British singer Imogen Heap performed a special concert in Christchurch, New Zealand, last night to raise money for a school extensively damaged in the devastating earthquake that killed over 180 people and destroyed the livelihoods of thousands on February 22.

The acoustic concert saw the singer perform alone at her piano to raise funds for the Unlimited Paenga Tawhiti High School in Christchurch in front of a sell-out crowd.

After laughing off what she called a “comedy start” to the gig when the smoke machine set the fire alarms off, Imogen played a set that included songs from her new album, Lifeline.

“Really enjoyed tonight’s fundraiser gig in Christchurch,” she said after the show. “Thanks to all those who came + supported.”

The show was also broadcast live via webcast.
