The Daily Mail has announced that Cynthia Erivo (I Can't Sing / The Color Purple, pictured right), David Bedella (Sweeney Todd / In The Heights) and Oliver Tompsett (White Christmas / We Will Rock You) will star in The Night of Electric Voices at the London Coliseum on Sunday 1st March 2015.

They join the previously announced Adam Pascal (RENT / Memphis), David Michael Johnson (We Will Rock You) and Kerry Ellis (Wicked / Oliver!) who is known as the first lady of the West End.

UPDATE: It has also been confirmed that the line-up will include: Ricardo Afonso (Women On The Verge / Top Hat), Daniel Boys (Spamalot / Avenue Q), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables / The War of the Worlds) and Tiffany Graves (Chicago / Tonight’s The Night).

UPDATE: The West End Frame Award winning Lee Mead, who currently stars in Casualty, has also joined the line-up.

The event, hosted by Tim Rice, will raise money for the Alan Jay Lerner Fund for cancer research at the Royal Marsden Hospital. Presenting a night of musical theatre, the show will star top performers from London and New York alongside the soloists of the City of London Philharmonic and the West End Chorus.

Since 1999 The Night of 1000 Voices has delighted capacity audiences whilst supporting various charities. In 2015, The Night of Electric Voices will be a celebration of rock musicals and will move for the first time to London’s largest theatre.

With musical directors Stuart Morley, Kevin Amos and David Firman, The Night of Electric Voices will again be devised and directed by Hugh Wooldridge.
