On May 11, Rag’n’Bone Man and P!nk put on a truly special show at this year’s BRIT Awards. They teamed up with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choirs for a soulful version of their latest single, “Anywhere Away From Here.” The performance took place with an impressive theatre-inspired backdrop, with Rag’n’Bone Man centre stage as P!nk emerged through a digital screen.
The singers were then joined by both of the choirs for an incredibly moving rendition of the track that paid tribute to the strength and support of our NHS and reflected on the difficult times we’ve faced this year. The performance closed the show, marking the end of this year’s BRIT Awards ceremony for another year.
Other performers of the night included Arlo Parks, BRIT rising star Griff, The Weeknd, Coldplay, Olivia Rodrigo, best female solo artist Dua Lipa, and Headie One.
Dua Lipa just won best female solo artist at this year’s BRIT Awards, and her acceptance speech was pretty memorable. After a solid performance medley of all her best-ever tracks that was basically a tribute to the train (with Lipa donning head-to-toe Vivienne Westwood, of course), Lipa took things one step further: calling out Boris Johnson himself to pay NHS workers fairly. We told you it was big.
After winning her award, Lipa said that “last time I was up here, accepting this award in 2018, I said that I wanted to see more women on these stages, and I feel so proud that three years later, we’re seeing that happen, and it really is such an honour to be a part of this wave of women in music.”
She went on to mention the NHS, after dedicating her second award to Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, a British nurse and lecturer, telling viewers that “it’s very good to clap for them, but we need to pay them, and so I think what we should do is we should all give a massive, massive round of applause, and give Boris a message that we all support a fair pay rise for our frontline.”
