'Small change, change lives'
A Christmas Single has been recorded to raise money for research into “Cures for the Big 4” killers that affect so many of us - cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative/psychiatric diseases.
The single, performed by “super group” The Friday Foundation, is dedicated to the memory of the song’s lyricist and co-writer, Jonny Walker, a talented musician and fun loving 21-year-old, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer as a teenager and whose battle ended just a few weeks ago. His premature death, which came before he was able to hear the completed recording, has been a powerful catalyst for all those involved in making the song a reality.
In a matter of weeks the single has been written, recorded, edited and mastered by people from a variety of backgrounds who have generously given of their time and talent. Amongst those performing are the Military Wives, Jonjo Kerr and Vicky Louise (vocals), James Gambold (drums), Alex Hutchings (guitar), Rich O’Brien (bass), Matthew Elston (violin), and a chorus including Jonny’s parents.
Jonny’s voice can be heard in the final section of the song accompanied by his Dad Mac on guitar, taken from an early demo of his ideas. Although he never heard the final version, it is destined to become his legacy, raising money for causes in which he also passionately believed and which affect us all, not least his own wider family and friends.
