Now, hitting the high notes can, apparently, be good for your health. Just ask members of a choir in Sussex and they'll gladly confirm that's the case. Brighton goes Gospel has gone from strength to strength since it was set up sixteen years ago and now has 130 singers from all walks of life. They've been rehearsing for two concerts, which take place tomorrow. Tom Savvides joined them for a practice session.
Brighton Goes Gospel choir has been rehearsing for two major concerts in the city at the weekend.
The group, which has 130 members, has gone from strength to strength since it was set up sixteen years ago.
The choir will perform 'FEELIN' GOOD' in matinée and evening concerts tomorrow at Roedean School in Brighton.
Members say 'feel-good factor' is one of the many reasons membership continues to grow - they point to a recent study by Tenovus Cancer Care and the Royal College of Music, which has shown that singing in a choir for just one hour boosts levels of immune proteins, reduces stress and improves mood.
Some are experienced singers, others have never sung before but they are all coming together on Saturday to put on a spectacular show. More than a hundred and twenty members of Brighton's Gospel Choir will take part in a summer concert at the Clarendon Centre and a special guest will also be performing. Tom Savvides caught up with the choir during rehearsals.
