Wattisham: Military Wife In Jubilee Concert

The wife of a serviceman based at RAF Wattisham in Suffolk is telling Heart about what it was like to perform in the big concert for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The event took place on Monday outside Buckingham Palace and featured music from acts like Jessie J, Cheryl Cole, Kylie Minogue, Tom Jones, Elton John and Framlingham's Ed Sheeran. 

Liz Simpson is part of the Wattisham Military Wives choir who were not only asked to perform at the show but were also featured on the official Jubilee single 'Sing' which was co-written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow. Barlow also co-ordinated the concert.

Liz was one of the soloists and says it would be great if Gary Barlow got a knighthood for all the work he did: "He's a great guy. He's very natural, he's very encouraging. He's done so much. This concert was a huge task. Even the track 'Sing' alone and I think he did it all within 5 or 6 months, which is just incredible."

The Wattisham Military Wives Choir will also be performing at tomorrow's Suffolk Show at Trinity Park at 3pm.
