These 5,000 choir kids sing ‘What About Us’ by Pink in a breathtaking display of unity and talent

Last summer at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley, these kids’ sung a spectacular version of the popular song, with the hand gestures and body movements to go along. They absolutely owned this, what a jaw-dropping performance.

At the beginning of the video, the camera zooms in on one girl as she starts singing the first part of ‘What About Us.’ Her beautiful voice radiates throughout the arena while the rest of the kids dance behind her.

That’s when the rest of the kids join in, the sheer power of all 5,000 voices together is stunning

With a select few of the older kids down low holding their own microphones, the younger kids pack the stands in a sea of white shirts moving about. When the chorus is over, one of the girls with a microphone starts singing a sensational solo.

Only a certain amount of kids could fit on to the stage, so the rest are in the stands waiting for their cue. When it’s time for them to sing again, they come in roaring a wonderous tone as one. They repeat the catchy chorus together:

“What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? What about us? What about all the other broken ever afters? What about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? What about love? What about trust? What about us?

Every time they come in to sing together the stadium echos with the love of 5,000 brilliant voices
