"We Will Remember Them"
is a nonpolitical benefit to say Thank
You to all of our brave service men and women
around the World who have served their Country for
freedom and protection ... In the recent past we
have all become aware of the plight our service
personnel are enduring and the sad losses to so many
families has become all too familiar to the general
public via the media coverage. Alongside this we see
tragic images of those sustaining horrendous
injuries which have changed their lives forever...
The release of the song will raise funds to help and
support the family's who have lost or suffered
horrendous injuries in their Military service. In
addition, the Anthem will also remember all our
Service Men and Women from all past conflicts around
Here are comments from several artists
involved in the recording of "We Will Remember Them"...
Micheal Bolton... I was invited to sing and
participate in the recording of 'We Will Remember
Them' whilst touring the UK recently. Supporting our
troops, and showing our appreciation on their return
is something that is essential to me.
Paul Carrack... I am delighted to have the
opportunity to add my support to the servicemen and
women and their families who put themselves on the
line for us all.
Robin Gibb... I participated in the “We Will
Remember Them” song because I have always felt
passionate about the soldiers who sacrificed their
lives in two World Wars so that countries in Europe
could be free, including Germany.
I feel just as strongly today for the brave soldiers
who are in Iraq and Afghanistan, who, every day are
putting their lives on the line so we can have peace
in the world. They are the very few who are prepared
to pay the ultimate price, so we should respect,
support and above all, honour them, and we must not
let them down.
