With a little help… a song for NHS heroes

STARS including Nile Rodgers, Seal, Myleene Klass and Louisa Johnson are proving theyre real friends to the NHS, with a song for its 70th anniversary.

The singers have teamed up with health workers to record With A Little Help From My Friends at the legendary Abbey Road studios.

Also assisting with vocals were Danny Jones, Beverley Knight, Engelbert Humperdinck, Reef, Marina and The Diamonds, Una Healy, Alexandra Burke, Rick Astley, Tony Hadley and UB40.

Proceeds go to NHS Charities Together, a group of 130 good causes.

Getting behind the mic for the tribute, classical star Klass said: ‘For me the NHS is so important. My mum came over from the Philippines in the ‘60s to be a nurse for the NHS. When youre brought up in that environment you realise the power of it.

The 40-year-old added: ‘I dont know anyone that hasnt used the NHS, or needed the support of it.

Dame Vera Lynn, 101, said: ‘I remember my mother taking me to the doctor and having to pay for it. You wouldnt go unless you were very ill. And those without money couldnt go at all. We are so fortunate to have the NHS.

Meanwhile, amid the serious work, The Voice UKs Danny Jones and Louisa Johnson still found time to follow the World Cup and were jumping for joy after Englands victory over Colombia.
