It was such a cold and rainy evening, which threatened to keep the crowds away, but instead they came out in their numbers to enjoy the entertainment provided by the Motcomb street association
The audience gathered were treated to a local Jazz band and a military brass band in the earlier part of the evening, as well as the Christmas lights being switched on by well known celebrity Christopher Biggins
With the cold and rain coming in, it looked like IDMC would be singing to the shop fronts, but as they announced the choir our friends and fans came out from where they were sheltering from the rain with their brollies in hand, and braved the cold for a 30 minute set in the cold.
It was a lovely time, with John and the crew going through seasonal hits, gospel classics as well as inspirational songs, that had the crowd singing and dancing in the rain…
Loved every minute…
Well it was a cold Tuesday 6th December and IDMC swapped their usual venue of “The Premise studios” for the lush surroundings of “The Cafe Rouge” in the West End.
The group were celebrating the end of another year, giving thanks for the many miles we’ve travelled and the hundreds of lives we’ve touched with our gift of music and song.
With all the personalities within the choir you can imagine the level of jokes and laughter we share for the whole evening.
Sometimes I really worry about the guys around me, and I’m praying for all of you guys…lol!!!
Since the “Rebirth project” in March, the team has worked hard to develop and to keep the IDMC standard as high as in previous vocal years, and even to step up to another level.
2012 looks great for the group as we get ready for the choirs 18th anniversary, so please watch this space…
John and IDMC will be headlining the performances at the annual switching on of the Christmas lights in Motcombe Street Belgravia, just down the road from Knightsbridge.
This will be the second year IDMC have supported this event which always promises to be lots of fun.
The event starts at 6:00pm with a Jazz band, Household Cavalry and IDMC taking the stage at 7:30pm, with Celebrity Christopher Biggins switching on the lights, so don’t be late..let’s hope the weather holds.
Singing carols, gospel and inspirational song, it promises to be a great evening

John and the IDMC spent the weekend of the 26th November singing Christmas joy to the shoppers of the East Midlands designer outlet, just of Junction 28 off the M1.
It was a lovely time, sponsored by Capital FM.
John, Maulin, Rhoda F, Rhoda M, Courtney and Beatrice sang a combination of carols given the IDMC touch, inspirational songs and chart topping songs from Adele, and Bruno Mars.
The days lasted from 11:00am – 3:00pm, with some great foods courtesy of the centre, our favourite being Bratwurst Sausages, with onions in a roll with mustard and ketchup.
The clients were really happy about the atmosphere created by IDMC for the hundreds of shoppers who passed by dancing with their children.
