Girls Aloud will support anti-knife campaign by lending their vocals to its charity anthem, which will also feature some world champion athletes.
A group of artists, including group Girls Aloud, are scheduled to record a charity anthem for a campaign against knife crimes in London. The project will also include singer Steve Edwards and some world champion athletes, such as boxers Johnny Nelson and Junior Witter.
The collaboration which will be named under U.K. Flow, is expected to contribute in the fund raiser program, conducted by a number of knife crime charity organizations. The song is initiated by Stephen Nicholas, an actor who starred in a British television series "Dream Team".
Commenting on his motive, Nicholas says that he genuinely wants to raise awareness about knife crime and its consequences for a number of victims who have been stabbed to death across the country. "We just want to raise awareness. We haven't got any ulterior motive, our only motive is to stop kids dying," he explains.
Another news says that Girls Aloud will not perform in Bowood, England after a mass of cancellations over three concerts, scheduled for the weekend of September 12 to 14, are announced by event organizers and promoters, Eastern Breeze. "The decision to cancel the three concerts at which the Levellers, UB40 and Girls Aloud were to appear at Bowood is sadly due to circumstances beyond our control," general manager of the enterprise explains. "We feel extremely sorry for concert goers who were planning to visit Bowood this September weekend."
