The group from Cedarwood Primary School in Kesgrave took part in the Voice in a Million concert this month, which aims to highlight the plight of children in care and barriers facing adopters.

Out of around 200 schools involved, Cedarwood was one of six chosen to sing on the main stage, which has played host to some of the biggest entertainers from around the world.

Curtis Redden, the school’s music coordinator, said: “They had a great day, it was a brilliant.”

In its seventh consecutive year, Voice in a Million is billed as the “world’s most sensational school concert” and it raised money for good causes such as Adoption UK.

Mr Redden said the choir sang pop hits and Disney favourites.
