Former Westlife star Shane Filan recently took some time out of his busy schedule to visit Nordoff Robbins' London Centre to check out the music therapy work that takes place there.

Shane sat in on a session with two children, Billiejean and Olivia, from the Richard Cloudesley School in Islington. Both girls have cerebral palsy and Billijean is registered blind.

Shane was very moved by the session which was led by music therapists, Donald Wetherick and Ergina Sampathianaki.

Shane said, "I’ve sung all my life but I never realised the power of music.

“Music is one of those things where you go into your own world and relax. It’s helping people get better, helping people improve their situation through music. It makes you feel happy or sad or reminds you of something, whether it was 20 years ago or yesterday.”
