0:00:280:00:30

Thanks, Hacker. What am I talking about?

0:00:330:00:36

-Singing.

-CHEERING

0:00:360:00:38

We're here in sunny Gateshead in the north-east

0:00:430:00:46

just across the bridge from Newcastle.

0:00:460:00:49

Today's Songs Of Praise is a very special all-singing edition,

0:00:490:00:53

with lots of songs and hymns familiar to anyone and everyone.

0:00:530:00:58

New to Songs Of Praise, we have a CBBC favourite, Hacker T Dog,

0:00:580:01:03

interrogating a priest.

0:01:030:01:06

The cheek of that dog.

0:01:060:01:08

And out there, among you,

0:01:080:01:11

is our very own Junior Songs Of Praise roving reporter.

0:01:110:01:15

-Welcome, the lovely Hayley Hassall.

-Yes, hello, David, and thank you.

0:01:150:01:20

I am down here in the crowd,

0:01:200:01:22

surrounded by some very excited children

0:01:220:01:24

who've come from all over the place to do just one thing today

0:01:240:01:27

and that is to sing.

0:01:270:01:30

And here we have Abby and Olivia.

0:01:300:01:32

Can you tell me what it is that you love to sing?

0:01:320:01:34

Why do you love singing?

0:01:340:01:36

I love singing because the conductors are very funny.

0:01:360:01:40

And what is it you love about it?

0:01:400:01:41

I like the high notes and the low notes.

0:01:410:01:43

Yeah, all the variation you get to do.

0:01:430:01:45

And out of all the songs you get to sing,

0:01:450:01:47

what would you say your favourite would be?

0:01:470:01:49

-This Little Light Of Mine.

-Yours too?

0:01:490:01:51

Yep.

0:01:510:01:52

Do you think, just for us, you could give us a bit of a rendition,

0:01:520:01:56

just so everyone at home can get grooving with you?

0:01:560:01:58

Yeah? Go on, then. After one, two, three, four...

0:01:580:02:01

# This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine

0:02:010:02:05

# Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. #

0:02:050:02:11

-Wow! That was...

-APPLAUSE

0:02:110:02:13

That was beautiful.

0:02:130:02:15

Well done, girls. So beautiful, it was absolutely lovely.

0:02:150:02:18

-Back to you, David.

-Thank you, Hayley.

0:02:180:02:20

We're going to be hearing more from her later in the programme.

0:02:200:02:23

Now, we've got lots of singing coming up,

0:02:230:02:25

but we begin this special Songs Of Praise

0:02:250:02:28

with an all-winners performance

0:02:280:02:31

because we have the winners of the first ever Gospel Choir Of The Year competition.

0:02:310:02:36

From Birmingham, the Town Hall Choir.

0:02:360:02:39

APPLAUSE

0:02:390:02:41

And, joining them on stage to sing O Happy Day, we have,

0:02:420:02:46

wait for it...

0:02:460:02:48

the winner of The Voice, Jermain Jackman!

0:02:480:02:52

APPLAUSE

0:02:520:02:55

Hey, everyone. How you all doing?

0:02:580:03:01

CHEERING

0:03:010:03:03

Good, good. Good, good.

0:03:030:03:04

-# Happy day...

-O happy day

0:05:540:05:58

-# O happy day

-O happy day

0:06:060:06:15

CHEERING

0:06:150:06:18

Congratulations on winning The Voice, Jermain.

0:06:230:06:26

Now, what has happened since you won? Has it changed your life?

0:06:260:06:30

It's changed the life around me. So many doors have opened,

0:06:300:06:33

not only for me but for so many other young, talented people in the UK

0:06:330:06:37

wanting to pursue a dream and wanting to aim high.

0:06:370:06:41

They see my aims and they see my aspirations

0:06:410:06:43

and they are inspired by that.

0:06:430:06:45

I've come across so many young people saying that I have inspired them,

0:06:450:06:48

so it's such a blessing to be able to do that

0:06:480:06:50

and so humbling to know that there's so many supporters

0:06:500:06:53

UK-wide supporting me, and around the world as well.

0:06:530:06:58

Now, you're a man on a mission.

0:06:580:07:01

You want to be the first black Prime Minister, but you're a singer.

0:07:010:07:06

How do you tie the two in together?

0:07:060:07:09

It's very difficult, but I have a passion for both.

0:07:090:07:12

Obviously, growing up

0:07:120:07:13

in East London, I'm very socially aware of my surroundings

0:07:130:07:18

and it's about connecting that social awareness

0:07:180:07:21

with political knowledge and my music and I'm just mixing it all together.

0:07:210:07:25

That's what makes Jermain Jackman.

0:07:250:07:27

You've been very open, also, about your Christian faith.

0:07:270:07:31

How do you see your faith tying in to your aspirations?

0:07:310:07:35

Well, the fact that I know I want to be...

0:07:350:07:38

I wouldn't have won The Voice if it wasn't for God

0:07:380:07:41

and he's never let go of me.

0:07:410:07:43

I'm here today to say that I'm thankful for that.

0:07:430:07:46

Now, listen, I've got to ask you this.

0:07:460:07:48

A lot of young people, including a lot of people here,

0:07:480:07:51

they've seen you begin to fulfil your dream.

0:07:510:07:55

If you could say anything to them

0:07:550:07:57

about fulfilling their own dreams, what would you say?

0:07:570:08:01

Just work hard at it, continue, be committed and be determined.

0:08:010:08:05

No aim, no ambition, no goal is too high, you can still achieve it.

0:08:050:08:09

No matter how young you are, no matter how old you are,

0:08:090:08:11

you can still achieve it.

0:08:110:08:13

-Ladies and gentlemen, Jermain Jackman!

-APPLAUSE

0:08:130:08:16

Thank you, Jermain.

0:08:190:08:20

He's going to be joining us later to sing again but for now,

0:08:200:08:24

we are going to join in an epic sing-along.

0:08:240:08:28

All of you will exercise your vocal cords, you at home, the choir,

0:08:280:08:32

the singers, as we join together and sing This Little Light Of Mine.

0:08:320:08:36

APPLAUSE

0:11:490:11:51

Still to come, see how Hacker T Dog gets on

0:11:510:11:54

when he goes to church to meet a famous priest.

0:11:540:11:57

Now, choirs have always played a huge part in Songs Of Praise

0:11:570:12:00

and it takes practice, determination and dedication to be the best.

0:12:000:12:06

On stage and providing us with precision,

0:12:060:12:09

accuracy and soul are the current holders of the title

0:12:090:12:12

Gospel Choir Of The Year, led by their director

0:12:120:12:16

and conductor, Colin Anderson, it's the Town Hall Gospel Choir.

0:12:160:12:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:15:290:15:32

Now, we've got Ruth and we've got Ella.

0:15:390:15:42

-Why do you girls love singing?

-Um, cos it's really fun.

0:15:420:15:46

And what about you, Ruth?

0:15:460:15:48

I love all the unique notes all joined together.

0:15:480:15:51

It is all different, isn't it?

0:15:510:15:52

And do you girls have a special song that you love?

0:15:520:15:55

Um, the Ellie... How Long Will I Love You? by Ellie Goulding.

0:15:550:15:58

I love that one, it's so beautiful.

0:15:580:16:00

Do you think that you girls could give me a bit of a tune from it?

0:16:000:16:02

Go on, off you go. When you're ready.

0:16:030:16:05

# How long will I love you?

0:16:060:16:09

# As long as stars are above you

0:16:090:16:13

# Longer if I can... #

0:16:150:16:17

That is gorgeous, girls. You're stars.

0:16:170:16:21

Absolutely beautiful, well done. Really, really gorgeous.

0:16:210:16:24

APPLAUSE

0:16:240:16:27

# Doo, doo, doo, doo

0:16:270:16:30

# Doo, doo, doo, doo

0:16:300:16:32

# Doo, doo, doo, doo

# Doo, doo, doo, doo-oo... #

0:16:450:16:48

APPLAUSE

0:18:180:18:21

What an amazing rendition of Lean On Me, there.

0:18:260:18:28

All the children had their part to play.

0:18:280:18:30

They were absolutely fantastic.

0:18:300:18:32

Even my friend Hacker T Dog from CBBC had his part,

0:18:320:18:35

didn't you, Hacker?

0:18:350:18:36

-What was that, Hayley?

-Lean On Me, Hacker, I said, Lean On Me.

0:18:360:18:39

-If you insist.

-No, no, no...

0:18:390:18:42

-I made a joke.

-I mean, what part are you playing in the song?

0:18:420:18:45

-Is it a tenor?

-A tenner? Ooh, no. I'm worth more than that, Hayley.

0:18:450:18:48

Is that all they're paying them to sing here today?

0:18:480:18:50

No, no. They're here to sing for Songs Of Praise in the north-east.

0:18:500:18:54

You do realise that you're on Songs Of Praise right now, don't you?

0:18:540:18:57

Am I? Oh!

0:18:570:18:58

Hello, dearly beloved... Hang on, I'm not in my Sunday best.

0:18:580:19:01

Should I pop my dog collar on?

0:19:010:19:04

-Another joke!

-I see what you did. Very good, very good.

-Yeah.

0:19:040:19:07

Actually, I know a bit more than you might think, you know. Watch this.

0:19:070:19:10

This is St Mary's Cathedral in Newcastle

0:19:160:19:19

and I'm here to ask questions about church from CBBC viewers.

0:19:190:19:23

They want to find out what goes on here and what it all means

0:19:230:19:26

and I'm looking for a friendly person who can help.

0:19:260:19:29

-Hello. You must be the priest.

-That's right, I am.

0:19:310:19:34

Well, PRIEST to meet you.

0:19:340:19:36

-Do you get it?

-I do, yeah.

-So who are you, then?

0:19:360:19:39

-My name's Dermot Donnelly.

-Hang on a minute... Donnelly, Donnelly...

0:19:390:19:43

-You're related to Dec, aren't you?

-That's right, I am, yeah.

0:19:430:19:46

-And how are you related to him?

-He's my brother. My little brother.

0:19:460:19:50

Ooh. Interesting.

0:19:500:19:51

Now, the CBBC viewers have sent me in their questions.

0:19:520:19:55

They use made-up user names on our website,

0:19:550:19:57

so if you think their names sound a bit strange, don't worry.

0:19:570:20:00

They're not real names, you know.

0:20:000:20:01

Ahem. So here's the first one.

0:20:010:20:03

Teal Cooking Tulip wants to know,

0:20:030:20:05

how long has the Christian faith been around for?

0:20:050:20:09

-It's been around for over 2,000 years.

-2,000 years, eh?

0:20:090:20:13

Oh.

0:20:130:20:15

-This is the font.

-Ooh, what's a font? You mean like Times New Roman?

0:20:150:20:19

Cos I prefer Comic Sans, although Wing Dings is a good font.

0:20:190:20:22

Do you like that font?

0:20:220:20:24

-No, this is a different kind of font, this is the baptismal font.

-Oh.

0:20:240:20:27

Eh, well the next question's about that, you know.

0:20:270:20:29

Starstone Talkative Bobcat asks,

0:20:290:20:31

why do priests put water on babies' heads in the sign of the cross?

0:20:310:20:35

Well, baptism is when you become a new Christian and new creation.

0:20:350:20:39

Right. So why do you use the cross, then?

0:20:390:20:41

Because Jesus told us.

0:20:410:20:43

He said, go out and baptise all people

0:20:430:20:45

in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

0:20:450:20:48

I see. Makes sense now. Can I have a drink of that water?

0:20:480:20:51

-No, you can't, you mucky pup.

-Oh, you cheeky scamp.

0:20:510:20:54

Here's a question from Navyblue Grinning Ladybird,

0:20:560:21:00

why are there pictures on the stained-glass windows

0:21:000:21:03

like the one behind us?

0:21:030:21:04

Oh, yeah. The reason why that is,

0:21:040:21:06

is because when stained glass first came in,

0:21:060:21:08

-not as many people could read then as they can now.

-Oh, I see.

0:21:080:21:12

-It's like a picture book.

-That's right, yeah.

0:21:120:21:14

So when you want into a church, you see the story of what we believe in.

0:21:140:21:17

It's like walking into a book, a book of truth.

0:21:170:21:20

I've got another question for you.

0:21:200:21:21

Why are they called hymns and not HERS?

0:21:210:21:24

-Well, that's actually a good question.

-Is it?

0:21:260:21:28

Yeah, because the words "hymns" comes from a Greek word

0:21:280:21:30

which means "in praise of God" so when we sing

0:21:300:21:33

we're not just singing music for the sake of singing music,

0:21:330:21:35

we're singing in praise and worship of God.

0:21:350:21:37

All right, we're running out of time here,

0:21:400:21:42

so here's some quick-fire questions.

0:21:420:21:43

Ahem. Aqua Random Anteater says,

0:21:430:21:46

do you have to be a Christian to go to church?

0:21:460:21:48

Anybody can come to the church, everybody's welcome,

0:21:480:21:51

our doors are open.

0:21:510:21:52

Why did you decide to be a priest?

0:21:520:21:55

Oh, well, now.

0:21:550:21:56

That's a longer answer, but I'll give you a short one.

0:21:560:21:58

I believe God called me to be a priest.

0:21:580:22:00

-What's the neck thing you wear?

-It just represents being a priest.

0:22:000:22:03

It's like a uniform.

0:22:030:22:04

What type of clothes do the visitors have to wear?

0:22:040:22:07

-Is there some sort of rule?

-No, not at all.

0:22:070:22:10

People can wear what they like. I mean, look what you've got on today.

0:22:100:22:13

Do you like it?

0:22:130:22:14

-It's different.

-In a good or bad way?

-Well...

0:22:140:22:18

That was amazing and another first today.

0:22:210:22:24

CBBC's Hacker T Dog appearing on Songs Of Praise.

0:22:240:22:28

Now, from one children's favourite to another.

0:22:280:22:31

A song that's been around for generations.

0:22:310:22:34

It's a timeless classic

0:22:340:22:35

and it's still being taught in schools across the land.

0:22:350:22:38

We're going to sing Sing Hosanna.

0:22:380:22:41

CHEERING

0:24:220:24:25

Helping to lead our singing today are young musicians

0:24:280:24:31

Chloe and her brother, Jonno.

0:24:310:24:34

'Jonno is... constantly tapping something.

0:24:340:24:38

'Chloe will harmonise to anything and everything.'

0:24:400:24:43

-We spend most of our time doing something musical.

-Yeah.

0:24:430:24:46

INDISTINCT LYRICS

0:24:460:24:48

Chloe and Jonno regularly lead worship in their local church

0:24:510:24:55

but today they're taking on the role of backing vocalists.

0:24:550:24:59

'It's quite different to when you're leading.'

0:24:590:25:02

Backing vocalists basically bring shape to a band

0:25:020:25:07

'and it makes it sound a bit more full.'

0:25:070:25:10

# All around... Clap, clap! #

0:25:100:25:13

'So you have to be ready to adapt to what's happening.

0:25:130:25:16

'And you've got to kind of think about what different...'

0:25:160:25:19

harmony you're singing,

0:25:190:25:21

because you're not always singing the melody when you're singing backing vocals.

0:25:210:25:24

-'We work out a lot of our harmonies by ear.

-Yeah.

0:25:260:25:30

'Because we've sung together before.

0:25:300:25:32

'So sometimes we're...'

0:25:340:25:35

We don't even mean to, but we do the same thing and it's like,

0:25:350:25:38

"Oh, yeah, I did that as well..."

0:25:380:25:39

'Music, for me, has always been a really good way

0:25:410:25:45

'to give something back to God through worship,'

0:25:450:25:47

whether it be singing or playing the drums.

0:25:470:25:49

The idea of being able to sing to God, it's almost like a prayer.

0:25:490:25:54

You can sing your prayer to glorify God.

0:25:540:25:56

When I got the call asking us

0:25:590:26:02

to sing on Junior Songs Of Praise, I was like, "What?!"

0:26:020:26:06

Cos we've never really done anything like it before.

0:26:060:26:10

It's quite daunting to be singing with Jermain Jackman and...

0:26:100:26:15

-It's quite cool.

-It is, very cool.

0:26:170:26:19

# Amazing grace!

0:26:250:26:31

# How sweet the sound

0:26:310:26:37

# That saved a wretch like me!

0:26:370:26:49

# I once was lost

0:26:490:26:55

# But now am found

0:26:550:27:02

# Was blind but now I see

0:27:020:27:12

# 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear

0:27:140:27:25

# And grace my fears relieved

0:27:250:27:37

# How precious did that grace appear

0:27:370:27:49

# The hour I first believed!

0:27:490:28:02

# When we've been here ten thousand years

0:28:140:28:26

# Bright shining as the sun

0:28:260:28:38

# We've no less days to sing God's praise

0:28:380:28:50

# Than when we first begun

0:28:500:29:02

# Than when we first be-gun. #

0:29:020:29:23

Yes.

0:29:240:29:25

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:29:250:29:29

Wow, wasn't that amazing, guys?

0:29:320:29:36

Wasn't Jermain amazing? What did you think of him?

0:29:360:29:38

-Erm, he was really inspirational.

-And you?

0:29:380:29:41

He's just an inspiration to, like, everybody

0:29:410:29:44

because the way that he's just...

0:29:440:29:47

really young and he's got a voice that amazing, it's incredible.

0:29:470:29:51

It was incredible, wasn't it? What did you think of Jermain?

0:29:510:29:54

I thought that his voice is just so powerful

0:29:540:29:57

and it spreads all around the world.

0:29:570:29:59

You're very right. And what about you, what did you think of him?

0:29:590:30:02

I thought he's a big inspiration to young children

0:30:020:30:04

and he sings very, very nicely.

0:30:040:30:06

Well, there you go. He's inspired all you lot, hasn't he?

0:30:060:30:09

Back to you, David.

0:30:090:30:11

Before our last song, I want to thank Jermain!

0:30:110:30:14

I want to thank the Town Hall Gospel Choir!

0:30:140:30:16

CBBC, Hacker T Dog!

0:30:180:30:21

You, the crowd!

0:30:220:30:24

And you at home, thank you for watching.

0:30:260:30:29

APPLAUSE

0:33:150:33:18

0:33:340:33:37
