Is The Justice Collective's 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' The Underdog In The Fight For Christmas Number One?
The Justice Collective have finally released their tribute single 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' in remembrance of the tragic disaster at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.
The race is on for the UK Christmas Number one, due to be announced on Sunday December 23, 2012.
It’s a battle of two charity singles this year: The x factor winner James Arthur is looking for a second week at number one with ‘Impossible’, the proceeds of which will go to help the charity Together For Short Lives (which helps sick children), whilst The Justice Collective are hoping for the number one slot with their cover of The Hollies’ ‘He Ain’t Heavy (He’s My Brother).’ The Justice Collective single is also a charitable concern, raising money to help the families of those affected by the Hillsborough Disaster with their legal fees.
Despite receiving far less airplay than Arthur, The Justice Collective – which features Holly Johnson, Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams and Rebecca Ferguson, among many others – currently looks to be in the front-running for the title. The former Frankie Goes To Hollywood singer, Holly Johnson, is urging the public to go out and buy the single – not simply so that it can go to number one, but because it will help the families of the victims of the 1987 disaster.
Two years after falling ill, Holly Johnson was diagnosed with HIV, and spent the next five years close to death.
Former Frankie Goes To Hollywood frontman and 80s icon Holly Johnson was already close to death when he was diagnosed with HIV. Johnson received the news in 1991, despite having "an inkling" the he might have the illness for two years, after falling ill. He explained that for the five years following his diagnosis, he felt "at death's door".
In an interview with British newspaper The Times, Johnson said: "At the end of 1989, I was already showing signs of ill health. I had to pull out of a major German TV show with some mysterious flu. Did I have an inkling? Oh God, yeah. But I thought that if I didn't talk about it, it would go away. I was nearly in the grave. Well, Holly Johnson was at death's door between 1991 and 1996."
