All I want for Christmas is Boyle, Presley and ZOB...

An intriguing mix of talent past and present could well see Zone One Brass top the pop charts this Christmas.

Christmas Zone

 

Zone One Brass are hoping they will become genuine contenders for the Christmas number 1 spot in the charts this year with a little help from the oddly matched combination of Susan Boyle and Elvis Presley!

Posthumous

The central London band and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra string section recorded 'O Come All Ye Faithful', as part of Susan Boyle's Christmas single, where she sings a posthumous, digital duet with the King of Rock 'n Roll himself.

Bookies have already made the song second favourite to take the festive top spot.

Single and album

Recently released as a single and the lead track on the Britain’s Got Talent star's new album 'Home For Christmas', 100% of the profits from the record will be donated directly to 'Save the Children'.

It is hoped that as well as in the UK, the single will become a major global hit in the pop markets of Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the USA.

It was pretty strange playing the carol with most of us wearing shorts and flip flops!MD, Richard Ward

Hottest days

Zone One MD Richard Ward told 4BR: "We were all in London's Angel Studios back in July on one of the hottest days of the year. It was pretty strange playing the carol with most of us wearing shorts and flip flops!"


Band Manager Mark Probert added: "Zone One recorded a track for 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2011 and the producer was pleased with our work in the studio so we were delighted to be asked to play for this project.

Hopefully it will raise plenty of money for 'Save the Children’."
