A STOURBRIDGE choir will be supporting national deaf healthcare charity SignHealth's annual fundraising attempt, sign2sing.

SignHealth is holding its annual sign2sing record attempt next month and Stourbridge Rock Choir will be supporting the charity’s efforts by holding a fundraising event, which is open to the public, on Thursday February 6 from 8pm to 9.30pm.

The fundraiser, taking place at Thorns Community College in Quarry Bank, will see the choir singing and signing to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colours.

Christa Hugo, Rock Choir leader for Stourbridge, said: “We are really looking forward to the fundraiser. Learning to sign as well as sing will add a new and very interesting element to the song and we’re all really excited about the challenge.

“We hope lots of people will come along and join with us in helping to raise money and awareness for such a worthy cause.”

Rock Choir, founded in 2005 by singer and musician Caroline Redman Lusher, has become the UK’s largest contemporary choir.

There are no auditions or requirements to read music, so anyone can join. Members learn specially-arranged versions of pop songs which they perform at events, many of which raise money and awareness for charity.

Stourbridge Rock Choir rehearses at Thorns Community College, Quarry Bank, every Thursday during term time, from 8pm to 9.30pm.
