A song to lift your heart this Christmas


    Young singers from London aim to help sick children with a brand new Christmas tune

    December is well and truly upon us and in the spirit of giving back, the children of music school Music’all in Parsons Green have recorded and released a new, original Christmas song to support children in need at Chelsea Children’s Hospital.

    The school’s main choir includes singers between the ages of eight and 14 years, and their hit Brand New Day (Peace on Earth) could even make the number-one spot in the official charts this Christmas.

    The children’s hospital charity, based within Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, raises money to care for little ones and their families, and buys urgently-needed medical equipment which wouldn’t otherwise be available. The charity is run by Rebecca McLoughlin, whose child was a patient at the hospital.

    “We are really happy that the children of Music’all want to help us,” she says. “Every penny will go towards helping very sick children and babies receive the care that they need.”

    “The children really want to make a difference,” adds Rae Evans, composer and choir director at Music’all. “This is their local hospital, it’s a very personal cause, and it is for me as well. Without fantastic doctors, nurses and midwives, my daughter wouldn’t be here today.”

    The choir’s first live performance of the song will take place at the Chelsea Children’s Hospital Christmas party, 11.30am on Saturday 3 December, with a later performance at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Christmas light switch-on, 5pm on Friday 9 December.

    Brand New Day (Peace on Earth) by Music’all is available to download on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. All money raised goes directly to the Chelsea Children’s Hospital charity.

    Utterly heartwarming, we think you’ll agree.
