Xmas ideas 2011---number 1---download a song for someone you love

This post is number one in a series to do Xmas this year by employing the "Spend more time than money" campaign.


I have been lucky enough to have caught a repeat of this story's first episode and went back tonight and watched the last one [3rd].  It is an amazing story of a very emotionally evocative group of military wives who become a choir created by Gareth Malone.

They start out small and nervous, singing in a local market...

And their confidence grows... http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b017kcj3/The_Choir_Military_Wives_Episode_2/


Then they are given the opportunity to singe before the royal family at the Royal Albert Hall with a song Gareth Malone had written for them:

Even though they are not performers, they rehearse and rehearse and are successful

Then Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2, popular DJ/Host of the Breakfast Show , decides to back the record:

 If you do have few minutes to watch these episodes, I recommend it.  If you like it share with everyone you know.  


If you Tweet, follow them:

The profits of the single will go towards several military charities, so if you purchase a copy for yourself or someone else the money will be going to a good cause.


Please share at will!---Gabrielle 2011
