Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust's latest bid for a charity Christmas number one is out now after doctors and nurses in south east London joined forces with Justin Bieber.

Five years after battling him in the charts for the Christmas top spot, the global superstar has released charity single 'Holy' with the NHS trust's choir.

All profits through the single are split between NHS Charities Together (which represents over 230 NHS charities) and the  Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity.

Justin Bieber reached out to the healthcare staff on the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir to start this project, saying that he was “humbled” to work with them.

The unlikely pair announced their new collaboration, with the L&G NHS Trust Choir adding their voices to a special version of Bieber's UK hit 'Holy'.

The choir came together to record ‘Holy’ at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London.

News Shopper:

‘Holy’ was released on 18 December; available from all digital music outlets, and Lewisham and Greenwich Trust are asking everyone to "band together and support our NHS heroes this Christmas, and help our NHS Beliebers reach the top come Christmas Day!"

The video has so far had over a hundred thousand views, and recieved wide support from celebrities and the public.

Caroline Smith, Children’s Community Physiotherapist and – in her spare time – leader of the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir, said: “Justin Bieber helped make our dreams come true in 2015 and he’s doing the same this year; we really can’t thank him enough for the chance to work with him on this wonderful, uplifting song.

"We’re so proud to represent Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and all the heroes in the NHS.”

The Lewisham and Greenwich choir shot to worldwide fame in 2015 after they claimed the top spot ahead of the Canadian superstar.

The trust's 'A Bridge Over You' went neck and neck with Justin's hit 'Love Yourself', but after hearing the story, the singer urged his fans to downloads the choir's song rather than his own.

The tweet went viral, with the NHS single pulling ahead in the final hours and the friendship was formed.

They met in person shortly after, Justin noted, “I was honoured to meet everyone from the choir and I’m really happy that they got their number one.”
