Maldon's young singers have been praised by a successful boyband.

Members of the children’s choir, Maldon’s Little Sing, were astonished when a video of their performance of Love to Love grabbed the attention of those who sung it originally.

Boy band Damage, a successful R&B band who achieved success in the 90s with 11 hit singles, were impressed with the youngsters’ recreation of Love to Love, which was posted on YouTube.

A member of the boyband, who reformed this year for documentary The Big Reunion, tweeted the choir’s founder Gemma Francis: "We are so honoured that The BIG Sing children's choir chose to sing Love to Love."
