The Showstoppers have accepted and completed another challenge to compose a brand new musical theatre song in just 24 hours ...
The Showstoppers cast for the 24 hour song challenge

This week, The Showstoppers accepted another challenge to write a song in a mere 24 hours from Broadway and West End 'Phantom of the Opera' star Ramin Karimloo and his son Hadley.

Here's their challenge and the finished song ...

The cast for this challenge were Justin Brett, Pippa Evans, Joshua Jackson, Ali James, Adam Meggido and Andrew Pugsley.

The music was written (in the style of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'School of Rock') and performed by Duncan Walsh Atkins (keys), with Dylan Emery (guitar) and Alex Atty (percussion).

They had to write the lyrics, compose the music, learn the parts, perform to camera and edit the results all within 24 hours (12 hours really, even Showstoppers have to sleep!).

If you are enjoying the songs and videos from this series of challenges, The Showstoppers have set up a JustGiving charity page for the Care Workers Fund and invite you to donate here.
