CHILDREN from Overton Primary School sang with the stars at a concert for thousands of school pupils.
Thirty pupils from the school travelled to the O2 in London, where they performed songs with children from other schools from across the country.
Young Voices is the largest school choir organiser in the world and arranges more than 14 concerts a year in the UK and Ireland.
Each year, the family-run business brings more than 2,500 schools, 90,000 children and 6,000 teachers together to enjoy music and celebrate singing.
The pupils performed with Stacey Solomon, of X Factor fame, and gospel singer Wayne Ellington.
Mel Stewart, a class teacher at Overton Primary School, said: “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, amazing opportunity.”
Thirty children from Year 5 and 6 performed at the event.
