~DRIVING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS ~

This is a most special song to Breezy .. Thought she would make a point to share with all ..
Listen to the words ..*grins* a sentimental feel good song ...
Its been so long .. but i will be there .. so I sing this song ..
its going to take so some time but I'll get there ...
Soon there will be a freeway ....
................................................................
"So I sing for you though You can't hear me" ........
when I get through and feel you near me ..
..........................................................................................
"Take a look at the driver next to me he's just the same" ...
..................................................................................................
This season the song is being released (with a collective collaborations of blues artists)
with proceeds going to an outstanding cause
In The UK
funny thing about this holiday season .. Indeed as breezy always says ..
No Matter where YOU go there you are ..
Where ever one might be driving . Drive Safe ...
warm smiles .. and soft twirlsssssssssssssss on this one and what a great cause
Kudos Mr Chris Rea !!!
~DRIVING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS ~
Chris Rea
RELEASED Monday 07 December 2009
Proceeds to go to "Shelter"
Chris Rea’s “ Driving Home For Christmas “ gets a make-over this Christmas with a new video to accompany the perennial festive favourite, which is being made available as a digital download Christmas single
for the very first time in aid of housing and homelessness charity Shelter from today.
Chris Rea is donating his artist record royalties and Warner Music is donating all its net profits from each sale of the digital download - subject to a minimum donation of 25 pence per single sold.
For the first time ever the song will have an accompanying promo video featuring
Mike Read, David Hamilton, Kristian Digby, Gail Porter, Kirstin O’Brien, Kenny Thomas, Andy Abrahams, Martin Shaw, Carole Decker, Matt D’Angelo, Mark Brennan, Giles Vickers and Lionel Blair.
Chris said:
“I wanted to do something special this Christmas and what better way than to help keep a roof over people’s heads when they need it most – at Christmas. By teaming up with Shelter we can hopefully make a difference.”
Louise Parkes, director of fundraising at Shelter, says:
“This song is a real Christmas favourite and sums up perfectly just how important home is at this time of year.”
“Yet for thousands of families across the UK, Christmas will be spent in temporary accommodation or housing that is damp, overcrowded or in disrepair. Many more face an uncertain future with the threat of repossession or eviction hanging over them.”
“By buying this special Christmas digital download single you’ll be supporting Shelter’s vital work to ensure that everyone has access to a decent home.”
Chris added: “Hopefully if we get some momentum going we can reach the Top Ten, maybe even hit No.1. The more people who download Driving Home For Christmas, the more people Shelter can help. Go on – make a difference this Christmas!”

Seems like a good way for some less fortunate folks to benefit at this time of year.
The promo vid is here on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czhZbqpyBm8
Looks to me as though the artists had a ball making it!
