B Positive choir

The B Positive choir, created by NHS Blood and Transplant, is made up of people whose lives are affected by the lifesaving power of blood. Our members include blood donors and blood recipients, people who have blood related medical conditions such as sickle cell, our families, friends and people who work with blood. 

After forming in 2017, the choir immediately made a name for themselves at the MOBO Awards. Watch their performance at the MOBO Awards

The choir followed this up by making it through to the final of Britain's Got Talent as the wildcard act for 2018. They inspired everyone with their rendition of 'Rise Up' in the final.

Continuing to perform

Since their performance on Britain’s Got Talent, the choir has continued to perform at events across the UK to inspire people to give blood.

Highlights include performing at:

  • the annual Commonwealth Service in Westminster Abbey, in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen
  • the NHS70 celebrations on BBC Breakfast
  • the NHS Windrush 70 event in Manchester 
  • the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures 2018 on BBC 4 
  • a service at St Pancras Church

About our campaign

The B Positive choir wants to inspire more people to join the donors who save lives and keep this country going. We need new donors every day to donate blood to help ensure patients in need receive the best possible match. Rise up and register to donate now.

Your response so far has been fantastic. Please make a booking to donate later this year if you can't get a slot soon. We have to carefully balance our stock of blood groups but every donation matters. Find out more about our need for specific blood groups.
