Charity single released by Carol Lee Sampson

WORCESTER-based singer/songwriter Carol Lee Sampson has released a charity single, "Hallelujah Is Our Song", in aid of Cancer Research UK. Carol's best friend is currently battling the disease and the song was written for her. Read a press release, "The phrase which the song hangs on, 'Whatever happens, Hallelujah is our song,' was inspired by an article which Carol read recently about Denise Inge (the wife of the Bishop of Worcester, who sadly died on Easter Sunday). These were the words she had uttered on hearing the news that she had cancer! Carol was greatly touched by the story and out of it, this song has been birthed." As well as a download single, Carol has also put the song onto a CD with several other tracks. CR

"Hallelujah is Our Song" is simply glorious! The lyrics and tune are uplifting and must be a great encouragement to those suffering from cancer. Carol Lee’s vocals are spot on, and the swaying rhythms of both the guitar and keyboards are pure joy. Also appearing on this release are six bonus tracks, taken from her back catalogue. Of those, ‘Back to Life’ has an ambient feel to it, and one on which Carol Lee’s vocals sound remarkably like Olivia Newton John. ‘Everlasting Arms’ is a pleasant song about being carried and held in God’s embrace, while the piano led ‘Don’t Wait’ carries a strong message. “Don’t wait” to say sorry, or tell someone something, before it’s too late. The cost of this CD or download is just £3.99. for that, you’re getting a blend of lovely songs, plus raising money for a very worthy cause.
