A Britain’s Got Talent star has launched a new choir in Huddersfield.

Helen Garnett shot to fame after performing Jess Glynn’s Take me Home with her three daughters in the 2016 semi final.

Now she wants more people to start singing through her weekly group All For One every Wednesday at 7.30pm in the Boiler Room Theatre at Huddersfield New College.

She has arranged the music for the all abilities classes, which will be run by her colleague and Barnsley youth choir head Wil Jones.

Helen said: “I spent a lot of time visiting Huddersfield after my sister settled here during her years at Huddersfield University.

“I also brought my gospel choir here to sing with The Charity Dream Girls at Huddersfield Town Hall along with Heather Small of M People in 2014.

“I grew to love the town and felt it would be wonderful to offer the people of Huddersfield the opportunity to join one of my growing family of choirs.”

New starters can book a free taster session.

They will have the chance to perform this Christmas with The Garnett Family and this year’s Britain’s Got Talent finalist Wayne Woodward.

Full year membership costs £270 for new starters.
