MEET The One Voice Mob Adults!

Our One Voice Mob Choir have the amazing opportunity to visit Johannesburg, South Africa as part of a cultural exchange in November this year. The choir, which ranges in age from 6 to 60, will work with South African a capella trio, The Soil in an intensive weeklong singing masterclass. The program will conclude with a joint performance from both groups at the Regina Mundi Church in South Africa.

Last week, we introduced you to our bright young stars. Now, let us introduce you to the adults of One Voice Mob!

What is your favourite thing about the One Voice Mob? My favourite thing is the sense of family and the trust that we have for each other. Everybody is willing to keep developing which is also really nice.

What is the most exciting part of your trip to South Africa? I am most excited about journeying as a mob and I think it is going to be a really empowering and inspiring experience for all of us.

What is your favourite song to sing with the choir?

That’s a hard one. There are a few songs where the choir really gives their all and you can tell that it’s a favourite for many of us. I would have to say Nations and Walking on the Beat.

What is a fun fact about you?

I have been playing guitar for around 15 years and am self-taught.

Geraldine Moran

What is your favourite thing about the One Voice Mob?

We all get together and we’re not the best singers in the world, but we have fun and there’s the opportunity to be on a world stage. We probably wouldn’t have that opportunity without One Voice Mob.

What is the most exciting part of your trip to South Africa?

I am most excited about the young people travelling together and learning and experiencing another country. It’s such a great opportunity. For some of these young people, they may not have the opportunity to travel. That is the magic of what this trip will do; it will open their eyes to the possibilities.

What is your favourite song to sing with the choir?

I love Nations. I just love the sentiment that we are all one and can call on each other for support unconditionally. We love each other as a community and it’s wonderful. It means we can bring about change.

What is a fun fact about you?

I love dancing but I’m a really bad dancer.

What is your favourite thing about the One Voice Mob?

The enjoyment that the kids get. The social interaction and the knowledge they gain about singing and music each week is great.

What is the most exciting part of your trip to South Africa?

I am most excited for the kids. They are going to have such an incredible time getting involved in a different culture and they are so excited to see the animals.

What is your favourite song to sing with the choir?

Walking on the Beat – There is so much energy, all the kids radiate with it.

What is a fun fact about you?

I like to draw, especially line work.
