“I Miss You”, the Missing People Choir song

Missing People Choir

The story behind the Missing People Choir

The Missing People Choir formed in summer 2014 masterminded by Clare Cook from the Missing People charity and Jim.  Its mission was to bring together the families and loved ones of the missing as a choir, to start something new, to enjoy music and singing together, and thereby raise spirits, share stories, bring encouragement and hope to the group.

Soon afterwards an idea formed that the Missing People Choir should have its own song for their Christmas performance.

Peter Boxell, whose son Lee has been missing since 1988 wrote the lyrics to the song ‘I Miss You’ in tribute to his missing son. Jim, along with professional writer and arranger, Simon Rhodes, wrote the song in the studio here initially to perform at the Missing People Carol Service at St Martin-in-the-Field on December 8th 2014.

The performance

The choir had just six full rehearsals together with Jim before the concert, some of the singers had never sung in a choir before and for the majority, this would be their first ever public performance. Nevertheless they raised their game and got over their nerves to deliver an exceptional and moving performance on the night, which touched the hearts of many people there.

Here’s quite a highlight of my year. I worked with the Missing People Charity to create a choir made up of families who are suffering the loss of a loved one. Many of the members were singing for the first time in their lives and I’m very proud of their achievement. This was a powerful experience and has reached out to a lot of people.
I invite you to support the Missing People Charity by sharing this video with your friends but most importantly, your family.
“where words fail, music speaks”

Kingston Rock Choir Show: Sold Out and Sang Out

Well, well, well Kingston Rock Choir, what a show! All Saints Church in Kingston Marketplace was packed on Saturday 21st June – the summer solstice and a wonderful sultry night filled with good music. The choir and soloists covered nearly 30 songs in two hours, in three, four, five and six part harmonies, complete with some tricky dance routines, all from memory! Best of all, the audience loved it and were engaged all the way through, joining in and adding to the vibe and joy that singing and listening to Rock Choir brings.

“I really enjoyed the show last night. It was very well put together.”

Kingson Rock Choir Small Group

The choir raised their game for their big show, the small group songs were arresting, and the soloists wiped the floor with their numbers. Jim, his sound man, Will, and other helpers worked exceptionally hard to bring it all together on the night, for which we are all very grateful.

Kingston Rock Choir Solo

“Jim was brilliant in keeping the crowd engaged and involved all the way through.”

A special thanks goes to All Saints, who gave us the venue free, and kindly provided wine and juice at the interval. We are pleased to say the concert raised over £1600 for the ASK renovation campaign.
