June 17th: Good Morning Britain



Jools Holland popped into the Good Morning Britain (ITV) studio this morning for a chat with Susanna Reid and Adil Ray about his Jools & Jim's Joyride podcast with Jim Moir, the excitement of going back to the stage with live shows, and a wonderful insight into his new album due later this year, with a special live link with Lang Lang, one of the star collaborators on the album.

June 4th: Angels of the Nation
Angels by Kindred Spirit is the outcome of a wonderful project initiated by legendary producer Steve Brown. A multitude of stars have come together to complete it and raise awareness and funds for the Angels of the Nation Appeal and now, sadly, in Steve's memory.

Each artist recorded their contributions to the cover of Robbie Williams' iconic song during lockdown. You can watch the touching collaboration here. Please donate on the JustGiving page. The funds will be used to produce statues for the grieving families of NHS workers who lost their lives to save others. Any money left will be donated to other worthy NHS charities.
