A CHOIR from Ealing has signed an album deal with the company behind Lady GaGa, Take That and The Rolling Stones.
Ealing Rock Choir, the pop, gospel and Motown performance choir for adults, teenagers and children, has signed to the world’s largest record company, Universal, with a multi album record deal.
Members of Ealing Rock Choir, who come from all walks of life and rehearse on Tuesday evenings at St. Mary's Church, St. Mary's Road, Ealing from 8-9.30pm were astounded by the news.
Local singer and performer Christina Dymtryk, who leads the choir said: "The members couldn’t believe it when I told them we had been
offered a record deal by Universal. Rock Choir attracts individuals who in the main have not performed in public before. So being told they were going to sing on an album that is going to be released not only in the UK but also around the world was astounding."
Surrey-based singer and performer, Caroline Redman Lusher, the director and founder of Rock Choir, launched the concept in 2005.
Opening hundreds of new choir locations nationwide this year, everyone will have the opportunity to join Rock Choir and experience the benefits
themselves with no audition and no requirement to read music.
The group's increasing popularity led to an interview on the BBC breakfast show and live performance on the Paul O’Grady Show, which resulted in the signing to Universal.
Tom Lewis, head of A&R for Decca Records, the Universal label releasing the album also commented: "We are proud to be working with Rock Choir and to release what I believe is the feel-good album of the year. I hope that people around the world will put the CD on, crank up the volume, sing along and feel fantastic."
