Wow! I’m not sure any other word describes the experience we had taking 40 of our girls to Voice In A Million 2018 at the Wembley Arena. It was a massive vocal extravaganza where about 3000 young people came together to sing, dance and have a fantastic time in the process. From the beginning to the end of the show, we were all mesmerised and enthralled by the music, lights, glow sticks and the sight of everyone wearing a signature VIAM t-shirt. There were also celebrity performances from HRVY and RoadTrip, much to the delight of the students, who were also able to meet them and get some treasured autographs.
Voice In A Million is an annual event bringing young people together around music. However, there is a stronger cause behind the event, which is to raise funds and awareness around adoption. Throughout the event, there were moving and uplifting stories of children now in homes and given hope and a family by being adopted.
Many thanks to the parents that were able to come; I know you had a great time. Congratulations to Tia who won our banner competition. From her design, we produced a full-size banner, which featured in the ‘banner parade’ at the start of the show.
Participation in events like this mean so much to the girls and give them memories and experience that lasts far beyond the moment. One of our students summed up it up for her: This was the best day of my life!
So, Voice In A Million 2019 anyone?
We would like share with you an email received from a parent, which is self-explanatory (names removed).
Dear Mr Bluck
I just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for all your hard work preparing the girls and rehearsing tirelessly with them for Voice in a million.
The evening was exceptional and I have to say our daughter is completely over the moon about the whole experience. Performing Arts is a big part of her life and I could see how inspired she is by this. I don’t think the girls will ever forget it and they took great pride in being Park school for girls.
Thank you once again to you and to Mrs Nicholas for bringing such opportunities to the girls.
