James Vincent McMorrow donates to Headstrong

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Silver Lining, our charity album in conjunction with the Sound Training Centre, went on sale in May 2011 and has become a huge success for both of us. The album won the Audio/Music production category in The Digital Hub’s Best in Show 2011 Awards. James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Steve Winwood’s hit ‘Higher Love’ from the album now features on Amazon’s LOVEFILM.com advertisement. This ad is currently airing on television. James has also included ‘Higher Love’ as a B-side to his new vinyl for the single ‘We Don’t Eat’. This is great news because James has very kindly agreed to donate all monies paid to him by Amazon to Headstrong. A combination of James’ donation and funds raised from the sale of the album come to €20,000 so far. If you would like a copy of the album, you can buy it on iTunes on http://lnkd.in/Mu69TD or alternatively you can contact our Fundraising Officer Orlaith on Orlaith@headstrong.ie
