Rugby League Challenge Cup Fans’ Choir
A few months ago BBC’s Songs Of Praise announced the launch of the Rugby League Challenge Cup Fans’ Choir. Fans from 32 of the teams in this year’s Challenge Cup lead the capacity crowd of over 80,000 at Wembley in a stirring rendition of ‘Abide With Me’ ahead of the final, which takes place 27th August. Steve Thompson will be rehearsing and leading the Fans choir.
A special edition of Songs Of Praise following their journey will also be broadcast on BBC One the following day.
The competition follows on from last year’s successful Songs Of Praise fans choir which saw 64 football fans chosen from thousands of entries to sing at Wembley ahead of the FA Cup Final.
