The Choir With No Name

The Choir with No Name runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people.

Information from their website: We’re a diverse bunch of folks; all genders, all colours, all ages - everyone is welcome. We sing pop, rock, soul, gospel, reggae, musicals... you name it, we’ll give it a go... although we’ve yet to try any thrash metal or grime. We have four choirs: in Birmingham, Liverpool, our recently merged London 'superchoir' (run in partnership with the Charity Look Ahead) and Brighton (run in partnership with Brighton Housing Trust). Each choir gets together to rehearse every week (with a decent dinner at the end of rehearsal!) and we perform regularly. We were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build up your confidence and abilities.
