The chosen track, Mariah Carey’s ‘Hero’, will be engineered and produced by Ed John of Apple Acre Studios, who has recently worked with Busted, and will see the aforementioned stars joining Goggle box’s Sandra Martin (who has recently lost two family members to Coronavirus) and Sandi Bogle, Ex on the Beach star, Jess Impiazzi, Coronation Street actress, Amanda Barrie, Benefits Street star, Dee Kelly, ITVS Dapper Laughs, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Lady C, X Factors Andy Abraham , British boxing manager and promoter, Kellie Maloney, and Big Brother’s Simon Gross – the brainchild behind this incredible collaboration.
Simon (Gross), whose original idea has brought this array of talent together in support of the NHS explained: “My aim was to bring together a fun, eclectic and diverse line up of celebrities from across the UK’s most popular TV shows and give something back to the NHS at this extremely difficult time.”
He added: “I want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved for donating your time to be a part of this amazing project, and to Universal for allowing us to use the track, and, of course, not forgetting our fantastic NHS working so tirelessly around the country right now to look after us all. Let’s hope we can raise lots of money for this wonderful cause with the help of the general public.”
