'Blue Monday' flashmob by rail employees across London stations

Doing their bit to brighten up ‘Blue Monday’ (21st January), a group of singing rail employees are to stage a series of flashmobs across three London stations, highlighting the release of their song “Lean On Me” in aid of the charity Railway Children.

The group ‘Voices for Railway Children’ decided to release the song ‘Lean On Me' after a video of them flashmobbing London Bridge went viral, generating millions of views across multiple social media channels, with members of the public and celebrities, including Stephen Fry, giving it a ringing endorsement. 

The decision to record the song was made following numerous requests across social media, with the team behind the project choosing to release the feel-good song on Blue Monday, aiming to do their bit to cheer the country up on what is traditionally the most depressing day of the year.

The Voices for Railway Children choir was organised by the charity Railway Children, sponsored by Southeastern and produced by James Hawkins, the man behind Britain’s Got Talent’s Missing People Choir.
