Victory for Severn Trent worker in BBC final
7:00am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
A Severn Trent worker from Kidderminster helped her workplace choir storm to victory in Gareth Malone’s BBC2 show Sing While You Work.
Jean Harrison, a commercial waste technical specialist, was chosen as one of 30 people to compete in Severn Trent ’s choir in the show.
Last night’s final episode of The Choir: Sing While You Work saw the Severn Trent choir sing their rendition of Feeling Good, made famous by Nina Simone, Muse and Michael Bublé.
The finale saw the three remaining choirs, including the Royal Mail and Lewisham NHS take to the stage in front of thousands at one of the world’s most prestigious choral music festivals, the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen.
The choirs were scrutinised by judges Ruby Turner, Ralph Allwood and Manvinder Rattan.
Severn Trent Water’s choir rose to the challenge and were complimented on their confidence on stage, singing and overall accomplished performance.
Mrs Harrison said: “We did it. Words cannot describe adequately just how we all feel about this amazing experience. To actually come away as the victorious choir was something we dreamed of, but the reality of it coming true is something else.”
