Michael Jackson - Cancer Patient Hopes To Put A Smile On Top Of The Pop Charts At Christmas

A terminally ill cancer patient is making a bid to top the Christmas pop charts in Britain after releasing a cover of Michael Jackson's favourite song, Smile.

Katherine Crowe, who is battling breast cancer, teamed up with members of the London Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra to record the Charlie Chaplin tune, which Jermaine Jackson sang at his brother's Los Angeles memorial service in 2009, at London's fabled Abbey Road studios.

Friends and family members donated cash to raise funds to rent the former studio home of the Beatles and hire the orchestra for the session - and make the mother of two's dreams come true.

Crowe tells the Bbc, "I can't believe the support I have received to make my dream come true. Definitely a little bit of magic happened that day."

Her version of Smile was released on Friday (14Dec12). All proceeds from sales of the song will benefit cancer research charities.

MJ would have been right by her side for this and would have volunteered to sing with her which really would have sold out! He is listening and looking down on her wishing her all the best!!
