Back our boys and sing for England
THE KM Group’s Song for England competition is being backed by top DJ Dave Berry. The 32-year-old, who hosts the breakfast show on Xfm, is urging people to send in their anthems backing our boys in South Africa. We’ve teamed-up with competition sponsor Kent Adult Education and Demelza hospice care for children in our mission to find Kent’s number one football song. We’re encouraging musicians of all talents to record their anthems and stand a chance of winning a professional recording session and a music video. These songs will be shortlisted before readers of KM Group newspapers and listeners of kmfm can text vote for their favourite. Dave, who is engaged to Heidi from the Sugababes, got involved with Demelza in 2007 through his love of Charlton Athletic. He met representatives from the charity at the club’s Christmas party and jumped at the chance of being a patron. He says people should get involved because the profits from the text voting go to Demelza and the song may propel its creators to stardom. Dave doubts whether Heidi will fancy a bash at entering as she is too busy with other work – and “doesn’t know anything about football”.
