BRIT Award winning artist and producer Mark Ronson gave a Priceless Surprise to six of his biggest fans when he met them in London at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, before inviting them to record a cover of hit record 'Uptown Funk'.

As part of MasterCard's campaign in celebration of this year's BRIT Awards, Ronson's fans were selected from YouTube for the quality and originality he saw in their covers of the track before inviting them to the London studio.

Under the impression they'd be recording their version of the song for a documentary about Ronson, they were given the surprise of a lifetime when Ronson appeared in person, there to meet his fans and produce the cover.

Vocalist Anna Shields features in the cover with her duet guitarist Blair Crichton, ukulele player John Atkins, cello and violin playing sisters Laura and Sarah Ayoub and guitarist Ross Campbell.

Mark comments: "It was brilliant to bring together six unique talents and produce a new cover of my track. It's an honour that such talented people are interested in my music, and I loved working with the group - they shared such a good energy, and we created something special. It's the first time I've ever produced a cover of one of my own songs, and I really enjoyed it."

Mark Ronson will this year battle it out at the BRITs in the British Male Solo Artist and British Producer of the Year categories.

The BRIT Awards 2016 with MasterCard take place at The O2 in London on Wednesday, February 24 and will exclusively broadcast live on ITV.
