The Choir With No Name

My friend Marie runs a choir called The Choir with No Name. It was her idea in the first place and she has done an amazing job to get it off the ground, and keep it going. To read all about it click here, but to quote from their website

"The Choir with No Name is made up of homeless people and of other men and women from the very edges of our society. We're a diverse bunch of people; male and female, black and white, big and small, young and er, not quite as young, up and down...
We sing pop, rock, soul, gospel, reggae, musicals.. you name it, we'll give it a go.. although we've yet to try any thrash metal or grime. We rehearse once a week (with a decent dinner at the end of rehearsal!) and we perform in London regularly. We were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build up your confidence and abilities"

They recently appeared on This Morning, so here they are
