LIVE from the Tyne: 2CC ‘Singing Sensations’
The 2CC’s 7THAnnual Charity Show | Online Live Stream Event
Sunday 16thAugust 2020
After having to cancel this year’s 2CC (2 Chosen Charities) Charity Show due to the current Covid-19 situation, we are delighted to confirm that the show must and will go on. With much excitement, we proudly announce that 2CC ‘Singing Sensations’ will go ahead at 7pm on Sunday 16thAugust, streamed live from the beautiful Tyne Theatre and Opera House.
This live stream event showcases some of the best vocal talent to come out of the North East and will be hosted by BBC Radio Newcastle’s very own Alfie Joey. Singing Sensations include; Abi Garrido, who graced our TV screens on The X Factor, as well as stages throughout the country, Graham, who has sang with some of the biggest names in the industry including Kirsty McColl, Aswad, Simple Minds, Paul Young and Richard Marx, the award-winning and highly talented Danielle Brown and Britain’s Got Talentstar Jamie Lee Harrison,who has over 1500 gigs around the world under his belt. Closing the show will be UK pop songstress Channy, whose powerful vocals and energetic vibe has landed her some impressive support slots for artists such as Jess Glynne, Sigala, Olly Murs, Nathan Sykes, Scouting for Girls, Tulisa and many more.
In addition to the live performances, there will also be clips from previous 2CC shows featuring Collabro’s Matt Pagan, panto favourites Charlie Richmond and Lewis Denny & more.
All profits raised from donations will be split between the theatre’s Preservation Trust and the Marie Curie cancer care, in honour of 2CC co-founder Michael Parker, who passed away last year at the Elswick Hospice. The show will include two lovely messages from these charities, for whom all these fantastic artists are kindly giving their time and talent to help support. Audiences can tune in to the live stream on the Tyne Theatre’s Facebook page or YouTube channel at 7pm on Sunday 16thAugust. While encouraged to watch live, for those that miss it, the show will be available to re-watch until Friday 21stAugust.
The show is free to stream, however we ask that you please donate what you can to help support our two chosen charities here: https://bit.ly/LFTT2CC
