Camden Voices, a choir featuring the talents of BA Music Production Deputy Programme Leader James Rees and various ICMP students, has released a virtual performance video in response to the coronavirus outbreak. 

As the UK faces a nationwide lockdown with much of the population self isolating and social distancing, the choir has released a cover version of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colours’ performed from choir members’ own homes.  

The video has since proved to be a viral hit and led to Camden Voices featuring on the BBC World Service

Commenting on the choir and performance, James said: 

“I’ve been singing in the choir for more than four years and it was one of the first things I chose to do when I first moved to London as I really didn’t know anyone.

We knew the coronavirus was going to affect us massively, and we ended up having to cancel all our upcoming gigs and rehearsals. This was a way to not only keep us singing but hopefully inspire others with some nice music!"

The choir features 30 members and has performed at a variety of venues including The Roundhouse, the Union Chapel and Southbank Centre, alongside making appearances on ITV and BBC Radio.
