What is Voice in a Million ? What are our events all about ? and Why take part ?
Voice in a Million was set up in 2009; as a promoter of school / singing events, with an under-pinning message that raises awareness of the plight of children in care and the importance of Adoption and Fostering, both in the UK and worldwide.
In the words of Voice In A Million (VIAM) founders and adoptive parents, Robert and Jo Garofalo, “Through the accessibility of music we aim to bring to the public’s attention the importance of adoption and fostering children of all ages. Millions of children need ‘forever homes’ and we must never lose sight of this goal. Adoption is love to a child in care.”
Now celebrating its eleventh year, Voice In A Million presents an opportunity of a lifetime for school children from all backgrounds throughout the UK to come together united in song and perform in front of their own family and friends and indeed members of the general public.
VIAM fully endorses not just the psychological benefits to children who are actively encouraged to participate in music-based activities, especially singing, but also the health benefits and the intrinsic feeling of belonging that a choir can bring to a child in care.
VIAM Events showcase some of the finest young singing talent around whilst enabling school children to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of singing together in front of thousands. All the children taking part receive tuition, encouragement and support.
Individually they are given the chance to shine and join our ever-growing ‘Voice’, knowing that their involvement makes a difference to the lives of children less fortunate than themselves. Through dedication, passion and the voice of our mass choir, Voice In A Million’s message is growing and getting stronger every year.
