Billy Ocean covers 'Lovely Day' for charity

Billy Ocean covers

Billy Ocean has teamed up with the Young Voices Choir to release a new version of the Bill Withers’ classic ‘Lovely Day’ for charity.

Also featured on the track are the award-winning broadcaster and musician YolanDa Brown and The Voice UK 2018 winner Ruti Olajugbagbe.

The single is available to download now via iTunes or Amazon.  All the UK profits from the song will go to Place2Be - a charity working to support children and young people’s mental health.

Ocean said: “We have all been affected in different ways over this difficult last year, and many children have really struggled. I’m so happy to be able to join with Young Voices to help make a difference and to raise funds for children’s mental health with this wonderful and hopeful song."

This June, Young Voices will attempt to break their own Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Simultaneous Sing-Along’, currently standing at 293,978 - a record set during the ‘Big Sing 2005’ at the Royal Albert Hall.  The event will be streamed live from London's O2 Arena - and you can register to take part here.
