Captain Tom Moore’s charity single with Michael Ball shoots to number 1 on UK iTunes chart

Captain Tom Moore’s charity single for the NHS has shot to number 1 on the UK iTunes chart, as the 99-year-old war veteran’s fundraising total passed a whopping £22million.

Tom’s collaborated with singer Michael Ball for a version of You’ll Never Walk Alone, originally recorded by Rodgers and Hammerstein in 1945 – which has become the anthem of medical staff during the pandemic.

The heroic 99-year-old WW2 war veteran, who has raised funds for the NHS by doing 100 laps of his garden, introduces the track, saying: “Hold your head up high and don’t be afraid of the dark”.

It has narrowly pipped Vera Lynn and Katherine Jenkins rendition of the We’ll Meet Again to the top spot, a track originally sung by the 103-year old for British soldiers in 1939 following the outbreak of WW2.
