Hillsborough Charity Single Recording Gets Underway
The recording of the Hillsborough charity single is underway and TalkSPORT went behind the scenes for a sneak peak at some of the faces taking part.
Football legends including Alan Hansen, Kenny Dalglish and Peter Reid took to the mic along with comedian John Bishop and The Farm member Peter Hooton. Robbie Williams and Paloma Faith were some of the first artists to put their vocals down for the single, the idea for which came after Everton played The Hollies 1969 hit ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ in an emotional tribute to the 96 victims of Hillsborough following the release of the independent panel’s report.
The aim of the single is to raise money for the families of the victims of the disaster to help with legal costs in the on-going battle to bring those responsible to justice.
Steve Rotheram, MP for Walton and long-standing Hillsborough campaigner, said: 'I am proud to announce that a group of some of the biggest UK recording artists are coming together to record 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' to support the Hillsborough families fight for justice.
'Whilst we are confident that the campaign for truth and justice is nearing a conclusion, for 23 years the bereaved Hillsborough families have carried the eternal flame of hope that we would one day see those responsible brought to justice.
'All profits from this CD will go towards assisting with any legal costs incurred in that fight. The families have suffered enough.'
The single will be released on December 17th and go head to head with the X-Factor winner for the Christmas Number One spot in the music charts.
