One Voice Community Choir received a last-minute call to join the world tour of The Man, The Music, The Show.

With just five weeks to rehearse the choir, now in their 20th year, were the backing group for The Greatest Showman himself.

One Voice performed You Will Be Found from Dear Evan Hansen, One Day More from Les Miserables and a A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman.

Choir spokeswoman Sarah Clementson said: “Around 5 weeks ago, I was sat on the sofa watching TV when out of the blue, I received an email and initially thought it was a joke.

“I replied and things just snowballed from there.”

The choir performed for three nights at Manchester Arena.

Louise Gooch from the choir said: “It was an incredible experience, a million dreams come true and although it was so nerve-wracking, the adrenaline took over and I was able to take it all in.

“Performing at Manchester Arena in front of thousands is something I’ll never forget!”
