Chris de Burgh teams up with brothers to record song for late mother
Date Posted: 21/12/10
Irish crooner Chris de Burgh has helped two brothers record a charity single in honour of their late mother.
Taking part in Noel's Christmas Presents with Noel Edmonds, de Burgh met Ben and Jamie Hazelby, who have raised over £75,000 for St Ann's Hospice after an appeal was set up in their mother Gill's memory.
They were taken to RAK Studios in London where a version of Lonely Sky - which was played at Gill's funeral - was recorded. It will now be released as a single, with all profits going to the hospice.
"It was just one of those songs that we both loved and for the boys to record it with Chris De Burgh is a dream come true. It was the most incredible and magical experience of our lives," said dad Paul.
Lady in Red singer De Burgh will be back in action next year, when he performs in front of those booking Bournemouth hotels for a gig at the town's International Centre on Friday October 6th.
