Jersey's Aureole Choir has come together as part of the Black Lives Matter movement, which is taking place across the world.

The choir is one of the first in Europe to meet in person and sing together since the coronavirus outbreak.

The simple message is to show solidarity with those protesting in the USA following the death of George Floyd in police custody.

At 3pm this afternoon (5 June) choir members, along with 'The Voice' star Moya, met at Ouaisne to sing their version of the anti apartheid song Something Inside (So Strong).

A Black Lives Matter logo was created on the beach by Jersey artist Andy Coutanche.

Singing has well proven benefits to people's sense of well being and Aureole Choir was formed during lockdown to provide an extra opportunity for our singers. Jersey has a rich and diverse choral scene, from choirs who win international competitions to singing groups who meet for a bit of fun each week, and we have been delighted to welcome guest singers from many of these fabulous choirs.

The Aureole Choir Charity says it aims to raise money for other local charities who are working with the isolated and vulnerable in Jersey.
