WellChild is launching the fourth WellChild School Choir of the Year competition for primary schools across the UK to see who can perform the best version of Can You Feel The Love Tonight, from Disney’s The Lion King. The winners will perform their version at the WellChild Awards, which is regularly attended by WellChild’s Patron HRH the Duke of Sussex and a host of celebrity guests. Visit www.wellchild.org.uk/schoolchoir to register your school and find out more.
Schools need to find 20 of their best musical stars and send WellChild a video of them singing their rendition of Can you Feel The Love Tonight. Schools can be as creative or as classical as they want, it’s up to them.
The competition will culminate in a live public vote from 26th May to 26th June 2020. The five schools with the most votes alongside the five with the highest fundraising total will qualify for the final judging by a panel of musical experts.
The winner will be crowned WellChild School Choir of the Year and will win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at the prestigious WellChild Awards regularly attended by the Duke of Sussex and a host of celebrity guests. The winner will be announced on 1st September 2020.
Last year’s winners Star Primary School from Canning Town, London, opened the 2019 WellChild Awards in front of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and celebrity guests with their show-stopping performance of the classic song Lean On Me by Bill Withers.
WellChild Chief Executive Colin Dyer said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for schools across the UK to get involved in a fun musical competition with a great prize while at the same time helping WellChild with our work supporting seriously ill children and their families. We would love to see as many schools as possible singing their hearts out with their version of Can You Feel The Love Tonight so please get recording your entry now!”

WellChild is the national charity for seriously ill children and their families. More than 100,000 children and young people are living across the UK with serious or exceptional health needs. Many spend months, even years in hospital simply because there is no support enabling them to leave. Meanwhile those who are at home face inconsistent and inadequate levels of support.
Through a UK-wide network of children’s nurses, home and garden transformation projects and family support services, WellChild exists to give this growing population of children and young people the best possible chance to thrive – properly supported at home, together with their families.
