We opened the 2019 show with the brilliant Kerry Ellis singing a new version of Rise Like A Phoenix.  With beautiful Ballroom Dancers and our full compliment of 111 countries all choreographed by our Stage Director, Donna Derby.  Donna had the great idea to open the show this way this year and it was a fabulous contrast to the normal up tempo heavy beat style that we have done!

Miss World 2019 - World In Union.

We had ten really interesting singers this year - very diverse also - so instead of booking a star turn to sing the lead vocal we decided to use our own talent! 

They did a magnificent job!
