Liverpool’s LMA Choir stage second lockdown performance for NHS heroes

28/04/2020

LMA Choir, who wowed Robbie Williams during 2018’s The X Factor and were later mentored by the star, have come together once more for a lockdown virtual performance.

The group from Merseyside joined forces remotely from their homes to stage a rendition of Ben E. King’s poignant song, Stand By Me, to help keep community spirit high during the current pandemic.

The performance, which features the vocal talents of all 13 members, follows overwhelming support for their first virtual performance earlier this month, which saw them take on Simon and Garfunkel classic, Bridge Over Troubled Water, to thank NHS workers fighting coronavirus.

Created at Liverpool-based media, music and performing arts institution LMA, LMA Choir competed in the live shows of The X Factor as part of global star Robbie’s groups category.

Following the show, the group went on to perform alongside the singer at his sell-out shows in Hyde Park and Wembley, as well as lending their vocal talents to his festive album, The Christmas Present. And, last June, Robbie cemented his commitment to LMA by becoming a co-owner, pledging to play a key role in its upcoming expansion plans.

Now, LMA Choir, who are following Public Health guidelines and staying home during the Coronavirus pandemic, are hoping their remote performances will help bring comfort and entertainment to everyone staying at home to help protect the NHS.

Stephanie Wallace-Carr, head of LMA Choir and musical theatre creative director at LMA, said: “We had a really fantastic response to the first song and it meant a great deal to us to be able to thank the amazing work that the NHS is doing at this time.

“Like everyone else, as a choir, we’ve been keeping in touch with video calls and trying to keep each other’s spirits up, making sure we all stay positive. So, working on a song together in this way has really strengthened our bond as a group and has helped us maintain some sense of normality, as well as hopefully bringing a smile to people’s faces!”
