We are keen supporters of the wonderful Cerebra, a charity devoted to helping improve the lives of children and young people with brain-related conditions and their families.
Tonight is a very special night as Cerebra ambassadors, the Angelicus Celtis Choir, take to the stage in the live semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) for a coveted place in the finals to battle for a slot in the Royal Variety Performance show before Her Majesty the Queen.
Angelicus Celtis hail from Llanelli in Wales and comprise 17 schoolgirls aged 12 years and over. The choir was formed last year by husband and wife team John and Jean Williams, who had been leading children’s choirs for more than 50 years when they decided to launch Angelicus Celtis.
Tragically, shortly after the choir was formed, John and Jean were involved in a serious road traffic accident on their way home from a VE Day Remembrance Concert. John was left badly injured and sadly, Jean lost her life, without ever getting to see their new choir perform.
The choir are huge supporters of the fantastic work of Cerebra and in the short time they’ve been together have raised awareness of the charity and significant sums of money so that Cerebra can continue to help as many children and young people as possible.
In the BGT auditions, the girls sang ‘Nessun Dorma’ winning four emphatic ‘yeses’ from the judges’ panel consisting of Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
Their beautiful rendition stunned the audience and left Simon Cowell in awe saying: “I’ve heard this song a lot. But this was, in my opinion, the most beautiful ever. It really touched me and I thought it was sensational.”
Tonight the choir will be giving the performance of their lives to try and reach the live finals of BGT and are hoping they will wow the audience and the judges again.
All of us here at Hyphen Law are rooting for the girls and we’re hoping that our clients, colleagues, supporters and friends can get behind them too. By spreading the word and encouraging as many people as possible to vote for them, we are sure that it will help to raise Cerebra’s national and international profile and raise more money for their amazing work.
You can watch the choir perform in tonight’s live semi-final show on ITV starting at 7.30pm (1st of June). And DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!!!
