School choirs from all over the country gathered at the annual Voice in a Million event to perform popular songs.

In its tenth year, the event helps Adoption UK, a charity that supports and advocates for adoptive parents.

The children from Manor Primary performed songs like This Is Me from The Greatest Showman and Stormzy’s Blinded By Your Grace at last week’s show.

“For many of our pupils, this was their first concert that they have been to. What better way to foster their love of music by performing at the iconic Wembley Arena,” said Steve Buckley, deputy head teacher at the school.
