The D-Day Darlings: Honoring WWII Veterans Through Music

Keeping the Legacy of WWII Veterans Alive

The D-Day Darlings, a British choir, have undertaken the poignant task of preserving the memory of World War II veterans. Amid the dwindling number of these brave individuals, with estimates suggesting that no living WWII veterans will remain in two decades, the choir plays a vital role in remembering their sacrifices.

A Choir with a Noble Cause

Founded in 2008 by Katie Ashby, The D-Day Darlings started as a trio and have since gained recognition in the military community. Their performances, including at the Imperial War Museum, serve as a tribute to the veterans of WWII.

Musical Bridges to the Past

The choir specializes in classic WWII melodies that once brought hope to Britain in its darkest times. Their songs transcend mere music, acting as a bridge to an era of profound historical significance.

A Nostalgic Journey on Britain’s Got Talent

Appearing on “Britain’s Got Talent,” The D-Day Darlings captivated audiences with their renditions of iconic wartime songs like “We’ll Meet Again” by Vera Lynn and “Rule Britannia,” adorned in WRAF uniforms against a backdrop of historical WWII footage.

A Memorable Final Performance

For their final show on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the choir performed “The White Cliffs of Dover,” a song symbolizing hope and peace. Their performance featured stunning solos and harmonies, with the audience enhancing the patriotic atmosphere with red, white, and blue glowsticks. A special surprise guest appearance during their act left a lasting impression on the audience.

Beyond Britain’s Got Talent

Although they did not win the competition, The D-Day Darlings continued their mission to honor the legacy of WWII. They secured a contract with Sony Music UK and were set to release their debut album, furthering their dedication to keeping the wartime spirit alive.
