We say

In April this year, Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery won over the hearts of the nation, as well as the judges and audience on Britain’s Got Talent, when he auditioned with this song after a dare. The track was dedicated to his late wife Joan and was their song - they sang it throughout their life together. This beautiful and stirring rendition, alongside We’ll Meet Again and Love Changes Everything, helped him to reach the show’s final, which he finally won. He then became the oldest solo artist to ever sign a record deal aged 89 with Decca, in partnership with Syco. Colin is now set to release his debut album Love Changes Everything next month (20 September), and today releases this rendition as its lead track. He’s already been busy on a regional radio and TV promotional push, with a large number of interviews and vocal performances, and has been booked in for national TV appearances on BBC Breakfast and Loose Women around the album release. A powerfully heartfelt and emotional release.
