WIRRAL members of the LMA Choir performed with global superstar Robbie Williams at his sold-out Hyde Park show this weekend.

The former Take That singer wowed more than 60,000 fans as he closed the British Summer Time festival on Sunday, July 14, with the group heading on stage to perform a selection of hits such as Angels, She's the One and Never Forget.

As judge on the X Factor last year, Robbie chose the LMA Choir as one of his final four acts and after finding a connection with the team, was more recently announced as a co-owner of LMA.

Three of the members are from Wirral, they are: Jessica Mahoney from Moreton, Andrew Morris from Bromborough and Cameron Povall from Woodchurch.

Jessica said: “Singing with Robbie on stage in front of thousands of people was absolutely amazing – the sheer energy from the crowd was overwhelming and we all felt so lucky to have been part of it.

“Once we were up there, we didn’t want to come down and we’re hugely grateful to Robbie for inviting us.”

Introducing the choir on stage, Robbie said: “What happens when you go on the X Factor is that you fall deeply in love with the contestants.

"I said to them when I was on the show ‘come and sing with me at Hyde Park’ and I’ve kept that promise.

"Give a round of applause please for my new mates from The X Factor, LMA Choir.

"Come on LMA. Show them what you can do.”

An education hub for all things music, creative media and performing arts, LMA provides accessible degree and BTEC courses for young people to discover and hone their skills.

Stephanie Wallace-Carr, head of LMA Choir and musical theatre creative director at LMA, said: “Working with Robbie on the X Factor was incredible – we all seemed to connect with him so well, both on and off stage, so to now have him on board as part of the LMA family is fantastic.

“Walking out on stage at somewhere as iconic as Hyde Park and performing alongside him was an experience that none of us will forget and we’re now excited for what the next chapter holds.”
