'Hallelujah is our Song'
Carol's new Charity Single, in aid of Cancer Research UK
(Latest update: I have raised over £1,340 already, through people's kind donations, and sales of the CD.......... THANK YOU SO MUCH!)
"Many of the songs I write, begin with a seed idea, which sits there germinating in my head, often for weeks, before it eventually becomes a full blown song!
The seed for my latest song was planted back in May last year, as I read an article in the Malvern Gazette, telling the story of Denise Inge (the wife of the Bishop of Worcester).....who tragically lost her battle with cancer on Easter Sunday. When she heard the news that she had cancer, her response to it was....."Whatever happens......Hallelujah is our song!"
Those words literally seemed to jump off the page, and hit me to the core......my best friend Gill, was battling the same disease, and I knew that this phrase was going to be in a song that I would write for her!
(It was one of those get up in the middle of the night inspired songs), and when completed, I knew I wanted to put it out as a charity single.
To help boost funds, we've compiled a CD with the song, plus some bonus tracks from my current albums.....
All of the songs on the CD have a special meaning to me.... In particular, "You make me Feel" - "Everlasting arms" - "In your Eyes" and "Don't Wait" ..... all written in memory of some special people.
We feel so helpless when cancer attacks those we love and care for.....this is a small way that I'm trying to help.....
Please take a look at my CD's page to order physical CD, or download the song on itunes, or visit my 'Just Giving' page if you would like to donate to the charity.
New album soon.........I have begun work on the new album: 'Returning'... will be available for release probably early May! This one may have a slightly different musical flavour, having recently met a fantastic pedal steel player......watch this space......x
