Each year Paradise Kids puts together an Angel Choir. Our Angels ‘pay it forward’ to other children by actively helping Paradise Kids continue ‘help heal the heartache,’ raising vital funds and greater community awareness of the help we provide for children. During the Christmas period, our Angels delight many with their performances. If you are between the ages of 7 and 17 and love to sing … come join our Angel Choir. There will be opportunities for you to sing Christmas carols and songs at events and businesses around the Gold Coast.
We are privileged to have Elisa James as our Choir Director of the Paradise Kids Angel Choir. Elisa is a highly skilled and professionally trained voice coach, singer, actor and presenter with a Masters in Vocal Pedagogy (Qld Conservatorium), Master of Science (USA) and more. Elisa has developed HAPS … a holistic vocal training method. Leading up to our live performances you first receive 6 weeks of voice training and rehearsals in a group setting from Elisa.

Free to Participate
Our Angel Choir is FREE to all participants. Being involved in the Angel Choir is a public role and we expect all our Angels to behave fitting to their role through their commitment and behaviour, not bringing discredit to Paradise Kids in any way. Angels must demonstrate respect and be kind to each other at all times.
Angel Audition Day
If you want to take part in the choir this year you MUST attend our Angel Audition. This is a chance for us to meet you all and go though everything you need to know about the Angel Choir. During this time we will require you to sing so our choir director can assess your vocals and direct you as to where your place in the choir will be. We are on the look out for Angels who would like to perform a solo/duet or introduce the choir at some of our live performances. Please come ready to perform with a Christmas song of your choice.
