Singing in the rain
PLYMOTHIAN David Webb was there in the middle of one of the most memorable moments of the Queen's Jubilee Flotilla.
The tenor and his Amore 'band' mates in the 12-strong Royal College of Music Chamber Choir sang their hearts out in front of the Royal Family despite being soaked to the skin, frozen and barely able to hear the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on the deck below.
He says: "To be part of this fantastic celebration was such an honour and for this boy from St Budeaux, it was an absolutely incredible experience.
"When the barge turned and we came face to face with the Queen to sing Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and God Save The Queen it was even more exhilarating than we had anticipated.

"The cheer we received from the crowds on the banks of the Thames afterwards was deafening – I guess it was a similar feeling to scoring a goal at Wembley!"
The choir stood for over an hour in the rain before the performance, refusing to wear their rainproof gear as they wanted to look their best for the Queen.
The sight of the singers giving their all in appalling weather conditions has become one of the iconic images of the pageant.
David says it's an experience he will never forget. "The whole event was so magnificent."
It topped a great month which saw Amore's first album, Stand Together, reach No 3 in the classical charts.
