2 d Newsdesk Lewis Capaldi fans are being invited to bid on one of the star’s most memorable outfits in an online auction in aid of Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).
The 24-year-old Scottish hitmaker posed in the iconic USA-themed onesie and comical gold sunglasses ensemble on his personal Instagram page to mark his power ballad, ‘Someone You Loved’ storming the US Billboard singles chart in 2019.
The hilarious stars and stripes spectacle clearly delighted fans as the post was ‘liked’ 618,000 times and received more than 16,000 comments.
Lewis stated at the time: “I think we can all agree this means I’m well on my way to becoming America’s sweetheart and I for one am over the moon. x”
The Whitburn superstar’s prediction came true a few weeks later when he became the first Scottish solo artist to reach Number 1 in the US in nearly 40 years, the previous being Sheena Easton with Morning Train (Nine To Five) back in 1981.
After securing the top spot, Lewis told Billboard magazine: "I feel like America's sweetheart, at least for a moment. I feel like I'm the sweetest heart in all of the US of A."
‘Someone You Loved’ was hugely successful in Britain too, spending seven weeks at Number 1 in the UK Singles Chart and also topped the charts in Canada, Ireland, Malaysia and the Czech Republic.
Lewis’s management company spokesman, Alfie Lawrance from Interlude Artists said: “On behalf of Interlude I can confirm the onesie and sunglasses are genuine clothing items worn by Lewis and we are happy for CHAS to auction them to help raise funds for the amazing work they do helping children with life-shortening illnesses across Scotland.”
CHAS High Profile Events Assistant, Louise Jordan said: “We are thrilled and privileged that Lewis has chosen to donate this exclusive, fan-favourite outfit to CHAS to help raise vital funds for children with life-shortening illnesses and their families across Scotland. As this is one of Lewis’s most popular Instagram outfits ever, it would make a fantastic collector’s item so we’re sure the auction will attract lots of bids from dedicated fans!”
