Liam Gallagher's Special Surprise For Ambitious Kids Of Co Antrim Music School

If you enjoy what the kids have done, please donate a few quid to  STAND UP TO CANCER.....Here's how our music school came about recording this festive charity single...

The young guitar students at our music school had been learning the chords to Songbird by Oasis in preparation of the Christmas Tree Switch On in Larne recently when one 5 year old student complained that it wasn’t a very ‘Christmassy’ song. And that’s when we had a light bulb moment; that we could change the lyrics to conjure up visions of Christmas get our music students involved in recording and releasing it as a Charity Single!

So within the space of a week or so, we rewrote the lyrics, using lots of festive references and took some of our tutors and vocal students down to Railway Studios in Lisburn to record the track.  We were then able to shoot the music video to accompany the single, featuring approximately 60 Music Yard students playing guitar, drums and singing.  We have decided to donate all proceeds and revenue generated from the single to the charity campaign Stand up to Cancer (the over-riding charity is Cancer Research UK).

As Liam Gallagher originally wrote the song, we required his permission to use the melody, so we all breathed a sigh of relief when we received full endorsement from his publisher!

Our students aged 5-16 yrs are truly all excited that they have been part of this single release and also that it will go to such a worthy cause, as almost everyone unfortunately nowadays has been touched by cancer in some form whether it be a family member or a friend.  We might not be able to compete with the other big names battling for the UK Christmas Single Number 1 slot but if we can as many people as possible behind us, we will certainly give it our best shot and raise some money for Charity in the process!
