George Hook, broadcaster and rugby pundit
has taken on one of the biggest challenges of his life. He has been in
the recording studio to sing for COMBER,
a special Charity he truly believes in. George has been a patron of
Comber for many years and it is his sincere hope that his efforts in the
studio will raise much needed funds and bring media attention to the
plight of these 'forgotten' young people.
George has teamed up with Executive Producer Bill Hughes and Producers
Ronan Johnston and Larry Hogan and together they have selected eleven
wonderful tracks to make up this special album. Marc duets on the first
track of the CD, the Leonard Choen classic "First we take
Manhatten". Of the chosen songs, eight are duets with some of
Ireland's best known singers including Dana in playful and flirtatious
mode on Goodness Gracious Me, Brian Kennedy with a moving and poignant
rendition of The Killers - Human, Jack L in powerhouse form on Mack the
Knife, Emma O'Driscoll in cheeky form on These Boots Are Made For
Walking and the wonderful Eleanor McEvoy, who has written a new song
with Paul Brady 'Is That Love?' Also in the line up is George's rugby
nemesis Brent Pope with some good-natured ribbing on You've Got A Friend
In Me and soccer pundit Johnny Giles with solid support on Sixteen Tons.
George also performs as a solo artist with How Oft Do My Thoughts (The
Banks), You Were Always On My Mind and he gives a stirring and
breathtaking vocal on the Henry Higgins rant from My Fair Lady – A
Hymn To Him.
Marc was delighted to be part of this project & indeed very worthy
cause. It is now available to download from itunes
The album is released on the RTÉ
label and in-store since November 13th.
