New Military Wives album
THE MILITARY Wives choir has returned with a new album in time for Remembrance Sunday to raise funds for the choir foundation.
The album Stronger Together will be released on Monday, November 5, and is a follow up to number one album In My Dreams.
The album reunites 24 military choirs – including the Catterick WAGS Choir – with mentor and television choirmaster Gareth Malone who wrote some of the songs performed by the choir.
It also features the wives’ own version of Take That’s Rule The World, and new versions of Sing, with Gary Barlow, as performed at the Classic BRITs, and In My Dreams.
The Military Wives won the hearts of the nation after appearing with Mr Malone on the BBC Two series The Choir: Military Wives last year, and continue to go from strength to strength.
From the original 100 choir members who featured on the Christmas number one single, the Military Wives have expanded almost eight times their original size to 760 members from British military communities at home and overseas.
Stronger Together was recorded over 20 days by a mobile recording team who covered a distance of 4,500 miles, taking in choirs in Germany and Cyprus.
Last month, the Military Wives broke the world record for the biggest ever video shoot in music history, shooting the video for the title track Stronger Together.
A minimum donation of £1 per album sold at full price in the UK will be paid to the Military Wives Choirs Foundation, which supports and funds individual choirs and helps bring them together for national projects.
