Justin Bieber is giving back this Christmas. The singer has teamed up with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS (National Health Service) Choir for a charity version of his single “Holy.” The collaboration is a tribute to the tireless work the British health service has done to combat COVID-19 in the UK.
According to NME, the version was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and is set for release on Friday (Dec. 18), with proceeds slated to be split between NHS Charities Together and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity. “It’s great to be reunited with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir as we share a fun bit of UK chart history together,” said Bieber in a statement. “Especially in these difficult times, I’m humbled to team up with them for a charity single that will benefit NHS workers on the frontlines of this pandemic and pay tribute to their unbelievable dedication.”
“We’re beyond excited to finally share the news!!! We’re back together with our old friend @justinbieber, singing our hearts out on this new version of his gorgeous song ‘Holy’, all to raise money for @NHSCharities and @LG_NHS!,” read a tweet from the NHS Choir about the collaboration, which beefs up the original with the angelic voices of the choir, decked out in their hospital scrubs.
