At each stop on the tour, Russell, keen to promote and support local talent whenever possible, will be supported on stage by a local choir. Any vocal ensembles and choirs from the area of each show, can apply by sending in an example piece of their work as a group, with the winner for each show to be selected by Russell himself.
