Gospel Choir

On Thursday 4th July our Gospel Choir were invited by the BBC to attend the filming of the 3rd series of Antiques Celebrity Road Trip.  The episode they were filming for will see Sheila Ferguson, of the American pop band Three Degrees, investigating black history in Kent.  The choir, featuring 20 talented and committed year 7s and two leading year 12s, were invited to sing a rendition of ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’.  They sang the same song, in the same room in the Corn Exchange, that the group the Fisk Jubilee Singers sang in at the turn of the 20th Century.  The choir sang beautifully and did a great credit to the song, the school and themselves.  As an added bonus, Sheila even joined in on the last verses. It was also an eye opening experience to see ‘behind the scenes’ and have a glimpse into have TV programmes are shot. The show will air in the autumn.
