In October 2006 an unlikely news story hit the headlines. It was announced that Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir had signed to Universal Music Group.

The choir signed the deal after being spotted at a wedding by Daniel Glatman, manager of boy band Blue. "When I first saw them they were absolutely fantastic," he said. "They just blew me away and I realised we just had to capture that passion and the amazing sound in a recording studio."

The film has a working title of The Choir.
