Charity Concert
Liverpool Empire
Sunday 19th December 2004

Glenn Carter as Jesus Christ
Christmas is a time of giving and the touring cast of Jesus Christ Superstar entered into the spirit with panache and professionalism with this one off charity extravaganza.

Donating their time on a usual day off for free, the concert - organised by Liverpool girl, Emma Dears (Mary Magdalene in Superstar) - ran through a variety show songs including those from Beauty And The Beast, Chicago, Oliver & Les Miserables alongside poetry recitals, Beatles Medleys, and good old Rock 'N' Roll numbers.

Hosted by Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks) and Billy Butler (Radio Merseyside), the show was staged for the benefit of North West Cancer Research & the Radio Merseyside Trust and was festive frolic of feel-good fun, which raised £15,000 on the night for worthy causes.

Highlights were many, but in particular A Simple Christmas Wish sung by Martin Callaghan (Herod) was hilarious. Errol Flynn performed by Emma Dears, Do You Hear The People Sing / Stars / One More Day from Les Miserables sung by the entire cast, He Ain't Heavy sung by Glenn Carter (Jesus) and The Choir of The Elizabeth Hill School performing a selection of carols, will also warm the audience long into the harshness of the coming winter.

To finish the show, the ensemble performed a moving rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, which I'm sure those who attended are sure to do now that they have managed - just for a little while - to forget the modern day hassles the season can bring.
