But­ter­flies in­spire song for hospice

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviews -

A SINGER-SONG­WRITER from Run­corn has put his pen to pad and writ­ten a song to raise cash for Hal­ton Haven.

Gareth Hee­som said A Mil­lion But­ter­flies was in­spired by his per­for­mance at the hospice’s Tea At Three event dur­ing sum­mer, which fea­tured a but­ter­fly re­lease.

He com­bined this with a na­tive Amer­i­can leg­end, wrote and recorded the song and pub­lished a video on Youtube in prepa­ra­tion for pre-re­lease on Oc­to­ber 9 and full re­lease on Oc­to­ber 27.

Gareth said: “The leg­end says that if you have a wish, you should tell a but­ter­fly.

“As but­ter­flies don’t make a sound they can not tell your wish to any­one, ex­cept the great spirit who sees ev­ery­thing. As you re­lease the but­ter­fly, the spirit sees this great beauty that you have re­leased and can grant your wish.”

Gareth is also per­form­ing at venues around Cheshire and Liver­pool through­out Oc­to­ber.
