VIDEO: Girl’s performance for the Queen is cut short as someone very special enters the stage

When fathers serve in the military to protect their nation, they know they will not see their family and friends for a long time.

If they are asked, they will unanimously agree that the life of a military family is never simple. It is challenging for them to be apart for extended periods of time because of the nagging fear that the next time they see each other may be their last opportunity to do so.

Decca Records wanted to do something to show their appreciation for the sacrifices made by the families of service members in the armed forces.

Decca Records conducted a search for musical talent among the families of service members in the United Kingdom. Children who were eligible to join the talent hunt were those who had a parent or sibling who was serving either in the United Kingdom or abroad. They started with more than a thousand people who wanted the job and narrowed the pool down to sixty. Eleven individuals were successful at the live auditions and advanced to the finals.

An exhaustive search was conducted in order to establish The Poppy Girls, and five young women emerged victorious.

Megan Adams (10), Bethany Davey (15), Charlotte Mellor (17), Alice Milburn (13), and Florence Ransom make up the Poppy Girls (10). Every single one of them has a parent who served in the armed forces.

Before entering the talent competition, Megan had been singing for about a year. Her father, Lieutenant Commander William Adams, was stationed for a period of six months at the base that was located in the Indian Ocean.

Bethany said that she has «always been too bashful to sing in front of relatives,» much less an audience.

Prior to serving in the 9th/12th Royal Lancers and the 151 (London) Transport Regiment, Royal Logistics Corps, her father, Lance Corporal Dean Davey, had been in the military.

Charlotte is just 17, but she has already lived in eight different locations around the country.

And the reason for it is that her dad, Wing Commander Paul Mellor, spent his whole career in the RAF, stationed in various locations. In the end, she attended a boarding school in Cambridge, where her life became steadier and more grounded.

Alice has always had a good ear for music. She said that she had been singing ever since she could remember, which was before she could even speak.

She was very skilled at playing the piano and the ukulele. Both of her parents served their country in the armed forces; her father, Captain Philip Milburn, served in the Royal Navy, while her mother spent eight years in the Royal Air Force.

Florence began her musical career when she was only four years old.

Her mom was a member of the Military Wives choir, and she continued her mother’s footsteps by becoming a member of the choir herself. Her dad, Lieutenant Ben Ransom, is also a member of the Royal Navy.

For The Poppy Girls’ first hit, «The Call ,» an American singer-songwriter by the name of Regina Spektor was responsible for writing the song.

During the Festival of Remembrance hosted by the Royal British Legion, they gave their very first performance of the song. The premiere of «The Poppy Girls» was attended by a number of notable people, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

«This is a beautiful and haunting song sung by girls who understand what it is to have family members consistently in serious trouble,» Charles Byrne, head of fundraising at the Royal British Legion, told The Telegraph.

The singing group and the song were both produced by Decca Records as a method of expressing gratitude to the many service members and veterans who had given up their lives and their families for their nation.

They hoped that the song would bring in eighty million pounds for the Royal British Legion.

The Royal British Legion is a charitable organization that was established in the United Kingdom in 1921. They provide financial, social, and moral support for the men and women who have served in the British Army and Royal Air Force, as well as for their families.

Remembrance Sunday is an annual event that takes place on the second Sunday of November and is dedicated to remembering the conclusion of World War One.

On this day, activities such as marching bands, parades, church services, and the laying of wreaths and poppies will take place, and in the evening, the Festival of Remembrance will take place. On this particular day, at eleven in the morning, everyone stops what they’re doing and becomes silent in remembrance of fallen combat heroes.

The performance that The Poppy Girls gave at the Festival of Remembrance moved the Legion, and as a result, they wanted to do something to show their appreciation for them.
