Rochdale singing star Lisa Stansfield was getting guests into the festive spirit as she headlined Key 103's annual Christmas charity bash.
Lisa got guests up and dancing as she belted out her global mega-hit All Around The World at the Key 103 Cash For Kids Mission Christmas lunch, the radio station's annual fundraiser for local children living in poverty.
The lunch, at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club, was hosted by Key's roster of DJs including breakfast hosts Mike Toolan and Chelsea Norris.
Lisa, 47, got guests dancing with her past classics as well as her new uptempo song Can't Dance filling the dance floor.
And the singing star has told of how her decision to record her long-awaited new album back home in Rochdale was entirely altruistic too.
Lisa, who enjoyed global music success when she burst onto the scene in the late 80s, said: "Rochdale has not had a very good reputation for a while, with some of the stories coming out about grooming and paedophiles, but it's such a small minority, a handful of people. "The area has been in decline with shops closing and the economy and so i just thought if I could bring investment to Rochdale and support the area that's a good thing, it's something close to my heart."
