Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Chart-topping singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor fronted our Christmas Jumper Day 2017 campaign, visiting Delhi and Rajasthan to meet children and families involved in our projects. She became a Save the Children ambassador in early 2018.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller’s huge number one single Groovejet and then followed it up with Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor.

Sophie's music is a mixture of mainstream pop, disco, and 1980s electronic influences and she has recorded 7 studio albums to date. After supporting Save the Children for several years, Sophie became an official Ambassador early in 2018.

After visiting India in 2017, Sophie said: "I met so many special people who are benefitting from the work Save the Children is doing and I was really struck by the intelligence and sensitivity of the projects being carried out.

"All the girls I met who are working to stop their own child marriages want equal rights, they want to be treated the same as boys in their family and they want to be able to make their own decisions."

Since then, Sophie has played an integral part of our flagship fundraising event ‘Night of Hits’ as a committee member and performer helping us raise over £1.24 million on the night.
