Amy Macdonald Pens Song About Chilean Miners

However, Amy Macdonald doubts she will ever release the song, fearing she would be accused of trying to profit from their story.

Scottish singer Amy Macdonald was so moved by the rescue of 33 trapped Chilean miners this week, she started work on a song inspired by their plight. The "This Is the Life" hitmaker spent a marathon 24 hours in front of her TV set as she watched the miners' dramatic rescue after they spent two months buried underground following a tunnel collapse.

Macdonald reveals the footage moved her to tears and inspired her to write a new track. She says, "I watched the whole thing all the way through, from start to finish. I just found it so moving. I cried 33 times, once for each one as they came out. It was so inspiring for me. I have half-written a little song based on their plight. It is just a verse and a chorus so far... It was so moving, seeing them being reunited with their families. What they went though was unimaginable but it was such a nice, happy ending."

But Macdonald doubts she will ever release the song, fearing she would be accused of trying to profit from their story. She adds: "I think a lot of people are very cynical, so if I was to put that song out, even as a charity record or something, people would think I was using their situation to cash in."
