Thomas joined the choir in rehearsals and set them some exercises to warm up before they launched into their repertoire.

Paul and Annette said: “Hollowells is immensely proud of this new venture and look forward to the continued success of our boys at NMVC.”

Thomas is currently nearing the end of a UK tour of British choirs, getting back to his roots, and sharing his skills and experience before the launch of his first international album release.
