Nicole, who will be performing with the Rays of Sunshine Choir, was inspired to be a part of the event after meeting eight-year-old wish child Ella, from Lancashire, who is currently living with Renal Failure. Ella, who had her wish granted to sing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ to Simon Cowell by the charity, will be taking to the stage alongside 15 other brave and inspiring seriously ill children.
Nicole Scherzinger commented:
“I am super excited to perform at the Rays of Sunshine Concert at The SSE Arena, Wembley in October. Seeing Ella’s beautiful smile again brightened up my day and it was an absolute pleasure to meet Murad and Joel too, they’re all such brave and inspiring children.
“I can’t wait to take to the stage and help Rays of Sunshine brighten the lives of many more brave and deserving children. This concert is such a unique event, with over a thousand seriously ill children in the audience, that it’s an absolute honour to be a part of it. It’s going to be a fantastic show.”
Jane Sharpe, CEO of Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity, added:
“The concert is going to be a magical event which will enable us to provide a night of distraction and entertainment to thousands of brave and deserving children. We are so grateful to SSE, The SSE Arena, Wembley and all our amazing performers for making this incredible night possible.”
