U.K. CHARTS: CHARITY SINGLES SCORE
4/24/20

Charity release “You’ll Never Walk Alone" (Decca Records) has emerged victorious after a battle with The Weeknd on the U.K's Official Singles Chart. The Bonny (Little Runaway) from Scottish singer/songwriter Gerry Cinnamon hits #1 on albums.

“You’ll Never Walk Alone," by Michael Ball, 98-year-old war veteran Capt. Tom Moore and The NHS Voices of Care Choir, shifted 82k sales to emerge victorious.

Proceeds from the single will go to NHS Charities Together to help during the coronavirus crisis. The funds join £28m already raised by Moore, who pledged to walk 100 laps in his back garden before his 100th birthday at the end of this month in aid of charity. At 99 years and 11 months, Moore is the oldest artist to reach #1 on the Official Singles Chart.

There's another charity single in the Top 5: the BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge cover of Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These” by the Live Lounge Allstars (Dua Lipa, Chris Martin, Bastille, AJ Tracey and many more). It enters at #5 less than 24 hours after its release.
