Video: Mayor and police chief get in tune for Comic Relief
A POLICE chief and the Mayor of High Wycombe could be seen dancing and singing in Eden today to raise money for Comic Relief.
Stepping outside their comfort zone Mayor Chauhdry Shafique and Wycombe Area Commander, Supt Gilbert Houalla and High Wycombe Inspector Nino Brancato sang with the Rock Choir.
Cllr Shafique took to the microphone first, dressed in his Mayoral regalia, and sang You're The Voice.
He said afterwards: "I did have a sense of trepidation before but once I got going it seemed to be ok.
"As a Mayor we do these things for the sake of a good cause. Comic Relief is a very good cause. I was happy to join in on this occasion."
About 80 members from Rock Choir groups in High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross and Chiswick, sang in the Eden Centre outside Starbucks.
Supt Houalla and Insp Brancato joined in for the second group of songs, and although tried to blend in with the choir initially were persuaded to the front, where they danced and clapped to Ain't No Mountain High Enough.
Supt Houalla joked: "Britain need no longer look for Britain's Got Talent. I think we have found it."
Choir leader Katy Seath said singing in front of an audience is nerve racking if you are not used to it.
She said: "This year's theme for Comic Relief is daring someone so I wrote to the Mayor. I said would you like to come and be a soloist- a coveted role in Rock Choir."
All money collected on the day will go to Comic Relief.
Rock Choir is an amateur contemporary choir and has more than 200 choirs across the UK.
