The choir began in 2016 at Executive Support LIVE London. Born of an idea we had to bring delegates together for a fun social activity in among the packed conference agenda, it’s grown to become a highlight of the global LIVE programme. We’ve taken the project to the USA, New Zealand and South Africa, introducing singing to Assistants from right across the globe.
During the COVID-19 panemic, the #OneProfessionOneVoice went virtual, with weekly Facebook Live sessions that Assistants could take part in from their own homes. It added a new dimension to this activity that brought so many people together – the camaraderie, belonging, and togetherness shone through in everyone’s involvement. People made new friends, were uplifted and gained confidence while so many things were uncertain or worrying.
During times of crisis, singing can bring people together and bring comfort, even if they are isolated from each other. Singing can provide comfort, togetherness, a sense of belonging, confidence, positivity, energy and a relief from stress. Even if you have never sung before.
