We’re proud to announce that our amazing Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir have a live engagement at this year’s BRIT Awards on Tuesday 11 May, performing with soulful superstar Rag’n’Bone Man and the legend that is P!nk!
Our Choir will provide sweet harmonies and a lush vocal backdrop for the chart-topping pair’s recent collaboration ‘Anywhere Away From Here’, in what is set to be an emotional high-point of the ceremony.
The BRIT Awards 2021 with Mastercard are already a huge date in the live entertainment calendar – it will be the first major indoor music event to welcome back a live audience, with 2,500 tickets to the O2 arena event being gifted to frontline heroes and their guests via a ballot.
Choir leader and Children’s Physiotherapist Caroline Smith (pictured right) said: “We’re so excited to be a part of music history, and truly privileged to be able to perform for our NHS family and all the key worker heroes.”
“We hope this very special version of ‘Anywhere Away From Here’ acts as a tribute to all the superstars at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and our NHS colleagues across the whole UK, who’ve done such extraordinary work keeping the country safe.
“Thanks so much to Rag’n’Bone Man too for inviting us – we can’t wait for the big night!”
Speaking about performing with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir, Rag’n’Bone Man said: “Having people attend this special evening makes me really excited for touring to come! I’m grateful that P!nk is able to join from across the pond, to my band as ever and the NHS Choir are sounding amazing!”
This performance comes hot on the heels of a big end to 2020 for the Choir, which saw them collaborate with Justin Bieber and perform at Windsor Castle for The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast. All their rehearsals and performances are done in their own time, fitting around the vital work they do for our NHS.
This year’s BRIT Awards will take place on Tuesday 11th May at The O2 arena, exclusively broadcast on ITV and ITV Hub and hosted by award winning comedian and actor Jack Whitehall.
Nominations were unveiled last month with Celeste, Dua Lipa, Joel Corry and Young T & Bugsey joining Arlo Parks in receiving three nominations each, and Jessie Ware, J Hus, Bicep, AJ Tracey up for two awards as with Headie One.
