2009-11-24

Celebrity Rockaoke, Moho Live, Manchester - 8th december 2009

Television stars are to front a live rock band for the first time in their careers.

And clear the Christmas decks for a battle of the bad boys, when Emmerdale's Cain Dingle (*Jeff Hordley*) and Coronation Street's jailbird John Stape (*Graeme Hawley*) go head to head as DJ's for a night.

The star studded get together is to help raise much needed funds for BLESMA (British Limbless Ex Servicemen Association) and Macmillan Cancer Support, with stars from stage and screen coming together for one night only.

The celebrities will belt out rock, pop, funk and punk, followed by the DJ showdown at Manchester's Moho Live venue, organised by Vital Management on December 8th 2009 .

Confirmed singers on the night include from Coronation Street: **Michelle Keegan* *(Tina McIntyre), *Brooke Vincent* (Sophie Webster), **Shobna* *Gulati** (Sunita Alahan),*Lucian Laviscount* (Ben Richardson), **Sasha Parkinson** (Sian Powers), *Emma* *Edmondson* (Mel Morton) and from Hollyoaks: *Gerard McCarthy*

Presenting and attending VIP's include Coronation Street beauties **Helen Flanagan* *(Rosie Webster) and *Nikki Patel* (Amber Alahan) and Hollyoaks hunk *Anthony* *Quinlan*.

Actress Michelle Keegan said: “I am really excited to be performing, but also a little nervous as I have only sung at home or at Karaoke with my friends. I think I will bring them all along for moral support!”

And Helen Flanagan said: “ The charities that will benefit from this special night do such an incredible job,and they really need support. I am happy to get involved and can't wait to see all my friends from Corrie take to the stage.”

Organiser Laura Graham from Vital Management and Public Relations said:“This event will be totally unique and I hope all the guests will get in the mood for Christmas as well as raise some money for two charities that are very close to my heart.

“The support I have had from the stars and various companies who want to get involved has been amazing.

Top Backing band “Rockaoke” have played with some of the UK's biggest stars. They performed with BBC Radio 1's *Chris Moyles* for his summer tour and stars such as *Justin Lee Collins, Peter Andre, James Corden, Davina McCall and the Kaiser Chief's Ricky Wilson.*

Laura added: “It's the chance for people to live the dream…singing with a live band, with all the equipment and technology you get with a major concert."

Michelle Keegan will sing for charity

Michelle Keegan has turned rock chick ahead of taking to the microphone for a night of singing for charity.

The actress, who plays Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street, donned spike-heeled ankle boots, a blue minidress and a Flying V guitar ahead of joining a host of other soap stars to sing karaoke, accompanied by live band Rockaoke.

Michelle's co-stars Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster), Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster), Shobna Gulati (Sunita Alahan), Sasha Parkinson (Sian Powers), Nikki Patel (Amber Alahan), and Graeme Hawley (John Stape) will also show off their vocals at the event, which raises money for Blesma (British Limbless Ex-Servicemen Association) and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Other stars getting involved include Emmerdale's Jeff Hordley (Cain Dingle), Hollyoaks actors Andrew Moss (Rhys Ashworth) Gerard McCarthy (Kris Fisher) and Helen Pearson (Frankie Osborne), along with some surprise guests.

They will be singing a mix of pop, rock, punk and soul classics.

Keegan said: "Rockaoke is going to be so much fun and I can't wait to see all the various stars performing and enjoying the night.

"Rockaoke is a newish concept and the band who are playing have performed on stage with some pretty big stars such as Peter Andre, James Corden, Justin Lee Collins and Davina McCall so yes, I am a bit nervous!"

She added: "I have not decided what I will sing yet, but it will probably be a pop song with a rock edge, and I might have to rope in a friend or two for moral support!"

Charity Celebrity Rockaoke takes place at Manchester indie club Moho Live from 8pm on December 8.
