is thrilled to announce that Dionne Bromfield
is to join the phenomenal celebrity line-up for BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical in a glittering curtain call for MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET
BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical 2011
is working with the best of West End Theatre
and a star studded line up. This unique charity project is giving renowned celebrities from the music sphere the chance to perform a hit song with a top show, to take place in September to help raise vital funds for disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK.
The show-stopping celebrities involved in the series of unique curtain calls are the gorgeous Peter Andre performing GHOST the Musical’s spectacular number ‘Unchained Melody’, the loveable Stacey Solomon singing the duet ‘For Good’ from WICKED, soul sensation Dionne Bromfield delivering a rendition of ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love’ with MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, chart-toppers Sugababes will take on ‘Dancing Queen’ in MAMMA MIA! and the legendary Melanie C will sing the highly charged ‘We Are the Champions’ and ‘We Will Rock You’ in the Queen musical We Will Rock You.
London's brand new smash hit musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET tells the electrifying story of the night Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis came together to make music and ended up making history.
Inspired by the actual event that took place on 4th December, 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis, this engaging musical is a story of fame, friendship, discovery, professional jealousy and incredible music as four of the industry's most extraordinary talents made music together for the first and only time in their careers.
'I can't wait to get up on stage at MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET for 'BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical'. To put my own spin on a 1950's classic, and then perform it live is just such an exciting opportunity. I can't believe that I'm getting the chance to appear on a West End stage and help disadvantaged UK kids at the same time.' – Dionne Bromfield

It’s going to be scary to get up on a West End stage but I’m so happy to take on the challenge and get involved in BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical.” – Stacey Solomon
“I am so excited to be taking part in 'Pop Goes The Musical' for this year's BBC Children In Need, especially as I will be performing with the cast of the incredible show, We Will Rock You. I have always been a huge Queen fan and standing on the stage of the Dominion Theatre to sing one of the band's anthems is an absolute honour and a great way to raise money for such a fantastic charity.” – Melanie C

So when I was approached by BBC Children In Need to get involved, I jumped at the chance and just hope that I can do it justice! The cast are great so it'll be so much fun working with them and raising money for an amazing cause all at the same time." – Peter Andre
“We're so excited to be part of BBC Children In Need this year. It's such a great cause and helps so many people and to be able to join the cast of MAMMA MIA!, one of the West End’s most famous musicals, is a real honour for us.” - Sugababes
