Mark De-Lisser

Founder | Choral Director | Arranger

 

SING OUT! Sunday founder Mark De­Lisser is one of the most sought after choral directors and arrangers in the industry today. His contagious arrangements are sung by choirs the world over, and his skills as a director are in constant demand. His most recent choral arrangement of Stand By Me was sung by the Kingdom Choir at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. So good inftact that it reached Number 1 in the USA on one of the Billboard 100 charts. His SING OUT! book series has become a go-to for choirs of all ages and abilities. He is the proud Musical Director of the award-winning ACM Gospel Choir and the founder of Singology Community Choirs. Mark recently lent his choral expertise to Gareth Malone, when he appeared as a guest mentor on the BBC’s “The Naked Choir’.

 

As a vocal coach his credits are endless; he has been a resident coach on BBC’s “The Voice” since it first began in 2012, and has developed a host of stars including Jessie J, Nicole Sherzinger and Jamie Woon to name but a few.  

 

On his vision behind SING OUT! Sunday, De­Lisser says:

“I created SING OUT! Sunday to give choirs and singers the chance to sing en mass. I wanted everyone to experience the massive choral sound that is such a joy to hear. My hope is that SOS will be a transformative experience for all. Not just musically but emotionally too!”

His skills as both a singer and drummer have led him to perform all over the world, alongside artists such as Pixie Lott, Scouting for Girls and Joss Stone. Many of you will have also heard him as the tenor voice in the SING OUT! series.

 

Holly Petrie

Currently touring the world as a backing vocalist / musician for Anastasia and Brit sensation Jess Glynn, chances are you’ll have seen or heard Holly somewhere in the last year! Her flawless skills as both a lead and supporting vocalist are why Holly is the “go-to singer” for so many people. You’ll have also heard her as our SING OUT! alto.
