One of the most memorable days of my stay in Mumbai was the choir leaders’ training day. The first choir leaders I met that morning were Ashish and Pratibha. Ashish said ‘we’re the reason you’re here!’ which I found so moving as I recognised their faces as children from the Sound of Mumbai film I’d recorded the backing track for back in 2010. All of the choir leaders were so welcoming and fun to work with. Their singing was really strong and we worked on a song for them to perform at the concert without the children. The day whizzed by and there was a lot of silliness and laughter as well as concentrated sharing of ideas and songs. ‘Here Comes Sally’ was so popular that we gave an impromptu rendition at the end of the concert before we all said goodbye.
