Some of Britain’s most talented singers, dancers and performers are coming together tonight to bring awareness to the Rays of Sunshine charity, which grants wishes for seriously ill children.
JLS, Pixie Lott, Leona Lewis, & Alexandra Burke, are among many names performing in this one off event. Adam Lambert, Conor Maynard, Jaz Ellington Stooshe, and Spelbound will also at the Rays of Sunshine Concert at The Royal Albert Hall tonight, [Thursday 7th June]. The event will be hosted by Kiss Fm’s Melvin Odoom and Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays.
“JLS loves supporting Rays of Sunshine and has been privileged to meet hundreds of amazing children and teenagers through their work. Every one of these young people has inspired us with their strength and bravery. ‘The Rays of Sunshine Concert’ will be a moving event for the performers and an amazing night of entertainment for music fans everywhere.”
British Global superstar, Leona Lewis said:
“I love being an ambassador for Rays of Sunshine. Every day of the year the charity adds a touch of sparkle into the lives of brave and deserving children. The Rays of Sunshine Concert will bring hundreds of children together for a precious night of fun and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”
Amongst the audience will be 1500 seriously ill children who have previously had their wishes granted by Rays of Sunshine. These will include 14-year-old Isabelle from Barnet who is living with Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the tibia. On the day of the concert Isabelle will be fulfilling her wish to go for a shopping spree at Lipsy in Brent Cross before coming to the concert and meeting Pixie Lott. 17-year-old Wasim from Harrow. Wasim had a liver transplant last year and was doing very well. Unfortunately, as a result of the transplant has developed a life threatening illness which is currently undiagnosed. Last year Rays of Sunshine fulfilled his wish to cook with Gordon Ramsay at Claridges Hotel. He also attended a recent reception hosted by Samantha Cameron at No 10 Downing Street. Katie, 10 years old, from Lambhill, Glasgow is living with Neurofibromatosis (tumours) diagnosed in 2007. Katie’s greatest wish was to design a giant teddy bear and name it after her consultant, Jennifer. In August last year, Katie designed her giant bear complete with a pink spotty dress and pink bow in her hair!

The lovely JLS boys, have given us a real treat, by releasing a few sneak peek snapshots of their next single, ‘Do You Feel What I Feel?‘ and the boys are looking a great as ever. The track is due to be released at the end of November.It looks like they had a lot of fun making this video, and we can’t wait to see the finished product. The boys say that the track is not a christmas song, though it does use a snippet of the Bing Crosby classic ‘Do You See What I See’ . either way we are sure it’s going to be great.
JLS show just how far they have come, since coming second place on X FACTER in 2008. This week they acted as mentors and advisers to New Vibe, the all boy bad in this years competition, giving them some tips and advise, and who better to give it
