2016 celebrates the 10 year anniversary of Urban Voices Collective. The distinctive style and outstanding vocals of this London based collective have granted them countless performances with artists as diverse as Take That, Rita Ora, George Michael and Muse to Sigma, Tim Rice, The Who and The Kaiser Chiefs.

Urban Voices Collective cemented their place on the music scene in 2012, when they performed in front of an estimated worldwide television audience of 750 million viewers at The London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony. Since then they have been privileged to perform at The BBC Proms with Paloma Faith, opening The BAFTAS and singing the Official Anthem at the opening of the first Invictus Games in 2014.

Founded by Karl Willett in 2006, the collective is made up of singers from a variety of musical backgrounds, bringing together some of the strongest and most adaptable vocal talent in London. With extensive experience in both live and studio settings, Urban Voices Collective's credits include collaborations with the London Symphony Orchestra, recording with acclaimed producer and composer David Arnold, backing vocals for Paloma Faith’s album ‘Fall To Grace’ and their own gospel arrangement of the national anthem for the Queen and the Royal Family at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games 2012. Other projects include recording with Coldplay for the 2012 Paralympic Games, a UK tour with Diversity in 2015 and performing on the Fashion Theatre main stage to a total of 100,000 people at The Clothes Show 2015.


Whether headlining at a renowned venue, backing some of the world’s biggest artists, or performing at an intimate wedding,
Urban Voices Collective always deliver a performance to remember with their infectious energy, outstanding vocals and
strong imaginative creative direction.

With years of experience in all performance situations, whether you are looking for a live TV performance, arena, stadium or small outdoors event Urban Voices Collective can cater for all your needs.

Urban Voices Collective go straight to the heart. It’s a constant joy to work with them,
they sound like I dream a choir should sound.'
David Arnold, Grammy Award Winning Composer & Producer

'A massive thank you UVC. You were all so lovely and I really enjoyed working with your team. Having all the delegates on their feet at the end was fantastic and with a tear in their eyes, this was our aim and we did it... Thank You!! We look forward to working with you again in the future'.
