A London singer is to attempt to perform the highest gig in the world when he scales a peak in the Mount Everest range.
Oz Bayldon will be joined by a handful of other artists who will trek 18,000 feet to the summit of Mera Peak in Nepal.
The 40-year-old singer hopes to raise £45,000 for the upkeep of an orphanage his charity Music 4 Children built in Kathmandu.
Funds will also go to the charity's base, The White Lion in Streatham, which helps disadvantaged youngsters. The musician is originally from Australia but now lives in Streatham.
Mr Bayldon, who is married with a daughter, sets off next Monday. The date of the gig has not been determined as it will depend on how long the trek to the summit takes.
He added: "We have to play for 15 minutes to get the world record."
