got it covered
Olivia Colman, Suranne Jones and Helena Bonham Carter are just some of the A-list actors who will appear on a Children In Need covers album.
The album, Children In Need: Got It Covered, will see the stars put their own spin on their popular songs for a good cause.
A 60-minute programme will follow the recording process as the stars get vocal training from renowned coach Mark De-Lisser, who will help the stars perfectly put their spin on their bespoke tracks.
The documentary will also shine a light on the projects funded by Children In Need, and see some of the actors involved visiting projects to see first-hand how they are making a difference to young lives just by lending their voice.
British actors David Tennant, Jodie Whittaker, Adrian Lester, Luke Evans, Jim Broadbent, Shaun Dooley and Himesh Patel will also make appearances on the album.
Children In Need: Got It Covered is set to be released later in the year.
Tommy Nagra, Director of Content at BBC Children in Need, said: ‘We are thrilled that this amazing line-up of acting talent are giving up their time to come together and create something quite unique for this year’s BBC Children in Need appeal.
‘Their musical efforts will help make a difference to the thousands of disadvantaged children and young people we support across the UK and leave a lasting impact beyond this TV special. A huge thanks to everyone involved.’
Bonham Carter has previously shown her vocal skills in the Oscar-winning big screen musical Les Miserables in 2012, while Evans recently starred in the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast as Gaston.
