♩♪♫♫ ♪ ♫ Stand By Me ♫ ♪ ♫♫♪♩
When Jonathan Ireland and Kevin Fegan set up The Concentio Chamber Choir at Queen’s University Belfast in 2005, the friends could have never predicted that just five short years later, Kevin would lose his life to Sudden Cardiac Death at the age of 24.
Now Director of the Choir and a Trustee of CRY Ireland, Jonathan is using his musical taken to honour his late friend and shine some light on SCD with the release of Stand By Me.
The song was picked because it essentially describes what we do – stand by families in their darkest hour. Due to the pandemic, this was recorded virtually in the singers own homes – 30 singers based all around Europe – many of whom were close friends of Kevin.
Huge thanks to Jonathan and the Concentio Chamber Choir.
