Lincoln Minster School pupils have recorded a charity single ‘Tears of the World’ as part of a new vocal group ‘The Youngstars’.
Katie Care, Alex Grogan, James Read, Emily Roe, Georgia Stone and Harry Twelves all took part in the project which aims to raise funds for the International Bomber Command Centre.
Recognition – Remembrance – Reconciliation are words that sum up the release available to buy or download on Remembrance Day 11th November. (Pre-order available on iTunes)
This is certainly a single with a difference, a superbly produced track with a simple but highly emotive message about the harsh realities of war, written by Jim Dooley of 70’s pop group The Dooleys.
The group showcases an impressive collective of enthusiastic talent, and reconfirms that the simple power that voice still does elevate a song more than just good production. It is the kind of song that, once heard, lingers on in the mind, and is a reminder that conflicts such as war are still affecting young children around the world.
Commemorating the efforts of World War Two’s Bomber Command, all profits from the single will go to the building of the International Bomber Command Centre, in Lincoln, that will not only honour the 58,500 servicemen and women that lost their lives but will also catalogue the true cost of war in any era through the first-hand stories of those involved.
“The generation that fought the war were made of stern stuff,” Jim says.
“Without them, and their efforts, we wouldn’t be enjoying the freedom we all enjoy so much today. Which is why we are still working so hard, to make sure that we do not forget them.”
