got Talent stars Bars and Melody and Calum Scott and Charli Beard from last year’s X Factor.
The schoolchildren will be united in song to raise awareness and give a voice to the millions of youngsters who do not have a family to look after them. A choir of 5,000 children will take to the stage each night in front of a packed audience to spread the important message. Destiny Africa Children’s Choir will also be flying in from Uganda to lead the choir in the theme tune for The Save the Children/Children United initiative.
Adoption UK’s chief executive Hugh Thornbery said: “We’re delighted that the founders and organisers of Voice in a Million have once again chosen to support Adoption UK at this year’s concerts and we’re so grateful for their continued support.
“As well as being truly enjoyable events, these concerts also enable us to engage with schools and community groups to help raise greater awareness of the ongoing needs of children unable to live with their birth parents and how best to support them.”
Mr Thornbery added: “The concerts also provide valuable opportunities for us to gain new supporters and raise vital funds which help us to continue to reach, support and give voice to adoptive families.”
The VIAM concerts were founded in 2009 by husband and wife Robert and Jo Garofalo who adopted their son and then later decided to create the show which would highlight the plight of children around the world in care.
The concerts are on 2 and 3 March 2016 and start at 7.15pm (doors open at 6.30pm).
