Today sees the release of what many think will be the UK Christmas number one this year, the charity single "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", by The Justice Collective. Behind that moniker we find, amongst others, Paul McCartney, Glenn Tilbrook, Melanie Chisholm, Paul Heaton, Paloma Faith, Robbie Williams, Holly Johnson, Shane MacGowan and Beverley Knight. The proceeds from the classic song written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell and made famous by The Hollies in 1969 goes to the charities for the Hillsborough disaster of 1989, when 96 people died in a human crush at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield during the F.A. Cup semi final match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. In other words, after you've watched the video below, please buy it.
