On Monday 27th of February, The Gainsborough Academy hosted Singsation, which featured Hayley Sanderson, the vocalist from Strictly Come Dancing, and her band. Six local primary schools participated in the event, as well as The Gainsborough Academy’s school choir, to create a choir of over 200! Schools have been working hard over the last few weeks taking part in workshops to learn a Latin and a pop medley, which were sang in 3 different parts, including popular songs such as ‘We Don’t Talk about Bruno’ and ‘Havana’. Gainsborough Academy’s choir also performed two pieces for our guests and sang a beautiful rendition of ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from Moana and ‘Just the Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars. Students also got the chance to ask Hayley and her band questions about what it was like to work on Strictly Come Dancing and get an insight into working in the music industry.
An excellent afternoon was had by all and The Gainsborough Academy are looking forward to inviting the primary schools back for future events.
