I said I’d pop up again and let you know when the Military Wives’ Choir single, Wherever You Are is out, but since the ladies have been having a fantastic amount of press coverage and celebrity support, I don’t know as I have to let you know!
In any case, the single can be pre-ordered for £1.99 from Amazon and it will be released on the 19th December, so two weeks today.
I think I’ve been struck by how dignified the choir has been with the talk of a Christmas number 1 – the media seem to want to make it a pitched battle with the X Factor winner, but the choir and Gareth Malone have again and again stated that the aim here has been to raise the most amount of money possible for the Royal British Legion and the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) who do a tremendous amount of good work on behalf of serving Military personnel and their families.
So please do think about buying the single. I previously linked to the choir’s live performance at the Festival of Remembrance, but have added their official video below which premiered last week on The One Show.
It only then remains for me to say Good Luck to the choir and cross fingers for them to go all the way! Now, I’m off to preorder my copy :0)
