A HOST of Welsh superstars have lent their voices to a special fundraising CD, now on sale in aid of the Welsh National Mining Memorial at Senghenydd.
The National Mining Memorial is set to be unveiled on the 14th October 2013, marking the 100th anniversary of Britain’s largest mining disaster at Universal Colliery in Senghenydd, where 440 men and boys lost their lives in a devastating explosion.
Supporters of the Memorial are now able to pre-order a copy of “A Miner’s Song”, which was recorded between November 2012 and February 2013 in Wales, London, USA and Canada.
The recording includes over 300 performers including three choirs, a children's choir and a brass band as well as the voices of some well known Welsh stars, including Aled Jones, Boyd Clack, Ioan Gruffudd, Joe Calzaghe, Michael Sheen, Paul Potts and many, many more.
The money raised from the sale of the CD will go towards erecting a statue, a memorial wall, and a landscaped garden on the site of the former Universal Colliery.
The CD costs just £6.00 and people can pre-order their copy now at www.nationalminingmemorial.co.uk
