Justin Bieber has teamed up with a choir of London health care workers for a special version of his song “Holy.”
On Sunday, the choir released a snippet of the new version, which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.
“It’s great to be reunited with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir, as we share a fun bit of UK chart history together,” Bieber said in a statement. “Especially in these difficult times, I’m humbled to team up with them for a charity single that will benefit NHS workers on the frontlines of this pandemic and pay tribute to their unbelievable dedication.”
Profits from the single will be split between NHS Charities Together, which represents over 230 NHS charities, and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity.
We’re beyond excited to finally share the news!!! We’re back together with our old friend @justinbieber, singing our hearts out on this new version of his gorgeous song ‘Holy’, all to raise money for @NHSCharities and @LG_NHS!

Back in 2015, Justin’s “Love Yourself” and the choir’s “A Bridge Over You” were both vying for the top spot on the U.K.’s Christmas charts. Justin tweeted his support for the choir to reach #1 instead saying, “So for 1 week it’s ok not to be #1. Let’s do the right thing & help them win. It’s Christmas. @Choir_NHS good luck.”
