It was a short course, but we got a lot done! After our amazing BPE/C flashmob performance at East Side Music Days we sang again at the Berlin Pop Choir and Ensemble autumn performance on September 8. at our home at Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke
The dress code was ‘BLUE AND GOLD,‘ and everyone made an effort thinking autumn glow and beautiful clear blue skies. Lyndsey started the night with an Amy Winehouse cover and lots of people stayed for the aftershow karaoke.

On August 28. the Berlin Pop Choir’s sister chorus – the Berlin Pop Ensemble – performed at the East Side Music Days street music festival and the Berlin Pop Choir showed up and flashmobbed the performance! The two choirs formed a mighty harmony when they sang the Spice Girls’ ‘Viva Forever’ by the river Spree.

We did it again! On May 19th we learned and recorded a song all is one night. It was Tiffany’s classic ‘I think we’re alone now’ and Tiffany herself gave her approval when she tweeted the video saying ‘Cool! keep singing.’ We love you Tiffany, and we might even sing your song again at the Berlin Pop Choir and Ensemble summer performance on June 16th.
The choir wore silver and blue and sang songs by Giorgio Moroder and Phil Oakey, The Smiths and our choir picks of 2014: by Miley Cyrus and Lorde. Videos are now on youtube.
We were totally excited to be asked to sing on the Voice of Germany live TV finale for the second time. Once again we sang back-up for a Rea Garvey mentor/finalist duet. In 2012 we joined Rea and Nick Howard onstage to sing ‘One day like this.’ This time we sang the beautiful song ‘Hurt’ with Rea and finalist Lina Arndt. When the votes were counted, Lina was the runner up. Congratulations Lina!
The Voice of Germany live TV final was broadcast on Friday December 12 at 20:15 on ProSieben and Sat.1
