Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding singers have secured a massive £1million deal to re-record Coca-Cola’s iconic Christmas anthem.
The Kingdom Choir, a local community group from South London, were cast into the limelight when they performed a stunning rendition of Stand By Me at the Royal Wedding back in May, which was watched by two billion people around the world.
After being noticed by Coca-Cola, the choir have been asked to star in this year’s festive ad, and re-record the ultimate festive tune ‘Wonderful Dream (Holidays Are Coming)’.
This is the first time the song will be re-recorded in over a decade, and the new commercial will debut across 16 European countries with a £50million budget later this month.
An insider told The Sun: “This is an incredible deal for the choir, whose lives have been transformed after Prince Harry and Meghan chose them to sing Stand By Me at their wedding.”
“The money is something they could never have dreamed of just a few months ago. But they can use this to really try and launch their career.”
The Kingdom Choir are also set to release their debut album, Stand By Me, later this month after being signed by Sony Music.
They have also been booked to perform at the Invictus Games in Sydney on October 29, where they will be reunited with Harry and Meghan for the first time since their wedding day.
The 20-strong Christian group was formed by conductor Karen Gibson in 1994.
