Local Choir’s Version Of ‘Music’ Gets Tick Of Approval From Madonna, Sharing It With 19.8M Followers

Madonna has made a country choir’s dreams come true, sharing their video performing one of her hits with her 19.8 million followers on Instagram.

The choir from Northampton in the middle of the UK had sung their own version of Madonna’s 2000 hit Music and shared it on social media – where the BBC reports it was spotted by the pop superstar and re-posted it on her own Instagram Stories.

The Northants Sings Out choir had previously appeared on the UK’s Britain’s Got Talent, but the choirmaster Gareth Fuller told the BBC receiving this tick of approval from Madonna was “just unreal.”

Their version of Music was part of a montage which included the hymn All is Well and also Show Me Love by Robin S. So far, the BBC reports that 280,000 viewers have watched the clip on YouTube, but this number will no doubt rocket as a result of Madonna’s endorsement.

A fortnight ago, Madonna brought her Celebrations tour to a triumphant close with a free concert on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, in front of a reported 1.6million fans.

It was the final night of her retrospective tour, marking her four decades in pop, which she has been taking around the world since last October.

AP News reported that she began the show telling the crowd: “Here we are in the most beautiful place in the world. This place is magic.”
