As the singers sing along Birmingham Street as the GMB presenter says ‘bloomin love this’

This is the moment a group of barbershop singers burst into impromptu song as they crowd the edge of a busy Birmingham street. The hilarious footage, taken in Kings Heath at the weekend, has gone viral and even caught the attention of an ITV Good Morning Britain news presenter.

Local resident Tom Carroll filmed the footage of the four singers outside Schooners Cafe in York Road. They brought smiles as they sang “Hello Mary-Lou,” which was once performed by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.




Sharing X, Good Morning Britain news presenter Marverine Cole was quick to respond, adding: “Bloomin love this”.

Tom commented: “Kings Heath, I wasn’t expecting a quartet of barbers. Never change. Really impressed, it cheered us all up massively.”

“Kings Heath owns the Freshmen Four,” said The Village, calling the show “brilliant”.


One of the singers – Kings Norton’s David Eden-Sangwell – was stunned to see it being shared online as the post went viral.

David explained that it was the first public performance for him and his friends, who had formed a new barbershop quartet called 404 and were rehearsing outside for the first time ahead of a national competition.
