The Academy of Contemporary Music’s (ACM) Electron Choir got the once in a lifetime opportunity to sing alongside pop legend Rod Stewart.

The opportunity arose after BBC 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny wrote a Christmas song Please Don’t Give Me Anything For Christmas after interviewing Rod on his radio show.
