IT’S set to be a night they’ll Never Forget.

Southampton based pop, soul and gospel performers Love Soul Choir are to take to the stage alongside Take That in the city this weekend.

Thirty members of the popular choir, who have appeared on prime time TV and sung with Susan Boyle, have been busy rehearsing for their biggest ever performance, providing backing vocals for the world’s biggest boyband in front of a sold out crowd of more than 30,000.

Love Soul Choir general manager Dan Cooper told the Daily Echo: “We’re so excited about it. Their songs are so anthemic and songs that everyone seems to know and recognise.

“It’s such an amazing opportunity for us. We’re so well rehearsed and we know what we’re doing so I’ve told everyone to just take it all in, soak it up, as it’s not something most people get to do. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. I don’t want people to be nervous, I want them to go out and love every second.

“Take That are great. Bring it on!”

Members are remaining tight-lipped about which songs they will perform, but Relight My Fire is already part of their impressive repertoire.

Choirs in other cities on the Odyssey tour have performed the retro chart-topper with Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and special guest Lulu, as well as 1995 smash hit Never Forget.

The 125 strong Love Soul Choir is celebrating its tenth birthday this year, performing at the reopening of Mayflower Theatre following its major refurbishment towards the end of 2018 and bringing their regular One Sound show to 1,000 people at 02 Guildhall Southampton recently.

Members were previously finalists on Channel 5’s Don’t Stop Believing and featured on BBC’s The Big Performance with Gareth Malone.

The vocal group also amassed nearly 1 million views for a Flashmob performance in Westquay in 2017.

Choir bosses were approached a few months ago by Take That’s management team with a view to appearing on stage in Southampton, but have had to keep the exciting news quiet until now. They also held internal auditions to 30 talented singers set to perform alongside the trio.

Take That, supported by Rick Astley, play St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Take That will be performing all their much loved greatest hits live during the 30th anniversary tour, which follows the release of Odyssey, a journey through the incredible musical history of one of the UK’s most successful bands of all time.
