Do you love singing competitions such as XFactor or The Voice? What if it was mixed with loveable animated characters, humour that will make adults and children cry of laughter and a backstory that will make your heart melt? Now you can enjoy all of those as Sing opens in theatres across the UK.

Sing is a new animated film produced by Universal Studios (Minions, Jurassic World). A koala bear, Buster Moon (voiced by the brilliant Matthew McConaughey), owns a local theatre. However, none of the recent shows brought much profit and now no one goes there anymore. Unable to pay the bills, Mr Moon has to think of a new way to earn the money. That's when he gets an idea - a singing competition. Animals from all around the city come for open auditions, but only a few will be put through to another round. Who will make it? And will Buster be able to keep his beloved theatre?

The film is filled with musical numbers that children, as well as their parents, will definitely enjoy. From Elton John to Taylor Swift - the soundtrack is outstanding.

That's not everything great about the new Universal film. The storyline of Sing touches a little more important subjects, but still in a friendly way. A female trying to find an escape from her monotonous life as a housewife, a teenager with a broken heart or a young man, whose life is planned by his father. There is, however, one thing that connects all of them - they all go to audition to follow their dreams.

Summing up, Sing offers something for everyone. Even if you're just there for the songs, you'll still find yourself engaged in the plot.

I would highly recommend going and seeing this show for yourselves as it isn't one to miss!
