The Hottest Act In Music: A 60 Year Old Welsh Male Choir
Suddenly, a North Wales male choir -- drawn from the ranks of coal miners -- is the hottest act around. The manager of a boy band spotted them at a choir, signed them and now they've got an album coming out with Universal and a movie producer has optioned their story for a proposed film. Their album, Voices of the Valley, comes out in the UK November 20, coincidentally the same day that a new album from boy band Take That is released. A massively successful band that spun off Robbie Williams, Take That was one of the biggest tours of the year.
