At the most wonderful time of the year, Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity is delighted to be hosting ‘The Stars Come Out To Sing At Christmas’ on Tuesday 15th December, a star studded evening of Christmas carols, festive messages and spectacular musical performances streamed via carols.nordoff-robbins.org.uk
For the first time ever, the much-loved Nordoff Robbins Carol Service will be virtual, as they continue the legacy of this special event bringing family, friends and supporters together. Hosted by music’s most loved legend, Nile Rodgers, this year’s service will bring Christmas to you at home, with special appearances from a star-studded line-up across the world including Sir Cliff Richard, the international star who has spent four Christmases at number one, with contributions from Roger Daltrey of The Who, the incredible Florence Welch, plus the sublime Jack Savoretti.
American pop-rockers OneRepublic are also joining the bill, with some of the UK’s finest musical talents Freya Ridings, Kaiser Chiefs, James Dean Bradfield from Manic Street Preachers, Simple Minds, Rebecca Ferguson, and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. It’s an evening jam packed with special appearances, including a festive message from BBC Young Musician award winning Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and many more yet to be announced.
This year has been a challenge for everybody and so a host of the biggest stars are coming together to spread much needed Christmas cheer and raise valuable funds for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, a charity that is important to every single artist involved. As they perform classic Christmas carols, share their holiday messages and bring some festive surprises along the way, viewers at home are encouraged to enjoy their own Christmas celebrations and most importantly, are invited to donate at any point during the virtual concert.
