Butterflies inspire song for hospice
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.
