The Soldiers and Rock Choir

The close relationship between The Soldiers and Rock Choir was forged on the 'Coming Home' tour during March and April 2010. The link began in 2009 when Rock Choir founder Caroline Redman Lusher was asked to sing the Phil Collins track 'Against all Odds' on The Soldiers' double-platinum selling debut album Coming Home.

Since then bandmates Sergeant Major Gary Chilton, Sergeant Richie Maddocks and Lance Corporal Ryan Idzi have helped Rock Choir members celebrate the launch of the album Rock Choir Vol.1 at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Rock Choir and The Soldiers performed together at GuilFest 2010 and again with 7,000 members at Wembley Arena on Sunday 15th May 2011.

300 members took part in the Coming Home tour across 6 dates in England and Wales. Rock Choir performed its own support set of songs, then joined the boys onstage for four songs during The Soldiers' two sets - including the single 'Coming Home' with Britain's Got Talent superstar saxophonist Julian Smith.

In the spirit of Rock Choir, the tour wasn't compulsory. The members who took part enjoyed working hard and really committing to the extra free rehearsals.

In October 2011, the relationship went full circle and back to the recording studio where it had all started. Caroline was asked back to duet with Ryan on 'Wherever I Lay my Hat', a special extra track for The Soldiers' Message to You album. In the same month Warner released the Best of the Soldiers album which featured Caroline's original work on 'Against All Odds'.

The videos below capture some fantastic moments on stage and some of the hundreds of memories the members will treasure for a very long time to come.

Live at Southend

The tour was an incredible ride for the 300 Rock Choir members who took part. At times, it was emotional as you can see in this clip when The Soldiers star Ryan Idzi is seen fighting back the tears. It was an unexpected, wonderful and life-affirming Rock Choir experience.

The Surprise...

On Sunday the 20th of June 2010, The Soldiers surprised Rock Choir™ members at the Hammersmith Apollo to celebrate the 'Rock Choir Vol.1' album launch. Listen for the cheer as Gary Chilton and Richie Maddocks come on stage!

The Secret...

A very special link was formed between The Soldiers and Rock Choir during 2010. In this video the boys were brilliant sports and came out on stage halfway through their set with a surprise for the choir members (Richie Maddocks takes his shirt off onstage to reveal.....?!)

Live at Wembley
