U's fan required to sing at Wembley
SONGS of Praise has teamed up with BBC Sport, as part of the BBC’s FA Cup programming, to offer football fans the unique chance to be in the Songs of Praise Football Fans Choir. The choir will sing Abide with Me, backed by the FA Cup Final military band in front of 90,000 people on the hallowed ground at Wembley on Saturday 30 May.
The choir will be made up of one fan representing each of the 64 teams who’ve made it to this year’s third round. (No singing experience is necessary!)
Songs of Praise are looking for stories that reflect the personal memories and passion of the cup from every level of the game. Maybe witnessing giant killings, perhaps the first time your non-league team made the third round or the first time your team were in the final with tales of great players, key moments, unforgettable goals and family anecdotes.
The competition opens on 17 January 2015 and closes on 7 March 2015.
A panel of judges from the worlds of football, music and journalism will read the best five stories representing each club and pick a winner.
Winners will be notified mid-April.
There will be a rehearsal before the big day at Wembley on 30 May!
