Westfield Stratford City, the University Gospel Choir of the Year and Youth Against Crime Not Crime Against You have partnered up to attempt the largest gathering of gospel singers ever seen. UGCY are a successful gospel choir made up of largely 16-24 year olds that aim to spread the messages of hope and unity one year on from the London Riots.

The mass choir features youth from all walks of life, including a choir formed specially from Emmy Award Winning Channel 4's Battlefront TV program, one year on from the London riots and during an historic year - the choir plans to uplift London in a record breaking attempt singing 'Oh Happy Day'
