Choir pips Justin Bieber to top UK Xmas song

London – The National Health Service Choir has beaten Justin Bieber to capture Britain’s official Christmas No 1 song – and he’s OK with that.

The Canadian pop star’s Love Yourself was ahead earlier this week – but then Bieber tweeted that he wanted fans to “do the right thing” and boost the charity single to the coveted spot.

The choir’s mash-up A Bridge Over You on Friday finished nearly 31 000 copies ahead of Bieber in the singles competition – although he still commands three of the top five spots.

The choir said “it’s a brilliant celebration for the NHS across the country, so well done and thank you everyone”. Proceeds will go to several health-related charities.

The NHS, founded in 1948, is a source of national pride for many Britons.
