Led Zeppelins Little Sister Deborah Bonham & Paul
Deborah Bonham and her band were the Special Guests on Paul Rodgers UK Tour for the first six dates. On the last night before a sold out crowd in
Nottingham Rodgers invited Deborah up to sing "Can't Get Enough". He chose
this song because it was the first song that Deborah remembers hearing Paul sing when she was just 12. "Deborah has the same sweetness of spirit that he brother John possessed plus she's a fantastic singer who like her brother has great rhythm". Paul Rodgers. Not many realize this but John Bonham was also a good singer and did sing backing vocals on a number of Led Zeppelin's songs.

Last year in March when Queen + Paul Rodgers performed in South Africa at Nelson Madela's 46664 concert to raise AIDS Awareness, they met The African Children's Choir. The ACC are ambassadors for 11 million African children who are AIDS orphans! Started in 1984 by Ray Barnett today there are schools established in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and South Africa where thousands of children benefit from the work of the Choir. The choir performed with Queen + Paul and sang "We Are The Champions". Paul was touched by their sweetness and braveness, as all are AIDS orphans and gave each of them an English dictionary. This was very exciting to the children because they are all learning to speak english.Plus each of the children were given a new pair of trainers (sneakers) which they desperately needed. This caused great excitement too.
They perform around the world singing and dancing and most recently performed on Live8 in London and have several CD recordings to their credit. Visit www.africanchildrenschoir.com." If ever you get a chance to see and hear The African Children's Choir I guarantee your heart will be uplifted" Paul Rodgers.
