Justin Bieber Teams Up With UK Health Workers For Charity Song
Written by on December 16, 2020
Justin Bieber has recorded a special version of his song “Holy”, teaming up with a choir in London comprised of nurses, doctors and other health care staff. Members of the The Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir recorded their vocals at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.
The NHS Choir gained fame when back in 2015, Bieber’s song “Love Yourself” and the choir’s “A Bridge Over You” were both vying for the top spot on the U.K.’s Christmas charts. Bieber urged his millions of fans on Twitter to support the choir, not his own music, and it eventually won the top spot on the singles chart. The star then travelled to London and presented them with their charity award.
Bieber said in a statement, “It’s great to be reunited with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir, as we share a fun bit of U.K. chart history together. Especially in these difficult times, I’m humbled to team up with them for a charity single that will benefit NHS workers on the frontlines of this pandemic and pay tribute to their unbelievable dedication.”
Profits from the single will be split between NHS Charities Together, which represents over 230 NHS charities, and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity. The new “Holy” collab is set for release on Dec. 18.
