The X Factor Winner's Song Will Be Charity Single
SiCo has confirmed it will raise money for Together for Short Lives...
Last month, it was reported that SiCo was pulling the plug on the traditional contestants charity song, with it now being announced that this year's winner's single will be released in aid of children’s charity Together for Short Lives.
The two remaining finalists out of Union J, James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas and Christopher Maloney, will then perform their prospective winner's single live during The X Factor’s spectacular final in Manchester.
Once the public have crowned their winner on 9th December, the song will be available to download.
Syco will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of each CD single and download to Together for Short Lives. This is expected to be at least £1 for each CD and 20p for each download.
Cowell - who has worked closely with the charity for many years - stated: "Together for Short Lives is such an inspiring and important charity for so many kids and their families who really need help and support.
"These hospices are really happy and positive places and are a complete lifeline for so many families.
"Having worked with this charity for many years I have been able to see first hand how they have impacted so many lives, and I’m delighted that The X Factor’s winner single sales will go directly to helping them."
