Classic FM Unites To Record Charity Single

Classic FM have announced the exciting details about their upcoming charity single, called Steadfast.

All proceeds from the sale of the single will go to Global’s Make Some Noise, so listen out on Thursday 9th October for how to get your copy!

With music by Classic FM’s Composer in Residence Howard Goodall, the piece will feature solos from the voices of Katherine Jenkins OBE, Alfie Boe and Laura Wright, as well as Classic FM’s very own presenters Aled Jones, Catherine Bott and Alexander Armstrong. There will also be sounds from Sol3 Mio, and Britain’s got Talent stars Jonathan Antoine and Lucy Kay. 

And it doesn’t end there. The incredible charity single will feature Myleene Klass on the piano, Classic FM favourite Miloš on the guitar, the trombone talents of John Suchet and star violinist Charlie Siem. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is even making his debut on the glockenspiel.

Julian Reynolds will conduct a mini orchestra and choir of students and alumni from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Then, to pull it all together, Classic FM are collaborating with brilliant producer, Anna Barry, who will be making sure the 9pm deadline is hit so you can get downloading the track from iTunes on 10th October 2014.

There’ll be all sorts happening on the day, with live coverage from Classic FM’s presenters on how recording is going down at the studio and a live update at 1pm with Anne-Marie Minhall, as Alfie Boe joins her with an exclusive preview of the single.

Katherine Jenkins OBE said: “I have always been passionate about music. I am honoured to be able to use my passion to help others and raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise.”
