Help our Choir reach No.1!
Members of the Earl Mountbatten Community Choir are lending their voices to a national Christmas charity album aiming to inspire hope during difficult times.
The choir has joined 12 other singing groups, collectively known as “Choirs with Purpose”, to produce an album called Stand Together.
Each choir has a special message to deliver through music – from the Missing People Choir who were finalists at Britain’s Got Talent to the chart topping Greenwich and Lewisham NHS Choir. Earl Mountbatten Community Choir is featured as part of the newly formed UK Hospices Choir.
Each choir will contribute one track to the album and all singers have come together for one special single, led by Pop Idol winner and presenter Michelle McManus.
Fraser Simpson, who leads Earl Mountbatten Community Choir and is the hospice’s music therapist, said: “Considering our choir only launched in January, it is amazing how far we have come together! I’m so delighted that the Isle of Wight is represented among the 1600 singers on the album, and I hope that people will support it.”
Stand Together is an album of uplifting cover songs which will be released on December 15, but is available for pre-order now at www.pledgemusic.com/projects/choirswithpurpose. All profits will be divided between the choirs’ charities.

Did you know? Earl Mountbatten Community Choir is open to everyone, of any age and any ability. You don’t need to know how to read music, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung in a choir before. We believe that everyone can sing, and that singing is good for us! We aim to be inclusive and – first and foremost – to have fun! The choir meets at 6:30pm every Wednesday in the John Cheverton Centre on the hospice site.
