Blake to perform with school choir

One lucky school choir will be selected by Blake to perform with the all-male group during its nationwide tour from August.

Crossover group Blake invited school choirs to submit YouTube videos of their performances following a tour of schools across the country, during which they gave performances and talks about the music industry.

Blake baritone Jules Knight admits “We partly did the schools tour to 'campaign' for our BRIT nomination, but then it became so much more than that to us. We could see that the kids were really engaged with what we did, and fascinated by our no holds barred account of the underbelly of the music industry.”

Tenor Ollie Baines adds, 'We then started thinking about how we could involve the pupils in our live shows, and realised that getting some of the choirs up on stage with us during our 25 date UK tour would be really fun, and a great experience for both them and us'.

Blake’s UK tour begins on 28 August. See their website for further details of venues and dates.
