This is the second year in a row that Connie has featured as a guest in this series.
Connie has just returned from her amazing 3 week tour of south east Asia, promoting her new album Beautiful World, so she will have a couple of weeks rest before she starts into this UK tour.
Young Voices, now in its 16th year, provides a unique opportunity for thousands of children to participate in a large arena concert.
You can find more details about the Young Voices initiative here http://www.youngvoices.co.uk/
Being present at a Young Voices concert is an unforgettable experience - and it's loud! (If you don't believe us, scroll down now to watch the video below.)
Most of the tickets are sold to parents and friends of the children in the choirs, but usually there are a few tickets left over for sale to the public. Check with the individual venues for availability.

Young Voices make their own professionally produced DVDs of the events for sale, so naturally they discourage people from recording the concerts. This means that a lot of the videos of YV on YouTube are rather shaky and distant, using hand-held phones etc.
However, last year a member of Connie's team, Daniel Smart, was allowed to film one of Connie's performances using a tripod-held HD camera at the LG Arena, Birmingham, England. Connie Talbot sings "Run" by Snow Patrol, a song that means a lot to her, and which she performed with the backing of thousands of young singers.
