Waiting for Video...

Scottish rock acts have joined forces with school pupils to release a Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games song in aid of UNICEF.

The song was written and recorded by pupils of St Anne’s Primary School and band members from the The Vaccines, Franz Ferdinand and Frightened Rabbit.

Freddie Cowan of the Vaccines began mentoring the choir last year with the help of the Celtic FC Foundation.

The song is now on sale on iTunes for £1,29 with 76p going directly to UNICEF.

Freddie said: “I have been very honoured to help these children realise their potential, for every effort I put in they respond with double back. I am extremely proud of what we have done together and look forward to seeing what will be achieved in the future. ”

He added: “I see no end to what can be accomplished, and am delighted that we are able to support UNICEF’s life-saving work through the release of this song.”

The project is a way for Glasgow’s young people to celebrate Glasgow 2014 Commonweath Games and create both a musical and sporting legacy for Scotland and Commonwealth countries.

Tom Burstow, UNICEF’s 2014 Commonwealth Games Director, said: “We’re delighted that our partnership with Glasgow 2014 is being celebrated and supported by this song – a project which has always had brighter futures for young people at its very heart.”
