Gary Barlow flies the African ‘Sing’ children to the UK for special performance!
Gary Barlow is set to fly over some of the young singers who appeared in his and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Sing’ video for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.
The young performers are being flown over from Africa to sing for the Queen on June 4 outside Buckingham Palace.
Barlow came across them while recording a Jubilee single in a number of Commonwealth countries.
The Slum Drummers from Nairobi’s Kibera slum will take part when Barlow’s track Sing is performed for the Queen.
“We had the pleasure of calling them last week to say we’re going to fly them over for the concert, so they’re going to come and play at the concert and meet the Queen – so it’s changed their bloody life.
“Their visas are being sorted – it’s amazing,” he added.
The youngsters had never even heard a recording of themselves until Barlow worked with them, putting the track together on his laptop.
“I played them back and they’d never heard anything like it, they were crying,” he said.
Anyone else getting a little misty-eyed?!
