Classical Brit Award winning choir Only Men Aloud are looking to recruit more members to the ranks of the successful Only Boys Aloud initiative.

Only Boys Aloud performed live for the first time only six weeks ago at the opening night of the Blaenau Gwent National Eisteddfod. Since then they have made numerous TV and concert appearances, including a BBC documentary, and a role in the forthcoming Ryder Cup 2010 Welcome to Wales concert at the Millennium Stadium with Shirley Bassey and Catherine Zeta Jones.

Now mentors Only Men Aloud are looking for more boys to join the choir for the future. Musical Director Tim Rhys Evans said: "It's been a fantastic summer for the boys, but this is just the start. We want to bring in many more young men from the Valleys to be part of this wonderful initiative, and hopefully, now they've seen how exciting it is to be part of Only Boys Aloud they'll be eager to get involved."

The project is part of The Valleys Heart and Soul campaign, a three-year campaign which aims to raise awareness of the region as a tourist destination and bring long-term economic benefit to the area. This project is part of a wider £42 million investment to regenerate the Valleys and highlight the vast amount of activities and attractions on offer for its residents and visitors.

The choirs are being mentored by experienced members of Only Men Aloud, teaching singing skills as well as life skills to help build aspirations for the future.
