Ellie Goulding lets her friend take the lead vocals while performing at her annual “Ellie Goulding and Friends” concert at the Roundhouse in London, England on Wednesday night (December 16).
The 28-year-old “On My Mind” singer gathered her close friends — Years & Years‘ Olly Alexander, Kwabs, MNEK, John Newman and Marcus Mumford for the holiday gig.
“Last night was truly epic. The dedication and good spirits of every person involved really moved me. Every musician who came to perform did so out of the kindness of their hearts, giving up their time for a wonderful cause- once again there were a lot of laughs, some tears, but mostly a lot of Christmas cheer and everyone happy to be raising money for those less fortunate,” Ellie wrote on Instagram.
She added, “I cannot thank them enough. Those people who face Christmas without a family or without a real home were in our thoughts all night. Much love xxx”
Ellie, who’s also pictured out with a friend doing some holiday shopping earlier in the week, also debuted a new cover of “O Holy Night” — listen below and download from her website!
