Amelia Lily to perform at Legends match

The X-Factor finalist, whose latest single 'Party Over' was released yesterday, will entertain the crowds alongside boy-band JLS during a special pre-match concert at the Red Heart United Legends match, to help raise money for Manchester United Foundation.

The 18-year-old, who was mentored by Kelly Rowland and came third in the 2011 X-Factor, has enjoyed chart success with a string of top-10 hits such as You Bring Me Joy and Shut Up.

Amelia commented, "I’m so excited to play at such a famous stadium in front of so many people.  It sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic event and I’m really looking forward to being a part of it."

Red Heart United will offer a full day out for the whole family and will include special entertainment around the stadium. In addition to JLS and Amelia Lily, further musical performances will be announced in the coming weeks.

In keeping with the two clubs’ origins, there will also be the chance to try your hand at some Spanish and British themed games as well as sample traditional cuisine from both nations.

All proceeds from Red Heart United will go to the Manchester United Foundation, to fund projects that help young people in disadvantaged areas of Greater Manchester.
