The Military Wives Choirs broke a world record earlier this month whilst filming their new video as they came together for the first time to launch their new album and The Military Wives Choirs Foundation.
Over 600 members of the choirs were joined by Choirmaster Gareth Malone, at Wellington Barracks for the joint launch and video filming, breaking a world record for the biggest-ever video shoot in music history.
The day encompassed the announcement of new album, Stronger Together, and creation of The Military Wives Choirs Foundation.
Gareth Malone is the first Patron of the new Military Wives Choirs Foundation, which has been set up to provide practical help and support to the rapidly-growing network of choirs on military bases around the world.
Here are just some forthcoming performances from Military Wives Choirs.
