Young Soul Rebels
Britain’s brightest young talents unite for charity single...
Award-winning charity War Child has teamed up with the very best in young UK urban talent to release a new single I Got Soul in support of children ravaged by war around the world.
The track is a reworking of The Killers' track All These Things which includes the hook line ‘I got soul, but I’m not a solider’. It was chosen after Coldplay, U2 and Take That joined The Killers on stage at the Brits afterparty hosted by War Child, where they all performed the track.
On being part of the project, Tinchy Stryder commented: 'As soon as I was asked to be involved with War Child I immediately said yes as I believe forcing children to fight in wars with no choice is completely wrong. I really hope the single is a huge success and it raises lots of money and awareness for the charity.'
I Got Soul is released 19th October 2009 with all proceeds going to War Child.
To help spread the word, slogan bearing T-Shirts for the single release have been designed by über cool fashion designer Henry Holland, famed for his alternative fashion and work with supermodel Agyness Deyn. The T-Shirts will go on sale in Autumn at top fashion retailers.
