To celebrate its 75th Anniversary and its unique history, the PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund was proud to present a very special fund-raising concert.

On October 25th at 7.30pm, Lee and a whole host of stars performed for the Fund at London's Royal Albert Hall.

PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund is a registered charity that provides assistance to members and ex-members of the Performing Rights Society and their families.

In a piece on Community Newswire Lee has said of the concert:

"I'm thrilled to be involved. The show will be quite unique and as it's for such a good cause I immediately agreed when they asked me to take part.

The PRS for Music Members Benevolent Fund does such good work for its community of musicians and artists, it's a terrific role model. This fund does such an important job and has helped so many people in times of stress, whether it's illness, hard times or just a one off crisis.

On the night I'll be singing a Marc Bolan number which is great honour since Marc had an outstanding catalogue of songs and left the fund a share of his royalties in order to help his fellow musicians."

Lee opened the second half of this fabulous concert, singing not one, but two Marc Bolan numbers - 20th Century Boy and I Love to Boogie - and rocking the house!
