Nile Rodgers and Chic lead Carol Service festivities

Nile Rodgers and Chic performed an exclusive set at our annual Carol Service, held this year on Tuesday 11 December. 

With readings this year from Clarke Peters, Michaela Coel, Bill Nighy and performances from award-winning concert pianist – and Nordoff Robbins Ambassador – Nicholas McCarthy, and the incredible Caroline Redman Lusher, Director and Founder of Rock Choir, the annual event played host to a number of celebrity guests who joined in the festivities to raise funds for our life-changing music therapy.

Before the final carol of ‘Hark the Herald’ Angel Sing, audience members couldn’t help but dance as they enjoyed an exclusive performance from Nordoff Robbins supporter, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, guest-joined by 2018 X-Factor Stars Misunderstood and Acacia and Aaliyah.

Among music legends, Nile Rodgers amplifies his legacy as a multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music. His work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide. Nile Rodgers and CHIC most recently released their first new album in 25 years, “It’s About Time” which garnered a Top 10 debut on the UK album charts.

This year’s Carol Service raised over £80,000 to support our life-changing music therapy – our huge thanks to all performers and attendees for making the night such a success.
