    Thank you for the thread!
    I posted the video in two of the missing persons threads (Charles Horvath & Claudia Lawrence). But it was such a moving performance. I hope they do well on the show.

    Missing People Choir dad admits Britain's Got Talent is his 'ultimate chance' to speak about his lost son

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/missing-people-choir-dad-admits-10240831
    Peter Boxell son's mysterious disappearance inspired him to write the song I Miss You to help raise awareness

    A father in the Missing People Choir has admitted that Britain’s Got Talent is his "ultimate chance" to speak about his lost son.
    Peter Boxell has lived with the agony of not knowing what happened to his football-mad son Lee, who vanished without a trace aged 15.
    Britain's Got Talent viewers got a taste of his pain in Saturday's tear-jerking audition , when his song I Miss You was performed for the judges with images of the group's long lost relatives appearing on the big screen behind them.

    Peter, 70, has not seen Lee since September 1988, when he disappeared in Sutton, South London, after a football match.
    Opening up on Good Morning Britain, he said: "Yes I wrote some lyrics and they're really heartfelt.
    "They tell how I feel about my dear son who has been missing since 1988 when he was only 15.
    "I enjoy singing those because it gives me the opportunity to express my feelings and my emotions.

    The families are hoping that the exposure will help them find new leads into the disappearances of their loved ones and many others.
    "It makes me feel really good to sing about my son and get our message across to the viewers," added Peter.
    "It's been really hard work but it will be wonderful if just one missing person is found as a result of this."

    I am only able to watch the seasons on Youtube - which BGT has put up every year as the contest goes through. They usually have a clip from the weekly auditions out on the Monday after the weekends airing on TV.

    This is what the internet said about this years contest:

    http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/britai...s-tickets-judges-everything-you-need-to-know/
    Series 11 (yes, Eleven), will commence on Saturday, April 15 at 8pm on ITV, so that's Easter Weekend!
    If it follows the traditional pattern of BGT series, there will be seven audition episodes every Saturday, followed by a week of live semi-finals and a live grand final in late May/early June.
    -----
    ITV has kept rather quiet in the teasers thus far, but we do know that the judges were moved to tears from The Missing People Choir, made up of volunteers and people with
    missing family members – and they performed a poignant song called 'I Miss You' written by member Peter Boxell about his son Lee, who was just 15 when he went missing in 1988.

    Listen to this version of 'I Miss You' on the Missing People Youtube Channel... oh my goodness :bawling:

    Congratulations to the Missing People Choir.
    @Kimster - I hope they tour, and possibly join up with some other choirs or singers to bring this wonderful message and performance around the world.
