Amore to perform at BFF Ball

June 21, 2012

Exciting young operatic quartet Amore will be performing at this year’s British Forces Foundation Summer Ball.

They have taken up the baton from Russell Watson who was due sing at the event but,  regretfully, had to pull out because of US television contractual demands.

Amore – whose big break came after a chance meeting in Starbucks – released their stunning debut album Stand Together in spring and will perform two number’s at The BFF’s glamorous black tie affair at the Dorchester Hotel on the evening of Thursday July 5th.

Guests will be wined and dined and entertained as they mix with the star-studded celebrity guestlist. There are a limited number of tickets still available.

“This is your chance to send a very powerful message of support to British servicemen and women on Operations all over the world and join us for an unforgettable evening,” said BFF Director Mark Cann.

The event has become a permanent fixture of the London social calendar over the past 12 years, attracting many famous supporters turning out to celebrate and raise money for Britain’s Armed Forces. The evening will begin with a champagne reception on arrival before moving in to The Ballroom for a sumptuous three-course meal.

There will be live entertainment throughout the evening and in addition to the performance by Amore there will also be music from The Band of the Royal Yeomanry. Comedy will be courtsey of Royal Variety Performance smash hit The Boy with Tape on his Face and the all-important auction will be taken by everybody’s favourite King of the Jungle Christopher Biggins.

The best thing about attending this unforgettable evening is knowing that your support will help send a very powerful message to servicemen and women on operations all over the world.
