Watch West End stars sing Queen's "The Show Must Go On" for charity
With venues still shut down, artists are trying to raise funds and awareness
West End stars united for a special performance of Queen's "The Show Must Go On" to raise funds for two charities – Mind and Acting for Others.
Created by West End Live Lounge, the video features a total of 45 singers and musicians and all are helping the #SaveOurTheatres campaign. Live Lounge producer Shaun McCourt said: "The arts industry is in dire need of government support in such difficult times. As we begin to see lockdown eased across other sectors, the arts are being left behind. For an industry which puts millions of pounds into the economy each year, it is worrying that little is being done to preserve it. There is no song more apt right now than 'The Show Must Go On'".
