Football fan is leading the singing for England
A CATCHY song called Let’s Go and Win for England urges Wayne Rooney and his teammates to go out and attack in the World Cup.
The composer is singer and guitarist Trevor Osborne, of Collard Road, Willesborough, who feels if England can develop a strong belief in themselves they can bring the trophy home.
His song is the latest entry received for the KM Group’s competition to get people to create a rousing England anthem to make the Three Lions roar.
Trevor, 48, said: “My song has a terraces-like feel to it – with a catchy chorus. If you hear it more than once you can be humming it all day.
“It ends with a good rip-roar- ing finale.”
The KM Group is urging as many people in the county as possible to come forward with their songs. All they have to do is record their anthem and email it in an MP3 format to songforen firstname.lastname@example.org
Trevor is a keen football fan himself and has played since the age of 5 including for his school. He holds a BA honours degree in Social Sciences but pursued instead the life of a musician.
“I might never become a millionaire but I’m happy to be a musician. It’s who I am.”
Closing date for entries is May 21. Then from May 24 to 28 a special panel of England-loving music fans will shortlist the top entries.
And from June 1 to June 9, these will then be played on kmfm and on a special section of www.kentonline.co.uk where people can listen and text vote for their favourite.
The anthem with the most votes will be announced on June 11 – the day before England’s campaign kicks off.
The winner will get a top recording session and also have a video produced to go with their song.
