I had previously heard that Joe McElderry was going to be appearing in Regent Street so I took the opportunity to go along to see for myself before meeting my friend Julie for dinner. He was there to finish a 30 hour Carol-A-Thon which had been taking place as part of The American Express Shop West End VIP Weekend. The Christmas carolling marathon was set up to raise money for the charity Kids Company (www.kidsco.org.uk).
Joe sang with a group of children and stopped to watch the fireworks finale. Before rushing off, he was kind enough to pose for a few photo’s. Such a sweetie!
Joe’s album, Classic Christmas is now available to buy online and at HMV.
