The 16 finalists from this year’s X Factor TV series will be releasing a charity single in aid of ACT & Children’s Hospices UK. They will perform a cover version of Rose Royce’s ‘Wishing On A Star’. The finalists will record the single in London this week, and it will be available via download from 20 November and as a single one day later.
All net record company proceeds from sales of the single will go to ACT & Children’s Hospices UK.
ACT & Children’s Hospices UK works to ensure that every life-limited and life-threatened child, young person and their family gets the best possible care and support from the moment of diagnosis, wherever they live and for as long as they need it.
Simon Cowell said: “Having worked close hand with this charity and seeing the amazing work they do for kids and their families who need help and support, I am thrilled that the X Factor charity single this year will benefit this charity.”
The single is the fourth charity release from X Factor, following last year’s cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, 2009’s cover of Michael Jacksons’s ‘You Are Not Alone,’ which supported Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and 2008’s ‘Hero’ which raised over £1.3 million for the ‘Help For Heroes’ charity.
