HOPE Against Cancer Christmas Choir – “It’s Christmas (Santa’s On His Way)” @hopechristmas20 @hopeagnstcancer @_markmorrison #ChristmasSingle @itunes @spotify
The only single you need this Christmas! Born out of an idea that Tommy Reid, an Account Executive at BHIB, had with Tracey Hallam, Corporate & Events Fundraiser from Hope Against Cancer, the single will help raise much-needed money for this amazing charity.
Hope Against Cancer carries out vital research that makes a positive difference for cancer patients in Leicestershire. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic the charity’s fundraising efforts have been severely hampered this year.
Tommy and fellow BHIB colleague Sam Halden worked to pull the project together in order to write, arrange and record a catchy Christmas song. Tommy got in touch with songwriters Martin Stack and Mark Gamble via Capp Records Inc, who wrote the original instrumental. He then reached out to Leicester native, R&B singer Mark Morrison. Mark generously offered to provide time in his Leicester studio to record the single and produced the song himself.
From the business club where they all network together, Tommy brought in a number of influential members of the Leicester business community to support the project. As a result, performers on the single include:
•Tommy Reid and Sam Halden – BHIB
•Byron Dixon, OBE – MD of Microfresh Limited
•Pete Simpson – MD of MME Limited
•Gurbinder Singh – MD of BGS Accountants
•Gavin Dilkes – MD of Synergy Personnel Limited
•Jo Peters – MD of JSP Virtual Limited
•Satwinder Sidhu – MD of Paradigm Wills Limited
•Steph Beeston-Clarke – Owner of Beeston-Clarke Management Solutions
•Tracey Hallam – Hope Against Cancer
•Martin Stack – DJ Skillmaster
