The Big Distan-Sing

Following the success of our choir tutorial with music maestro Alex Patterson, we’re thrilled to launch The Big Distan-Sing.

Designed to raise the spirits and get everyone singing, we’re creating our very own music video and we want hundreds of you budding singers to get involved. All you have to do is record yourself singing ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ from the musical Hairspray – a song chosen on our social media poll – and send us your video and we’ll do the rest, editing together the entries to create a fun music video!

No previous experience is necessary and we’d love to receive entries from people of all ages.

Want to get involved?

Alex has also created a video explaining how to film your video entry. Have a watch below!

The deadline for entries is Monday 8 June 2020, and all videos should be sent to

Want to practice?

If you don’t know the song or want to have a practice first, we’ve got you covered. Click here to follow Alex’s online rehearsal!

You can record the song as many times as you like until you get one you’re happy with, but remember to just send us your favourite video clip. And have fun! This is a really upbeat and uplifting song, so we want to see you enjoying yourselves.

We can’t wait to see your videos!
