BBC Radio makes 6Music

The weekend breakfast show on BBC 6 Music is scouring the UK looking for the best choral version, by a kids choir, of a 6 music song. The idea for the competition was sparked by a choral version of The Kaiser Chief’s I predict a riot, which has been re-sung by a Warrington choir.

Natasha Desborough, presenter of the show, told "It can be from the current crop of bands we’re playing on the show; The Kaisers, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, The Arcade Fire, or it could be a classic, Hendrix track, or something from the Stones, Led Zep, Radiohead or Oasis’.

"We want parents to encourage their kids, we want music teachers to jump on board — it’s a great way of making music accessible to kids who are probably more interested in singing Maximo Park than Mozart. If you’re at school and you want to have a crack at this – get a load of mates together and get rehearsing.’

Entries via CD or MP3 will be accepted up until the closing date of Friday 13th April. For details on how to enter visit Natasha’s page on the 6 music [link=]website[/link].

All of the entries will go on the 6 music website, then over the weekend of the 15th April the 6 music listeners will vote for their favourite, the three with the most votes will visit the station the following weekend (21st) and sing live in front of a panel of judges with the winners getting what thousands of bands in the UK would love to have: two weeks of airplay on BBC 6 music.
