The Military Wives are celebrating their one-year anniversary since appearing on the BBC Two show The Choir: Military Wives with Gareth Malone - and look set to infiltrate the UK Top Ten with new album Stronger Together.

In the last 12 months, The Military Wives collective has expanded from 100 to 760 members and racked up numerous accolades during this time.

They broke the record for biggest-ever music video shoot for album title track Stronger Together, were nominated for a BRIT Award and won the Classic BRIT for Single of the Year and had three No.1s with debut single Wherever You Are, debut album In My Dreams and Jubilee anthem Sing with Gary Barlow.

Now, one year to the day since forming, they look set to return to the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums Chart with their brand new LP released through Decca Records.

Faye Kennedy from Military Wives Choir Warminster commented: “I can’t believe the journey we’ve had during in the past year. It’s been one of the most incredible times of my life. I’ve met some fantastic people during this journey who have helped to keep me to stay strong through the tough times.

“We’re all going through the same feelings and emotions, and it’s amazing to be a part of something so special. The success that we’ve gained is an added bonus that we never would have dreamt of.”

The new album Stronger Together out now. The Military Wives will perform at The Festival of Remembrance with former X Factor contestant and soldier Jonjo Kerr on November 10.
