After gaining the Christmas number 1, members of Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust’s choir were recently congratulated in person by global superstar Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber presented the choir with their trophy for getting the number one for their charity single, “A Bridge Over You”. In the race to the Christmas number 1, he had tweeted his support for the choir. After meeting them, he said: “I was honoured to meet everyone from the choir and I’m really happy that they got their number 1."
Caroline Smith, Highly Specialist Physiotherapist for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, said: “It was amazing to meet Justin Bieber, who has gained even more ‘Beliebers’ from his support of our choir and the NHS. It all feels a bit surreal as we are NHS workers, not pop stars! But we are just so pleased to have been able to celebrate all the NHS heroes who go the extra mile every day.”
