JLS Announce Official Sports Relief Single and London O2 Concert 24th March

Epic Records

Undoubtedly the UK’s biggest pop group, JLS are nothing short of a phenomenon. New single, Proud, looks set not only to rocket up the charts, but to raise money and awareness for Sport Relief 2012 as the campaign’s’s official single.

The single will be available to download on 18th March and in stores from 19th March and money raised from the single and Sport Relief will be spent helping some of the most vulnerable people in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.

A beautifully constructed heart-felt ballad, Oritsé, Marvin, Aston and JB have lent their song-writing skills as well as their signature harmonious vocals to the track, working alongside pop-powerhouse song-writer Ali Tennant and songwriter / producer supremo; Cutfather.

Proud is set to be another hit from the lads who have already notched up eight top ten singles [including five number ones], two MOBO Awards, two BRIT Awards and sold over 6 million records in the UK. The single will be available to download on 18th March and in stores from 19th March.

JLS commented, “We are so excited to be a part of Sport Relief this year. To have the official single is an absolute honour for us and we really hope that the song raises an amazing sum of money for such a fantastic cause!”

A charity close to their heart, the foursome travelled to Uganda earlier in 2011 to see how money raised through Sport Relief will help those living unimaginably tough lives. 

Performing the track on the Sport Relief enormous night of entertainment, which kicks off at 7pm, BBC1 on Friday 23rd March, the 2012 BRIT-nominated group will also be performing a special one-off matinee concert for Sport Relief at The O2 on Saturday 24th March and will be joined by special guests.

With the hugely successful third album Jukebox shooting straight to number two in the charts at the end of last year, 2012 is already mapped out to be another stellar year for JLS, as they prepare for their upcoming Fourth Dimension Tour, which sees the group headlining another national arena tour throughout March and April.
