Girl Sings Sweet Solo— Her 39 Classmates Join In & There’s Not A Dry Eye In The House.

Is there anything sweeter than the sound of a child’s sweet soprano rising high into the rafters of an auditorium?

The St. Patrick’s Junior Choir from St Patrick’s Primary School in Drumgreenagh, Northern Ireland spends hours practicing their songs. The choir consists of forty talented children vocalists, each cuter than the last, and they’re devoted to creating a joyful sound as often as possible.

As one little girl in the choir puts it, “We are unique because we have powerful voices and we make a very lovely tune.”


All of the choir’s hard work paid off in May 2017 when they were invited to perform on “Britain’s Got Talent.” The kids are all between the ages of eight and twelve years old, so this is definitely the height of their musical careers thus far.

The children, all dressed in bright green St. Patrick’s sweaters, brought their winning smiles with them that day. While they are undeniably adorable, it was the sheer beauty of their voices that brought all four judges to their feet.


Lead by their teacher, Patricia, the choir sang a very unusual song. Instead of the traditional hymnal-type music you might expect, they chose the song “Somewhere Only We Know,” by Keane.


One little girl started the song alone, and then another sweet voice joined in. By the time the entire choir began to sing, the audience was applauding like crazy. There must not have been a dry eye on the house! Even Simon gave the kids a standing ovation when they were done.


By far the greatest thing about this performance, aside from the kids’ beautiful voices, is the looks on their faces when they realize that this entire auditorium full of people is on its feet, cheering for them.


Is someone slicing onions in here?!
