Bright Light Bright Light & The Pink Singers release a specially re-recorded version of ‘Everything I Ever Wanted’ from the critically acclaimed album Life Is Easy to mark World AIDS Day and raise money for Elton John AIDS Foundation. At least 20p from every download will go to Elton John Aids Foundation.
The Pink Singers are Europe’s longest-running GLBT choir. They formed in 1983 for the Gay Pride march in London have been singing since.
The musician, whose name is Rod Thomas, decided to release this charity single after working with Elton John on a duet, and touring together in 2014. Thomas says of the release:
“I really wanted to do something to help raise money for World AIDS Day. I know many people who have been affected by the disease and making pop music, I don’t get to do an awful lot that feels like it helps a wider community. And while I love working in a pop world, it’s so important for me to still be connected to the real world and real people. I found The Pink Singers who are a brilliant choir and London’s longest standing LGBT choir. Their energy and enthusiasm was so wonderful, perfect for the song and for the project. I hope we can raise money, and in some small way I can help to fight AIDS and to give something back to Elton to thank him for all his support of my work, by raising money for his AIDS Foundation and the excellent work he and his team do.”
Elton John has said of the single “One of my favourite songs from his album Life Is Easy. A message of hope for all the people with A.I.D.S on our planet. So grateful for this gift of love from Bright Light Bright Light.”
