Local choir InChorus recently performed at a charity concert to raise funds for YMCA Scotland.
With ‘YMCA’ being the obvious choice for the finale, Angela Preston, fundraising manager at YMCA Scotland, contacted The Village People to ask for copyright permission – and was delighted that it was granted.
The song went down a storm, with some of the choir members wearing the well-known Village People head gear.
With a special request from The Village People to see the performance, InChorus pulled out all the stops on Monday evening to record the song again. Angela told us, “InChorus members have been fantastic. They put their hearts and souls into the performance. I am sure that their version of ‘YMCA’ will be seen by many people online, not least The Village People themselves.”
