Post Pals Charity Single – ‘Walking In The Air’

Dec 22, 2010

A beautiful version of the festive favourite, ‘Walking In The Air’, is available to download on iTunes now in aid of Post Pals.

The stunning vocals of 12 year old St James’s Palace chorister, Archie Buchanan, are set against the haunting melodies of the well-loved tune, making ‘Walking In The Air’ a timeless classic that children and adults alike can enjoy.

Archie, who also sings with Finchley Children’s Music Group and is one of ten children of the Chapel Royal had a very personal and poignant reason for supporting the Post Pal single and said;

I know what it’s like to see someone in your family get very ill and not get better as my Dad died of cancer two years ago and at about the same time as I began this recording, my 5 year old cousin Malachi was diagnosed with cancer on his eye. He’s currently having chemotherapy but has also got to have radiation therapy. Malachi has two brothers and a sister and it’s really hard for his whole family but they’ve had lots of support from friends and everyone’s been doing things to try to help make it less horrible and difficult for them.

It’s really good to know that this single will raise money for such a good cause. There are lots of families out there who have a very ill child but don’t have much support and I think it’s great that Post Pals can help cheer them up with letters and cards from new friends and let them know that other people are thinking of them.

‘Walking In The Air’ is available to download for 79p now! Please spread the word and let all your loved ones know too.

The single can be downloaded directly from here. Why not show your support and snap up this exclusive single as an extra gift for a loved one just in time for Christmas?

All money raised from single downloads will help bring smiles to sick children across the country – thank you!
