Recorded and produced by college students from Blackpool Sixth and primary-aged children from 10 schools, any cash raised will be donated to The Children’s Society charity, which helps young people living in poverty.

Passionate music tutor Ash Goodinson, who co-ordinated the project – given the hashtag #bethemiracle – alongside fellow musician John Stevens, told The Gazette: “We are raising money for charity and it’s a good news story. Children are helping children.” Today, Blackpool Tower will light up in support of the single, while a campaign video will be shown at attractions across the town.

The song, which delivers a message about how people can help ‘turn the world around’ through their own actions, is available on Amazon for 69p, iTunes for 79p, and Google Play for 99.
