A seriously ill child from Mirfield has been living the dream after performing live on stage at Wembley with Nicole Scherzinger.

Niamh Biltcliffe, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, was one of 14 youngsters to sing with the international popstar and X Factor judge at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Niamh is part of the Rays of Sunshine Wish choir, a group of 14 brave and inspirational seriously ill children who have all had their wishes granted by the charity that grants wishes for children living with serious of life-limiting illness, across the UK.

Rays of Sunshine is currently in the process of granting Niamh’s greatest wish, which is to go to Disney World Florida.

During the Wembley gig, Niamh and the group sang ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’.

Also performing at the star-studded event were Fleur East, Shawn Mendes, Conor Maynard, Louisa Johnson, Lawson and James TW.

Jane Sharpe, CEO of Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity, said: “The event was more sensational than we could have ever hoped.

“Looking out onto the audience and seeing so many of our wish families enjoying the show certainly made all the hard work worthwhile.

“We are so grateful to each and every one of the artists for giving up their time to perform and to SSE for supporting the event and making it possible for us to allow so many of our beneficiaries to attend.”
