IT was certainly a case of ‘take a chance on me’ for Dobcross’s World Champion whistler David Morris as he turned up to the recording studio with no idea what lay in store…
The pleasant surprise waiting for him at Air Studios in London was a request to record some whistling for new movie ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ which is out in July.
The film is the sequel to the 2008 film, starring Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep and featuring a host of popular Abba hit songs.
“I had no idea which film it was until I arrived and was told that Benny Andersson of Abba was there overseeing the music production,” explained David.
“It was a great thrill to meet him having been an Abba fan over the years!”
David spent time in the studio with Benny and Anne Dudley, music director who composed the theme music to the TSB Bank TV advert campaign which David whistles.
2018 is proving to be a busy year for David who is soon appearing in a concert in Dublin with the RTE Concert Orchestra in the National Theatre.
Then later in July he is off to the USA to perform in two concerts in St Louis, Missouri as guest soloist in the summer Proms in the Park series.
