Join us for a very special evening of live music in support of your local air ambulance.
X Factor 2013 winner, Sam Bailey, will be performing alongside rising classical music star, Katie Marshall, and the award winning De Montfort University Gospel Choir as well as further acts to be announced. A VIP mulled wine and mince pie reception will follow the event with a chance to meet some of our special guests and take part in our fabulous Christmas stocking auction.
Before she stole the hearts of the nation by winning the tenth series of The X Factor at Christmas 2013, Sam worked as a prison officer at HM Prison Gartree as well as performing on cruise ships, in clubs and at music festivals for several years. Following her triumph, her debut single, ‘Skyscraper’, reached Christmas number one and her debut album, The Power of Love stormed to the top of the UK album charts in 2014.
Katie is a 15 year old rising star in the classical music world. She stated classical singing lessons from the age of 6 years and showed enormous talent from an extremely young age. Katie's rise from performing in her home town as a young girl has included appearing alongside stars such as Julian Ovenden in the Downton Abbey Christmas CD, at the O2 in the Next Brit Thing, as a Soloist on tour with BGT's Jonathan Antoine, performing with G4 on their Christmas Tour and joining André Rieu's Soprano, Mirusia Louwerse on tour in the Netherlands.
