Only Boys Aloud sing RESOLUTION SONG
1 month ago
Only Boys Aloud was founded in May 2010 by Tim Rhys-Evans. Rhys-Evans, who founded Only Men Aloud in 2000, brought 144 boys onstage to sing with Only Men Aloud at the opening of the National Eisteddfod in Ebbw Vale in 2010. According to Rhys-Evans, he intended to use this one-time event to gauge the level of interest in a Welsh boys’ choir. The event led to the formation of an organization, the Aloud Charity, which funds Only Boys Aloud.
Rhys-Evans “‘noticed choirs were getting older and older, which went hand in hand with a breakdown in the traditional sense of community in South Wales'”, and he desired to “‘inject some new blood into the Welsh tradition of choir singing'”. According to Rhys-Evans, he also wanted to help boys in economically depressed areas of Wales: “‘Choral singing is a stronghold of the Valleys and I wanted to use it as a way of getting teenage boys doing something positive'”. The choir gained publicity when they auditioned for the ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent.
