They played this song and I cried so hard! This song is perfect. And every single time I tell myself I’m not going to cry and every single time I cry so much!
It is the meaning, the concept, the art behind five young women singing to their country and her majesty, to share the feelings and dedication to our armed forces, and to show those who oppose us, just how proud we are of our men and women who have fallen under our flag! Don’t forget, they will live on in memory and in us.
These girls were certainly blessed with talent, but it’s what happens AFTER the performance that is truly worth watching. Just wait — it’s so sweet! Live performance of The Poppy Girls new charity single sung live at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance on 9 November 2013.
There is a lovely surprise just after they finish. The Poppy Girls are (L to R) Bethany, Megan, Charlotte, Florence and Alice — and all have fathers currently serving in the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.
The Poppy Girls is a British pop band consisting of five school-age girls from Armed Forces families. The band was first formed in 2013 with the intent to raise money for The Royal British Legion, and the members were selected from a pool of 1000 performers.
Their debut single The Call (No Need to Say Goodbye) debuted at number 13 on the UK Singles Chart and was written by Regina Spektor. The full album, No Need To Say Goodbye, entered the UK Album Chart at number 62 in its first week. In November 2013 the group performed in front of Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister David Cameron at the Festival of Remembrance.
