Nation falls in love with sweet choir boy who sung his heart out at Queen’s funeral

On Britain's saddest day, family members and the public mourned as they said goodbye to the nation's grandmother – Queen Elizabeth II.

As the Queen's coffin was carried inside the abbey on September 19, many viewers quickly spotted one young choir singer who sang his heart out during the service.

The choir sang The Sentences from Revelation 14:13, which has been a part of the service for every state funeral since the early 18th century.

Many praised the choir's performance, but social media users were particularly impressed with one of the choir singers.

The choirboy – who had auburn-coloured hair – caught the attention of many who tuned in to watch the Queen's funeral.

One tweeted: "Little red-headed choir boy singing with feeling and expression. #QueenElizabethIIMemorial."

Another said: "I'd like a dedicated camera on little ginger choir boy at QEII's service. He's giving 150% and I'm here for it."

"I love the music, pomp and pageantry but I’m not a fan of prayers and choir boy singing, although that ginger kid is living his best life fair play to him #queensfuneral," a third shared on Twitter.

A fourth added: "Obsessed with the red-headed choir boy giving the performance of his life at the #queensfuneral."
