VIDEO: Royal wedding gospel choir surprises BA plane passengers

Travellers on-board a British Airways (BA) flight to Australia earlier this week were treated to a rendition of the popular soul track Stand By Me from the Kingdom Choir.

Global public relations manager for BA, Emily Coen said: "The passengers were delighted and surprised as they were tired after such a long flight."

Several passengers captured the event on their phones, while others got out from their seats to dance and sing along.

On their Twitter page, Kingdom Choir said: "We had such a brilliant time performing Stand By Me and surprising some very unexpecting passengers on board our flight with British Airways to Australia."

Choir members had subtly taken their seats on the plane before appearing one by one at the latter stages of the journey to entertain their unsuspecting fellow passengers.

Fans expressed their glee on social media. One posted on Twitter: "Awesome! The very best kind of in-flight entertainment possible."

Another said: "Why does stuff like this never happen to me when I fly? I'm jealous! Beautiful performance."

The Kingdom Choir received international media attention following their performance during the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May.

Prince Harry and Meghan have themselves been in Australia this week, as part of a royal tour coinciding with the Invictus Games in Sydney - a event for ex-servicemen and women.
