A woman who sang in the historic Abbey Road recording studios where a multitude of international artists have worked said it was a breath taking moment.
Wendover mum Linda Petrons visited the world famous London studio following in the footsteps of The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Adele, Take That, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Kylie Minogue and Queen.
She was there to enjoy a special day out as a member of Rock Choir.
She said: “It was very, very exciting being in such a historic setting, imagining all those famous people having been there before us.
“It looks almost anonymous from the outside, it’s a double fronted Georgian house. It’s a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. There are loads of pictures on the walls of the people who have recorded there. It was quite overwhelming. My children Ed and Annie were impressed.”
Linda, who works as the events and corporate partnership manager for Sign Health, took up singing five years ago after her husband Joe died from skin cancer.
She said: “It was a way of escaping. I could go to choir and didn’t need to think of anything else other than the moment.”
She joined the Amersham branch of Rock Choir, a national contemporary choir with branches all over the country. Members of five groups attended the Abbey Road event and recorded a number of songs for personal use. At Sign Health Linda is working on a project called Sign to Sing.
The aim is to break the world record for the number of children and adults signing and singing at the same time. Two songs, Get Up And Sign and As One, have been written and will be performed by schools and choirs across the country and abroad on WednesdayFebruary 5 next year. Both songs were mastered at Abbey Road studios.
