TWO 1980s pop stars are heading to Leigh to perform at a charity ball in aid of children fighting life-threatening conditions.

Sonia, who had a number one hit with You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You, represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest and has appeared on numerous TV shows, will grace a stage at Leigh Sports Village on Saturday, October 14.

Fellow former member of the Stock, Aitken and Waterman record label Nathan Moore, who was the lead singer of British boyband Brother Beyond and went on to have a successful singing and acting career, will also help to transport music fans back to the 80s.

The charity ball will also boast a variety comedy performance from BAFTA-nominated actor Adam Moss, who is hosting the event, a three-course dinner and a charity auction.

The money raised will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Mum-of-one Sonia, 46, said: “When I found out it was for Make-A-Wish I instantly wanted to get on board.

“It will be a great night for everyone to relive their youth and raise money at the same time.

“I have been on tour since I signed my first music contract at the age of 17 and I still love it.

“I also do a lot of gigs with Nathan and we get on great and will put on a good show on the night.”

Dad-of-one Nathan, 52, who also used to be in Simon Cowell’s Worlds Apart boyband, said: “It will be great to perform on the night and raise money for such a good cause.

“I know Sonia really well and have worked with her so many times over the years, and she is still great on stage.

“These nights are always great as the audience come out in fancy dress of all the idols from the 1980s. Hopefully that will be the same at this gig.

“It will be a night of fun as soon as people walk through the door.”

Tickets are £45 per person and there are also sponsorship packages available.
