A choir leader who has worked with Take That and on many television shows led a singing session with elderly residents.

Dan Cooper has been a coach on shows including BBC’s Little Mix The Search, but he spent the day teaching people at Hugh Myddelton House care home in Southgate how to sing Mamma Mia by Abba.

In partnership with singing teaching app Choral Hub, Mr Cooper delivers virtual singing events through its platform, the Come Sing! Club.

He said: “I have the best job in the world. I am never happier than when I am teaching people to sing and seeing how happy it makes them. 

“It was an absolute privilege to spend time with the Barchester residents and teach them such an iconic song.”
