No Comments

bridge over you nhs christmas singleThe Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir have released a Christmas single and are even a bookies’ favourite for the number 1 slot!  Bridge Over You is an arrangement of Coldplay’s Fix You and Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water and it’s fabulous!

The video for the single is a moving celebration of our NHS in its 65th year. Proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support and local health charities.

 

You can download the single THIS WEEK. It is available from iTunes and www.nhschoir.co.uk

This is not another annoying ask for cash, this is for a formidable cause! The radio edit is the version that counts towards the charts – it’s only 99p so every download will help! It’s possible to move up the charts very quickly with a sudden surge of downloads so get downloading right now!!

It raises lots of money for charity, supports our NHS and has the added benefit of sending a strong message to the government!

Thank you for your support and let’s make positive change!

Every now and then I feel the need to share a fabulous piece of PR, Marketing or marketing campaign. This just had to be shared. I felt inspired watching this film and I know you will too!

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired. Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Meet 97-year-old Hal Lasko, The Pixel Painter.
See more work here.

This lovely man was a typographer, in ‘his day’ (which actually means nothing, because people have many ‘days’ right? – Hal certainly has!)

He spent a lifetime with art, then lost his eyesight and thought he would never ‘paint’ again. Thanks to 8 bit Art, he can. Watch the legendary tribute below…
