Sir Paul joins festive karaoke session with Great Ormond St kids

19 DECEMBER 2007

Liverpudlian legend Sir Paul McCartney proved he's in tune with the musical tastes of the younger generation this week when he joined in a karaoke session at the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital's annual Christmas party. As well as playing the mandolin, the former Beatle enthusiastically sang along to the S Club 7 hit song Don't Stop Movin'.

"Sir Paul had everyone singing along," said one parent at the event in a London's Coram Fields, a seven-acre playground for children, which had been decked out with fake snow elves and reindeer. "The children were thrilled, but it was even more of a treat for the parents."

The big-hearted singer took time to chat and joke with some of the 1,500 children, including nine-year-old Milly Pyne who was recently honoured at the Children of Courage Awards.

He greeted the brave little girl from Ulverston, Cumbria, who underwent surgery this year, with a huge hug and cheekily pretended to take a bite out of her medal. Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly and her fellow TV presenter husband Vernon Kay were also among the celebrities bringing Christmas cheer to the festivities.
