A schoolgirl is singing her heart out in memory of her twin in a bid to reach the charts and raise money for charity.
Jessica Mould’s brother Harry died when he was five after he was admitted to hospital with a suspected asthma attack
Afterwards a coroner ruled the hospital was guilty of “gross failure” to provide him with basic medical attention.
When Jessica struggled with the loss of her twin, her parents set up Harry’s Rainbow, a charity to support other bereaved children and their families in Milton Keynes.
City songwriter Teresa Diamond was so impressed with the charity’s work that she penned a song called One More Angel in Harry’s memory.
Dozens of children from schools over the city were enlisted to perform and record the song as a downloadable single. Talented city vocalist Lydia Singer sings the lead part and Jessica is harmonising.
Poignantly she sings the words: ‘Because you’re special God promoted you. He knew there were bigger things he needed you to do, and now you’re free to spread your love around the world, helping other boys and girls.’
Said her mum Odette, who lives on Greenleys: “I know I’m biased, but the song really is brilliant. There is something very special about it.
“If these kids were on Britain’s Got Talent I think they’d be winners. It’s certainly good enough to reach the charts.”
One More Angel is released this Sunday and Odette is urging people to download it on itunes for just £1.29.
“We need 3,500 downloads to stand a chance of making the charts. We’re really hoping people all over Milton Keynes will help us reach this target,” said Odette.
