GOSH has The X Factor

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity is the proud beneficiary of The X Factor 2013 winner's single, along with Together for Short Lives.

The two X Factor finalists will perform their prospective winner’s singles live during The X Factor’s exciting final at Wembley Arena, with the song available to download once the winner is crowned on 15 December.

Syco will donate 100 per cent of its profits from the sales of each CD single and download to be shared equally by the charities Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Together for Short Lives. This donation will be at least £1 for each CD sold in the UK and at least 20p for each download sold in the UK.

Simon Cowell said: “Both Together for Short Lives and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity are really important charities. Every day they do inspiring work and help a load of kids and their families, all of which need their expertise and support. I have been lucky enough to see first-hand the great work that both of these charities do and I am thrilled that we can do something to help by donating the sales of The X Factor winner's single to them both. Thank you in advance to everyone who will help.”

Tim Johnson, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity Chief Executive said: “We’re thrilled to be chosen to benefit from this year's X Factor winner’s single. The proceeds from the single will make a huge difference in helping Great Ormond Street Hospital to continue to provide the very best care for its young patients from across the UK. 

"The children, families and staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital are so excited to be a part of such a popular show that really captures the nation’s imagination. On their behalf, I would like to thank The X Factor for inviting us to be part of something so special.”

The single will be the sixth charity release from The X Factor and the second charity winner’s single following James Arthur’s million-selling release ‘Impossible’ last year, which raised funds for Together for Short Lives.
