Each of the finalists did tremendously well, receiving plenty of text votes for their renditions of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, recorded in the professional studio of Independent Music Productions in Canterbury.

Karen Brinkman from the KM charity team’s Walk to School project said: “All of the choirs made a fantastic effort. Featherby sang tunefully and with great enthusiasm and won the public vote.”

Catherine Wilson from IMP said: “We were all hugely impressed by the talent displayed by all of the finalists. Congratulations to Featherby – they should be extremely proud of their achievement.

“IMP are proud to be able to offer the recording facilities for the KM Walk to School Song Contest as we love being able to give children the opportunity to experience what their pop star idols encounter day-to-day. We always find the children absolutely delightful to work with and are constantly amazed by the amount of talent displayed at such a young age.”
