Express FM were thinking about unusual ways in which they could support this years appeal, and now you can hear it.
They have teamed up with the News Instant Star winner, opera singer Jennifer Parker Lummis, and the University of Portsmouth recording studios, to produce the much loved song Hushabye Mountain. It is now available as a download from the Express FM website where you can also follow the links to make a donation to Children In Need.
Express FM Operations Director Cheryl Buggy, said, "Jennifer has a truly lovely voice, she is a very talented singer and Express hope the single makes loads of money for the appeal."
"Jennifer explains why she wanted to record the song "I am a Mum of 2 beautiful little girls. Every night when I put them to bed I sing Hushabye mountain to them and hope that they have sweet dreams. I wish that every child was a lucky as they are. For Them health, a home and a family who love and cherish them are things they take for granted.
"For some children these are the things that dreams are made of. That's why I wanted to record this song and raise money for Children in Need. Children in Need helps every child in every situation in the UK. I wouldn't have been able to do this without the help of Cheryl Buggy and Express FM. I met Cheryl when she was Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and when I asked if she could help me do this she was only too willing to do so.
"I would also like to thank Ameritz for letting my use the backing track and the University of Portsmouth. So please download my song and donate as much as you can so together we can give sweet dreams to every child in need."
