Singing for a Diamond

Music fit for The Queen

 

In recent days, Gary Barlow’s albumn Sing has topped the UK album charts with sales of 40,000 copies.

 

Two hundred and ten musicians, including the African Children’s Choir and the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force Band, helped record this special tribute to The Queen. Produced by Barlow with the assistance of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gareth Malone, Sing also features Prince Harry on the tambourine, Hayley Westenra, Alfie Boe and the Military Wives choir. Sing will be performed this evening at a special concert at Buckingham Palace in the presence of Her Majesty.

 

Another tribute I was alerted to came from a singer named Anton Lorien who contacted me via Twitter. He was approached in 2011 by the British Monarchist League who asked him to produce a song for a lady he describes as having: “Given her life selflessly to the people of Britain and the Commonwealth.”

Mr Lorien’s song, Like A Diamond, is available to download on iTunes but I wholeheartedly recommend that you watch the video clip available above. It contains some wonderful footage of The Queen and the clip at 3:33 where our Monarch runs to watch her racehorse is especially worth seeing.

Both Sing and Like A Diamond capture the feelings of our nation brilliantly. Be sure to sing along tonight.

  1. Anton’s tune rocks but I also love Gary Barlow’s. I think Mr Barlow will soon become Lord Barlow after the way he looked after The Queen tonight. Mark my words and SING!

  2. The past is gone, tomorrow is yet to be.
    We only have now to share forever.
    Let us all give thanks on this tiny little planet.
    A Commonwealth of People Giving Thanks.

  3. Very professional, patriotic and a pleasure to watch. This deserves to be appreciated and therefore should become a hit on You Tube. I nominate for a Steeple Award in the category of Best Video of 2012!
