Adrian Warwick and Mark Young, well known to us at War Horse Memorial as the songwriters of our beautiful and official anthem A Million Tears, have done it again with a new song, just released and tipped to do well with its expression of love and hope…
It’s Love on Christmas Day carries a simple but important message that in times like these love conquers; just simply being able to hear the words from someone, “I love you,” can make all the difference. A special video accompanies the song and we are delighted that it will feature in our Christmas concert on Sunday, December 20 at 8pm on YouTube.
The song features vocalist Keedie Estelle, who had a recent number two UK chart hit with Duncan James from the band Blue. The duo say they chose Keedie to join them on the track on hearing her wonderful vocal performance on the song My Reason for the Andy Garcia film, Modigliani. Adrian explains: “Her voice is amazing, strong with a beautiful warm tone. We contacted her about appearing on the track, and on hearing the song she was keen to be involved.”
Keedie adds: “This is a beautiful heartfelt love song supported by a truly magical video, which portrays the feeling of love and how it the most beautiful gift we can both give and receive. I believe it will resonate with everyone in these strange and difficult times. It’s a song that promises nothing but the simple gift of sincere love on Christmas Day.”
We will share the video link to our virtual concert once all the performers have been confirmed, but if you google War Horse Christmas Concert on YouTube after Friday, it will pop up. The concert premieres at 8pm, but don’t worry if you miss it, it can be viewed any time after that.
