George Ezra has announced a special, one-off gig in aid of mental health charity, Mind.
The singer will play Londonâ€™s Union Chapel on December 8, and will be joined by a number of hand-picked performers, who will be announced shortly.
Tickets will be available via ballot â€“ fans can register for the ballot here,from 9am Friday November 17. Registration closes at 5pm Wednesday November 22.
â€œThe idea behind this event all started on tour earlier this year where we were collecting for Mind at each show,â€ explains George.
â€œMy supporters and fans helped to raise over two thousand pounds in just over two weeks, which Iâ€™m hugely grateful for.
â€œFollowing the response, I thought it would be great to round off the year with a special event in aid of Mind
â€œThe Union Chapel is one of the most beautiful venues to play in London and the cause is a charity that I believe are doing truly great things. The night will be a warm and cosy celebration of music and community.â€
Ezra discussed the gig donations in an interview with AioMp3,saying: â€œFor the last three years Iâ€™ve donated to Mind monthly. Playing these shows, weâ€™re in a position where we have a room full of people every night. Why not try and do something? Iâ€™ve been counting the donations every night from these buckets â€“ itâ€™s very relaxing!â€
The singer shared the video for single â€˜Donâ€™t Matter Nowâ€™ back in June â€“ which he revealed is about his battles with anxiety.
â€œI wrote â€˜Donâ€™t Matter Nowâ€™ to remind myself, primarily, that itâ€™s okay to want to take yourself away from situations from time to time,â€ said Ezra.
â€œIn time I realised that it wasnâ€™t just me that was suffering from anxiety, it wasnâ€™t just me that was confused, and that thereâ€™s no harm in not always understanding whatâ€™s going on in the world around you. â€œ
