Adrian Warwick and Grahame Maclean, writers of the song A Million Tears, written especially for our Purple Poppy Appeal, are celebrating their success in the Classical Music Charts this week… By My Side, co-written with Olga Thomas, the renowned composer, went straight into the iTunes Classical Chart at number 1 – pipping Andrea Bocelli and Ed Sheeran to top spot.
Adrian says it was a great honour for him and Grahame to be asked to write the lyrics for the song, which is performed by acclaimed soprano, Joanna Forest.
He says: “ Olga’s work excels and she has had several pieces presented to Her Majesty The Queen, including “Themes of Life and Glory”, a tribute to The Queen Mother, “Celebration”, an orchestra piece written to mark the marriage of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the anthem “Jubilation” for the Diamond Jubilee, performed by The Band Of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band).”
We look forward to ‘A Million Tears‘, which Adrian, Grahame and Mark Young have written especially for us – and sung by the exquisite Christina Johnston, hopefully achieving the same success when it is released next year.
