There’s nothing like a good choir to add that extra sparkle and uplifting quality to a rock and pop anthem. Here’s our pick of the best:
1. You Can’t Always Get What You Want – The Rolling Stones
A beautiful choral sequence starts this rock classic which then picks up pace, cleverly weaving the choir around its funky rhythm.
2. Proud – Heather Small
A fantastic uplifting tune about aspirations, Proud was used for the 2012 London Olympic bid.
3. Earth Song – Michael Jackson
A great call and response role for the choir with some dramatic vocals. A rousing song with great chord sequences.
4. Like A Prayer – Madonna
With a choir precence from the start, you can’t fail to join in and tap your toes to this funky gospel vibe.
5. New York – Paloma Faith
A big dramatic number which is elevated with great effect towards the end with a full choir sound.
