The Missing People Choir delivered the most moving moment of this year’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ live semi finals, with a powerful performance on Friday’s (2 June) show. 

The singing group, who include those whose family members have gone missing, sparked an emotional response from the judges after their rendition of Birdy’s hit ‘Wings’.
