Pop star Jamelia recently visited Birmingham with her two children. While in the city, the three participated in the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The ceremony marked the beginning of the yearly Light Up a Child’s Life fundraising campaign. The fundraiser encourages individuals to purchase a light on the Christmas tree in support of the hospital’s efforts to accommodate children who are admitted.
A Birmingham native, Jamelia is aware of the hospital’s work and thought it necessary to give back to her childhood community. As the singer states, “I’ve been all too aware of the fantastic work that Birmingham Children’s Hospital does and so I was honoured and I jumped at the chance. Its important for my children, and myself, to do something and give something back to put a smile on the faces of people especially at this time of year.”
Jamelia recently released her album Rebel, and is currently working on a new project. The pop star has two daughters, Tiani,6, and Teja,10.
