The NHS choir that beat Justin Bieber to Christmas No 1 is to be the subject of a new film.

 

The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir’s charity single, A Bridge Over You, narrowly beat Bieber’s Love Yourself in December after the singer asked his 72 million Twitter followers to support it.

 

The film will tell the individual stories of the choir’s 32 members and how they helped get the song to No 1. Rights have been optioned by producer Julia Verdin, best known for Al Pacino’s Shakespeare adaptation The Merchant of Venice.

 

The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir last month signed to Decca Records, which is owned by Bieber’s label Universal. A debut album, Something Inside So Strong, is due out on 3 June, with proceeds going to the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS trust.
