Shoppers stopped in their tracks as dozens of singers took over Whiteley Shopping Centre with their flash mob version of a Tina Turner classic. 

Buskerteers, a collection of choirs on a mission to raise £1 million for charity, raised £9,000 for Comic Relief on the day and are now releasing the song as a single in a bid to reach their £20,000 target before Red Nose Day on Friday. 

Led by Kurt Munro, conducting the singers dressed as the music icon Tina Turner, the choirs performed a powerful rendition of Grammy Award winning hit Proud Mary to the delight of the gathered crowds taking a break from shopping and dining.

Founder and director of the Buskerteers Choir, Andrew Small, was nominated for a Pride of Britain Award in 2021 for the group's fundraising. 

The total raised for charities so far is £122,522.91. Among the charities to benefit have been Sophie's Legacy, the Stubbington charity launched in memory of ten-year-old Sophie Fairall, who passed away in 2021 to improve conditions and research for childhood cancer patients and sick children. 

Sutton Scotney-based children's hospices Naomi House & Jacksplace have also been on the receiving end of a cash boost. 

The choir is open to anyone and everyone who wants to learn awesome songs by rote in three-part harmony, have great fun doing it and busk on the streets for charitable causes.
