Since 1999, Rhythmix is the name of a music charity based in South-East England, which works with disadvantaged children.
For more information about their work see http://www.rhythmixmusic.org.uk
The name was also briefly used by the four-piece girlband now known as Little Mix, made up of London barmaid Jesy Nelson (20), High Wycombe waitress Leigh-Anne Pinnock (19), and Newcastle students Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall (both 18).
The girls decided to change their name when they became aware of the prior existence of the charity, saying "we decided to change our name to Little Mix as we do not want to cause any problems for the charity".
The band was formed at the "boot camp" stage of the 2011 season of UK television series The X-Factor. All the singers had auditioned for the show as soloists.
