Military Wives choir "Wherever You Are"

This is a beautiful song, with such great pictures of the military men coming home to their families.  What a huge sacrifice these families are making, to be apart for so long.--Amy

It is taken from a British “series” where a young man called Gareth Malone takes a group of people and turns them into a choir.  This time, he has taken a group of military wives, whose husbands are all away in Afghanistan, and turned them into a choir.  Gareth looks to be about 16 years old, but he is actually in his mid-30s.  He is also a Choirmaster for the London Symphony Orchestra, among other things.  The song is based on excerpts from letters written by the couples while apart, and this is the beautiful result.
