Singer Lulu has teamed-up with the Military Wives Choirs for the release of a new single, Cry. Released today, all proceeds will be donated to the Military Wives Choir Foundation charity. To support the single’s release, Lulu will perform Cry with a different Military Wives Choir at each of her 35 UK tour dates throughout March and April.
Marham Military Wives Choir will be joining Lulu on stage at the opening night of her tour on Wednesday at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds. Lulu said, “Having a different Military Wives Choir join me onstage every night will be a lot of fun. But on a more serious note, later in my life I was diagnosed as having post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and what that did was help me to relate even more with our men and women in the armed forces. I realised I would like to do something to help, so we recorded Cry and my brother and I rewrote the lyrics to apply specifically to the military. PTSD is not just about physical scars; it’s about the emotional scars, and they run very deep.”
They are enormous and very difficult to deal with. We need everybody’s support.”
