VIEWERS of Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen saw an amazing performance from the National Choir of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets at the weekend of their audition at the London Palladium.
The choir led by Director of Music, Squadron Leader Dave Massam RAFAC, a former member of Merseyside Wing and including Cadets from Squadrons from across the North West and the UK, earlier this year performed highly energetic versions of several hits by Queen including We Will Rock You, Radio Ga Ga and Fat Bottomed Girls to the delight of the audience.
Mark Armitage BA (Hons) Flying Officer RAFAC at the Royal Air Force Air Cadets said: “Although singing is not included as one of the core activities within the RAF Air Cadets, it has found a home there, helping Cadets to develop the skills that the organisation strives to embed in its members, including teamwork, communication, commitment, confidence, resilience and responsibility and has strived to do so since its inception in 2016, with this performance aimed at showing the people of the United Kingdom just what they as Air Cadets could do.
“The audition met with a huge applause from the audience and with four Yes votes from the Judges and some very positive comments from across the panel, leaving all the Cadets feeling like they were indeed the ‘champions of the world!’
“David Walliams said it was ‘Just Magic, Alesha Dixon ‘loved the energy’ and Simon Cowell said that we ‘Made us enjoy what you did.’
“Amanda Holden said: ‘So smart, so gorgeous and respectful, an amazing audition.’”
The Royal Air Force Air Cadets is open to all young people ages 12 (Year 8) to 18 and offers the opportunity for Cadets to experience many areas including Flying, Gliding, Target Shooting, Leadership, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, visits and camps to active RAF Stations across Europe and much more.
