DRAKE KNOCKED OFF TOP SPOT BY HELP FOR HEROES FUNDRAISER ‘LIBERTY’
A video for a song by classical singer Carly Paoli and featuring the Invictus Choir has knocked Drake off the number 1 spot in the iTunes video chart.
Classical BRIT nominee Carly Paoli is joined on ‘Liberty’ by the Invictus Games Choir, a community choir for serving and veteran personnel from all services, who are wounded, injured or sick, to help them in their recovery. Proceeds from the sale of the single and the video will go to Help For Heroes who support the choir.
The recording choir comprised 12 volunteers from the Invictus Games Choir, representing all branches of the Armed Forces. The group consisted of 1 Serving Soldier in the British Army as well as 8 Army Veterans, 1 Royal Navy Veteran and 3 Royal Air Force Veterans
Speaking about the entering the chart at number 1 Carly said “I am over the moon that the first time I achieve a No1 hit is with an amazing song, ‘Liberty’ and that I recorded it with my wonderful friends from The Invictus Games Choir. What makes it even more special is that because proceeds from sales are going to Help for Heroes, it is testament to the fact that people are enthusiastic about supporting a good cause – in this case the brave men and women who have been affected by their service in the Armed Forces.”

“Alive, the fire in our heart will never die.
Alive for freedom, we are standing you and I.
United joined as one through troubled times.
A prayer for our humanity,
The sun will never set on liberty.”
