An array of community and school choirs joined forces to form the mass choir, and they wowed the crowds in the Grand Ring during this year's closing ceremony with their debut performance of Things Grow, a new song created to mark the show's 2017 theme of Celebrating the Arts.

Soprano Emma Nuule also accompanied the Showstoppers in the Grand Ring and led the singers in a performance of the national anthem.
