Children from a school in Kenton were selected to take part in a Young Voices event in front of a sell-out crowd at the 02 arena.

Mount Stewart Primary School, in Mount Stewart Avenue, had 60 pupils chosen to join a 6,000-strong choir of London schoolchildren directed by renowned conductor David Lawrence.

Yvonne D’Souza, a teacher at Mount Stewart, said: “As a school we’re passionate about the power of music.”

Pupils performed alongside numerous other performers supporting the event, including Britain’s Got Talent star Connie Talbot at the event.
