Each singer has a family member who serves in the Armed Forces.

Honey, 13, and her fellow singers were invited to audition for the television talent show by judge Simon Cowell during a rehearsal in London.

They brought the judges to tears with their rendition of Welcome Home, earning a place in Tuesday night’s semi-final.

Performing live at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, they sang another song about life in the military titled Stand Up.

The group missed out on a place in the final but enjoyed their performance.

Honey’s mum Tamsin said: “It was a fantastic experience.

“Once the show was over there was a lovely atmosphere back at the hotel where a number of the acts gathered around the piano for a sing along.”

The public vote saw impressionist Ben Nickless and musicians Flintz and Taylor win places in Sunday night’s live final.

The choir spent the night in London and have been invited to watch Trooping the Colour on Thursday as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Honey, a Stamford High School pupil whose family live at RAF Wittering, will continue to perform in the choir, sharing her experiences of life in the Armed Forces.
