A special tribute to Steve Brown, Legendary Producer (1955 – 2020) in aid of the Angels Of The Nation project and the NHS Together charity.
Recorded remotely from home in the US and the UK, the artists came together in a moving performance to deliver a fitting tribute to both Steve Brown and our incredible NHS.
Steve Brown was a brilliant producer whose credits included Elton John, Freddie Mercury, The Cult, Alison Moyet, ABC, The Manic Street Preachers, Wham, and many, many more. Steve was magnanimous and always considering how his experiences could help others, leading him to set up many altruistic projects. His last one was the Angels Of The Nation project with Paul Gilley, who with his son, James, created the Appeal to gift the statues. Sadly, Steve’s untimely passing means that he did not get the chance to see it through, but his friends continued his work and the cover of Robbie Williams’ “Angels” will be released on 4th June 2021 to download.
The release is in support of The Angels Of The Nation Appeal to provide grieving families with beautiful Angel statues as a poignant symbol of our gratitude for frontline workers who made the ultimate sacrifice. The white marble resin statues were designed by artist Lucianne Lassalle and are hand-cast and hand-finished in the UK. Funds raised through the JustGiving page are to produce and distribute the statues; due to the huge support already, we are expecting to exceed our target so surplus funds will be donated to NHS charities. All proceeds from the single will be donated to NHS Together (Registered Charity No: 1186569)
