‘High Hopes Choir’ strikes a chord with the nation December 12, 2014

Tyrone Productions eye moisteningly inspirational documentary series ‘The High Hopes Choir’ has struck a huge chord with audiences nationwide, with the shows single, a cover of Kodaline’s ‘High Hopes’, hitting number one in the itunes chart after the second episode aired on RTE last night.

The High Hopes Choir follows David Brophy, former principal conductor of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, as he embarks on his mission to form Ireland’s first homeless choir, to help change the public perception of what it means to be homeless in the process, as well as raising funds to support the services and facilities which play a vital part in ending the cycle of homelessness.

Last nights show saw the choir record High Hopes after receiving advice from the likes of Bressie and Ed Sheeran, with members of the group (and viewers like me at home) visibly moved to tears after being hit with the news that they would be performing live on The Late Late Show in the episodes closing moments.

The single, which is hair raisingly good, is currently available to purchase on itunes and Google Play, with 90 cent from each download split equally between Dublin Simon Community, Saint Vincent De Paul and Focus Ireland.
