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.
Among the line-up for the heart-wrenching song released on Monday (December 17th 2012) was the legend Sir Paul McCartney as well as number one selling artist Robbie Williams, Paloma Faith, Eliza Doolittle, former Spice Girl Melanie C and former 'X Factor' runner up Rebecca Ferguson. The track is currently the favourite of the bookmakers to land that all important Christmas number one mark competing against 2012 'X Factor' winner James Arthur with his cover of Shontelle's 'Impossible'. Despite this, 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' is receiving very little coverage on the radio and remains the underdog in the Christmas number one competition in the eyes of BBC Radio 1 and has only just scraped an A List place on Radio 2's playlist.
The money from the single sales will all be donated to the families of the Hillsborough Disaster for their legal costs in their struggle for justice following the recent scandal surrounding the circumstances of the incident. It has been produced by the BRIT award-winning Guy Chambers who is known for his work with Robbie Williams. Other artists featured on the song are Beverley Knight, Andy Brown, Holly Johnson, Glen Tilbrook, Ren Harvieu, Hollie Cook, Jon McClure, Gerry Marsden, John Power, Mick Jones from The Clash, Peter Hooton from The Farm and The Justice Tonight band, The Zutons' Dave McCabe and Paul Heaton from The Beautiful South.
