CHOIR members from Rotherham enjoyed Christmas chart success as part of a 4,500-strong singalong.
The musical fundraisers were involved in the national Rock Choir single, which aimed to tackle loneliness and put mental health in the spotlight.
Singers joined forces over the internet to perform a new version of Keeping the Dream Alive, which went straight to number one in the iTunes UK download chart and the best sellers’ chart on Amazon Music.
They also linked up for a live singing event on their YouTube channel on Christmas Day.

Each singer contributed their voice during lockdown whilst many of them were shielding or at high risk.
They include front-line workers, including emergency services and NHS staff, carers, teachers and other members who have done a vital job throughout the pandemic.
All profits for the single, which features Rock Choir creator Caroline Redman Usher, will go to the Mental Health Foundation.
