ONLY BOYS ALOUD TO JOIN ONLY MEN ALOUD IN CARDIFF
Only Men Aloud’s Decade Gala Celebration Concert – a celebration of the last ten years at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff on Sunday the 21st of October has gotten bigger with the addition of Only Boys Aloud. Tickets are on sale right now through www.wmc.org.uk
Since their formation in 2010 by Tim Rhys-Evans – the inspirational music director behind renowned male choir Only Men Aloud – Only Boys Aloud has offered once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to hundreds of boys across Wales to perform on platforms large and small across the UK, as well as numerous TV appearances and recordings.
With 14 choirs working in some of the most deprived areas in Wales, word of this phenomenon has spread throughout the globe. The boys’ Britain’s Got Talent audition clip has had well over 24 million views on YouTube and we have messages posted almost daily on our website from around the world.
Created for a one-off concert in 2010, OBA has gone from strength to strength, gaining a momentous 3rd place in Britain’s Got Talent in 2012, performing at Buckingham Palace in 2013 to celebrate the anniversary of the coronation, launching a brand-new Royal Caribbean Cruise Liner and much, much more. Inclusivity is central to the scheme.
Ten years ago this coming summer, Only Men Aloud became the Last Choir Standing, winning the BBC1 primetime show and becoming Britain’s favourite choir. They will be performing many of their hits from the last decade and delighting audiences with their unique sound, style and perfect harmonies. The vocal group have asked their very loyal fan group what their favourite songs have been from over the past ten years, and many of these will feature in the Decade Concert.
