Collabro to release charity Lighthouse single

The  musical theatre group Collabro are to release of their first ever single ‘Lighthouse’ and give all proceeds to Save the Children’s Emergency Fund in wake of Hurricane Irma.

Collabro singer Michael Auger was caught at the centre of the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, where winds of up to 185mph tore through the Caribbean and Florida – leaving dozens dead, thousands homeless and entire communities shattered. Michael, who is now back in the UK, said: The devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Irma is truly heart-breaking for the people of the Caribbean and Florida.I know I was very lucky to escape unharmed but there are many thousands of people who have lost everything and will feel the effects of this disaster for years to come.

After witnessing the terrible destruction first hand as Irma hit the Caribbean island of Saint Martin where Michael was on holiday, he has joined bandmates Jamie Lambert, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave in pledging to raise money for Save The Children’s Emergency Fund which helps bring aid to children affected by war and disasters around the world.Lighthouse – which was co-written by the band and Ben Adams of A1 – is a beautifully poignant message of being a shining beacon of hope and help.It is available to digitally download on FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 22nd with 100% of all money raised from the release going to Save the Children’s Emergency Fund.This means every time the song is downloaded 99p will go to the fund which mobilises emergency teams in times of crisis, allowing them to assess situations and get life-saving food, shelter and medicines straight to where they are most urgently needed.
