Born to Sing is not just a choir, it’s a wonderful community of caring people. The choirs rehearse in Bicton, Guildford, Joondalup and Rockingham. The choirs (200 singers in total with an age range of between 12 & 90) welcome all non-singers, shower singers, park singers, car singers, air guitar singers and actual singers. The choirs sing songs from the heart that make you feel good, raise self-esteem and help you lose the blues. Singing helps you leave work behind and add quality to your week! 

Since its inception in 2008, Born to Sing has raised over $225,000 to donate to various charitable causes such as survivors of bushfires, Cancer Council Relay For Life, Fiona Stanley Clinical Cancer Trials, the Brightwater Care Group, Red Cross Blood Bank, Mission Australia and Variety – the Children’s Charity. The choir’s repertoire includes gospel, 60’s & 70’s, uplifting songs and short classical pieces. Songs include: Africa, All You Need Is Love, Beyond The Sea, Bohemian Rhapsody, Dancing Queen, Delilah, I Am Australia, I Still Call Australia Home,  Imagine, Unchained Melody, We Are The Champions and You Raise Me Up. Choir members have access to vocal guide tracks which makes it easier to learn the choir’s repertoire.

Born to Sing  performs each year in The Perth Fringe Festival, for the Australian Army Nurses, Guildford Songfest, Dunsborough Songfest and has also performed in Carols By Candlelight with the Variety Youth Choir at Langley Park to an audience of over 20,000. In 2018, we performed four sell out concerts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
