BBC Radio 2 announces Rylan’s 24 hour karaoke challenge for BBC Children in Need
Radio 2 presenter and bona fide karaoke king, Rylan Clark-Neal will sing in a 24 hour non-stop karaoke extravaganza to raise money for BBC Children in Need 2019.
The challenge will kick off at the end of the Zoe Ball Breakfast show at 9am on Tuesday 12 November, with Rylan belting out karaoke classics through to 9am on Wednesday 13 November.
The marathon sing-a-long will take place at the Radio 2 studios in Wogan House, London and be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds, and streamed live in vision on the BBC Red Button where viewers can watch Rylan and his guests perform. Viewers will also be able to send in messages of support for Rylan, which will scroll across the screen, along with details of how to donate via text. Audiences will be able to donate to support Rylan via text donation and through the BBC Children in Need website.
Expect surprise appearances from famous faces and voices across the day, as they drop in to Wogan House and join former X Factor contestant Rylan in song, as he raises funds for BBC Children in Need.
Rylan says: “My love of karaoke is absolutely no secret and so I’m incredibly excited to take to the microphone and raise as much as I possibly can for BBC Children in Need. Tune in to BBC Radio 2 or via BBC Red Button from 9.30am on the 12 November to hear me - and my special guests - serenade the Radio 2 family with as many karaoke classics as I can fit into 24 hours. And don't forget to donate!”
