Kids Choir Leaves Simon In Tears With Powerful Song About The Planet On Britain’s Got Talent 2020
SOS From The Kids is an eco-choir of four to sixteen-year-olds appearing who auditioned on UK talent show, Britain’s Got Talent in season 14. The choir focuses on climate change and the environmental crisis that the world is facing today.
SOS From The Kids moves the judges into tears.
The two brothers Sim and Noah Macaulay formed the choir group, SOS from the Kids. In their audition, they sang an original song about climate change which Sim had written with the help of his mother Dorry Macaulay. he brought together his brother, cousin Coen Baines and a group of close friends to record the song.
Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams, and Simon Cowell were left watery-eyed after their performance about saving the planet.
One of the moving lines of their song was “Don’t listen to the fat cats, they only want their cream. Always need oil, for feeding their machines” referencing big brands and corporations who refuse to acknowledge the urgency of the crisis in the world.
The choir ended their original song with a line full of hope, “we can do better than this,” before receiving a standing ovation from the studio audience and all four judges.
Alesha remarked ‘watching you guys on stage is just so joyful – I think you’re gonna inspire so many people to do their bit’, with Amanda adding ‘when you hear this from children’s voices you’ve got no choice but to listen’.
Simon praised the group saying “You know what kids rule the world right now. You’re exactly what I was hoping we would find this year here.”
In November last year, the choir took to Parliament Square in London to perform at the Global Youth Strike for Climate. Afterwards, Sir David Attenborough personally wrote a letter to Sim and Noah to thank the brothers.
S.O.S. From the Kids has now released its first single, ‘Stand As One’, a song to thank front-line workers in the fight against COVID19. Song profits go to NHS Charities Together and Masks for NHS Heroes.
