UCan Play was delighted to work with our long established partner, NYMAZ, and the Norfolk Music Hub to produced The Big Sing 2020. This was streamed online on Friday 19th June and featured a plethora of amazing artists including Jessie J, Nicola Roberts, The Kingdom Choir (including our good friend Wayne Ellington), Danny Jones and many other,

Our technical lead, Chris Bowes, edited and arranged all the pre-recorded video content for the stream. He built a set within OBS for live use by the host, Mark De-Lisser, and managed the You Tube streaming during the event. Monitoring the live chat is a laborious task and it was all hands to the pump in that respect despite numerous filters that managed to block out some of the inappropriate content.

It was enjoyed by 1000s of children, families and schools across the country. You can watch some of the beautiful reactions to the The Virtual Big Sing 2020 by clicking on the Twitter hashtag #VBS2020.

All in all, it was a superb event that you can rewatch today, at 2pm on Sunday 21st June.
