Sarah Brightman, Alfie Boe Record ‘God Save The Queen’ For Jubilee Charity Single
Sarah Brightman and Alfie Boe have been joined by the NHS Voices of Care Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on a new recording of the UK’s national anthem, God Save The Queen. The song will be released alongside a remastered recording of the National Anthem sung at Her Majesty’s 1953 coronation service in Westminster Abbey.
The release will be available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon Music and across select digital streaming platforms. The CD single will be available at select UK Asda stores and other retailers.
Warner Classics will campaign to get Her Majesty to the top of the UK singles chart for the Platinum Jubilee weekend and raise money for the British Red Cross. Brightman and Boe will join these efforts by calling on the British public to download, buy and stream the single on the week of its release. Warner Music UK and iTunes UK proceeds from this unique digital double A-Side single will be donated to support the vital work of the British Red Cross, of which Her Majesty is a Patron.
Sarah Brightman says: “When I received the call to ask if I wanted to be a part of this adventure with Alfie, I was excited about the opportunity and the efforts behind the project. It means a lot to us both – we’d love to see the anthem get to the top of the charts and raise meaningful funds for the incredible British Red Cross during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.”
Alfie Boe says: “I feel honoured to be a part of this very special project with the amazing Sarah Brightman, the very talented NHS Voices of Care Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s an amazing opportunity to raise money for the British Red Cross who do such a great job day-in day-out, whilst of course trying to get the national anthem to the top of the charts during Her Majesty’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.”
