YOU’RE THE VOICE: Community choir One Song Sing to Hold Back The River at Babylon this weekend

Newcastle-based pop-up choir One Song Sing are back this weekend, this time asking people to raise their voices at funky cocktail bar Babylon.

This time around, the choir will be tackling the evocative and stirring Hold Back The River by award-winning English artist James Bay and they want as many local voices as possible to join in!

The idea behind the community-focussed musical initiative is that the group will teach you the song, in three-part harmony in just one hour with everyone joining in to perform the song together.

One Song Sing has been around since June 2017 and they kicked off the whole concept Newcastle with the classic Church track, Under The Milky Way.

They have since tackled Paul Kelly’s How to Make Gravy, INXS smash hit Never Tear Us Apart and Fleetwood Mac’s Don’t Stop amoung others.

One Song Sing tackle Hold Back The River at Babylon Newcastle from 4pm on Sunday 9 June.

Tickets are $13 online of $15 at the door. Visit to book.
