[NEWS] Sheryl Crow to perform with the Aberdeen Choir at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball 

Aberdeen’s student choir will open this years’ Snowflake Ball in New York alongside Sheryl Crow

Aberdeen University’s Chapel Choir will take centre stage at one of the world’s most prestigious fundraising galas in New York next week.

Led by Royal composer Paul Mealor, the students will open the event and sing alongside headliner Sheryl Crow at the 2018 UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York on Tuesday. The gala is a celebration of Unicef’s work and an opportunity to raise awareness about the critical issues it faces. Since 2004, it has raised more than $34 million for Unicef USA.

Professor Mealor said the occasion was a “once in a lifetime opportunity” for the choir and rounds off an incredible year in which its members have performed for Her Majesty the Queen at both Balmoral Castle and Buckingham Palace.

Mr Mealor said: “Our students are incredibly talented and the Chapel Choir is gaining a reputation for the quality of its performances around the world.

“We have been lucky enough to entertain Her Majesty the Queen at Balmoral, but to be part of an event as spectacular as the Snowflake Ball – and to perform alongside an artist of the calibre of Sheryl Crow- is truly amazing.

“Better still, we will be helping to contribute to raising funds to support the great work that UNICEF does around the world.

“We are indebted to a number of wonderful donors who enable us to travel extensively both in the UK and overseas.

“This tour could not have happened without their amazing generosity.”

The gala celebrates the work that UNICEF does for children and is an opportunity to raise awareness about the critical issues they face as well as funds for the charity.

It also provides an opportunity to honour the contributions made by notable public figures, with this year’s George Harrison Humanitarian Award to be presented to Sir Ringo Starr.

In tribute, the Choir will join with Sheryl Crow for a special rendition of the Beatles’ Here Comes the Sun.

Professor Mealor understands the significance for his students of their voices being heard on such a big stage.

His own music was catapulted to fame when his work Ubi Caritas was selected for the 2013 wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

He has since enjoyed huge success with his work performed at the world’s largest concert venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, where his tribute to the fallen of the First World War, Requiem Souls of the Righteous, premiered on November 11.

Despite his personal success, he said leading the University Choir, a role he has enjoyed for the last 10 years, remains his greatest honour.

“The University of Aberdeen has a tradition in choral music stretching back to its foundation more than 500 years ago,” Professor Mealor said.

“It will give me immense pride to be able to showcase how we have built upon that legacy to produce a versatile vocal group as comfortable performing popular music as it is liturgical music.

“We hope that guests at the Snowflake Ball – and especially Sir Ringo Starr – will enjoy our special Beatles arrangement and the new twist the voices of the University of Aberdeen’s Chapel Choir can bring to these wonderful songs.”

REVIEW

Elton John Pays Homage to Aretha Franklin, Raises $3.9 Million to Fight HIV/AIDS at 2018 Gala

By Joe Lynch
Billboard Magazine

Sheryl Crow, Gayle King and more joined Sir Elton at his annual fundraiser.

On a rainy Manhattan Monday (Nov. 5) evening, Elton John, his husband David Furnish and a slew of celebrities and philanthropists gathered in the elegant Cipriani 42nd Street for the annual gala to raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The evening, entitled An Enduring Vision, raised $3.9 million for the EJAF, thanks in part to an auction that saw a signed Tony Bennett painting go for $100,000 and a photo of Elton from the iconoclast David LaChapelle fetch $87,000.

While Sheryl Crow was the musical guest for the fall 2018 gala, Elton couldn't help but open his comments by paying homage to last year's musical performer, Aretha Franklin.

"We witnessed the final performance of the Queen of Soul," John said. "You don't see greatness like that often."

Telling the room he wept during her soul-stirring performance last year at St. John the Divine ("Bridge Over Troubled Water" in particular was a cathartic highlight of Franklin's final public performance), John was clearly still reeling from the loss, but grateful Franklin gave some of her last moments to his cause.

"It was clear she was unwell," John recalled, "But she smiled her sweet smile and said, 'I didn't want to let you down. I was supposed to play the year before, and I didn't want to let you down.'

"Cherish those artists – they don't come along very often," he urged the crowd.

He also exhorted the audience – which host Gayle King pointed out was made up of white, black, straight, gay, transgender, Democratic and Republican people all committed to ending HIV/AIDS – to cherish each other more readily. "We need to start hugging each other more or there's gonna be trouble," John said. Elton's comments followed an invigorating speech from Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, who seamlessly melded personal anecdotes with historical fact and political proselytizing. Urging activists and philanthropists to put themselves in uncomfortable situations and closer proximity to those in need versus doling out donations from an ivory tower, Stevenson's speech was a refreshingly spirited challenge more than a collective pat on the back.

When Sheryl Crow took the stage to run through her roster of irresistible hits, she was clearly in high spirits, all smiles as she and her band ripped through "If It Makes You Happy," "Soak Up the Sun," "Everyday Is a Winding Road" and a new song called "Wouldn't Want to Be Like You" about "someone who can't tell the truth," which she insisted with a wink was "not about anyone in particular." Even if midterm election anxiety was nipping at the heels of the evening – and Crow nodded to it by saying that "love and facts do matter" – she still kept the mood jovial, even joking about her love life. "I've been engaged three times," she said. "I had a great time not getting married. I had an even better time not getting divorced."

Elton John is currently in the midst of his rapturously received Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. The Elton John AIDS Foundation is in its 26th year. This year saw Patricia Hearst, Joe McMillan and Darren Walker honored for their commitment to EJAF.
