07/12/2015

A Christmas Charity Single from the Musical ‘Matilda’ featuring former Westlife star, Shane Filan will benefit Children Across Northern Ireland.....we kindly ask you to help us make it reach No.1 in the Irish Charts.

The proceeds from the worldwide download and CD sales of the song ‘When I Grow Up’ will go to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and the Children's Medical Research Foundation, Crumlin in Dublin. Both hospital's look after Children across Northern Ireland and Ireland.

The Team producing the Charity Single are aiming to beat X-factor to Christmas No1 in the Irish Charts.

The song ‘When I Grow Up’ is from the Grammy Award nominated Musical ‘Matilda’ by Tim Minchin the Australian Musician and Comedian, Tim has given the project his full backing and has kindly post public messages of support to his millions of social media followers.

Shane Filan recorded the single at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin supported by ten-year-old singer Grace Lee, (Grace from the Isle of Man has had ten heart procedures for Congenital Heart Disease and suffers from Chronic Lung Disease).

Part of the money raised will go to the ‘Helping Hand charity’ which was established to provide the equipment, to fund research, education and to support the immediate needs of children and their parents at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

The idea for the charity single came from Music Producer Stephen Macken, who teamed up with Tim Minchin, the Association of Irish Musical Societies and Shane Filan.

The single can be downloaded on iTunes Amazon, Google Play or purchased in HMV stores across Northern Ireland and Xtra-vision stores across Ireland.
