John Humphries, aged 72, from Coseley, raised more than £1,000 last August when artists live streamed a show from their homes, which was then put onto his Facebook page.

Now he plans to repeat the charity fundraising with a show that will be streamed from noon on Sunday and is expected to last about three-and-a-half hours.

The show will see John, known as Humph, singing and playing music by The Shadows and a variety of other artists.

Colin James, with whom John has formed a duo for shows during the past 50 years, will play country music.

His son, also called John, aged 36, from Dudley, an actor who performs Freddie Mercury tributes, will be directing the event.

Top of the bill will be Andy James who will be paying tribute to Elvis Presley.

John said: “We will also be featuring female vocalist K-Low, Paul Thomson, an Everly Brothers tribute act, male vocalist Phil Aaron and rock ‘n roll vocalist P J Parker.”
