If you regularly view BBC 1’s flagship religious show, Songs of Praise, you’ll know that for the past two years they have run a competition to find the best gospel choir in the UK. The competition is now in its third year, and is on the lookout for the best amateur gospel choir in the UK.
So, if your choir thinks it’s got what it takes to lift the Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year trophy this year, please send in your entries. The finals will be filmed in July later this year, in front of a packed audience in London, complete with judges and a joyous atmosphere.
For more information about the Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year competition, and how to enter, visit www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006ttc5 to learn what all the excitement is about. The clip features Ken Burton, who led workshops with the 2014 finalists as they prepared to sing at the competition.
Please note that the closing date for entries is Friday 1st May 2015, but don’t delay – start getting ready to enter NOW!
