Spokesman Pete Flatt said: “Sing Your Heart Out 2017 is the latest collection of massive pop hits that just HAVE to be sung out loud: whether its crooning in the car, singing in the shower or being melodic in the mirror, Singing Your Heart Out has become one of the nation’s favourite past-times.
“Release Your Inner Star!
“This year sees the launch of Sing Your Heart Out Week. Commencing March 20th 2017 it’s a chance to get the nation singing wherever – and whoever - they are: parents and kids on the school run, sports teams, working guys and girls, silver surfers, city slickers and CEOs.”
Sing Your Heart Out Week’s ambassador is leading vocal coach and TV personality Carrie Grant. Carrie has coached some of the biggest stars including Take That, Spice Girls and Will Young.
Carrie said: “Singing is a great way of releasing stress-busting hormones into the body’s natural mix which has the dual benefit of relaxing the heart-rate and creating a sense of joy and well-being. I’d like Sing Your Heart Out Week to mobilise everyone who hasn’t sung to give it a try, just for a minute, in private or in the car or wherever and see how good it makes you feel.”
Pete added: “The album itself contains 40 tracks of which 20 are No.1 hits. There’s an exclusive from Katy Perry feat. Skip Marley ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ (which makes its first appearance on a compilation) alongside recent smashes from Shawn Mendez ‘Treat You Better’ and Clean Bandit ‘Rockabye’, together with classics including Take That ‘Shine’, Lady Gaga ‘Poker Face’ and Robbie Williams ‘Angels’ (full track list below).
“Upload Your Sensational Singing for Sing Your Heart Out Week
“From March 23rd please visit www.singyourheartout.co.uk and upload a video of yourself singing Katy Perry’s ‘Chained to the Rhythm’. The best entries will be edited to create a virtual choir!
“Heart rates can ‘sync’ up during group singing, which may help explain the meditative / therapeutic feeling of singing with others. Parents singing to children can help with language skills. Mental health benefits: Singing combats sadness, anxiety and depression. And in the long term, it’s been tied to increased life expectancy and improved coping with chronic pain (source: Mic.com 2016). Oxytocin and endorphin levels increase with singing.”
