Actress and singer releases charity Christmas EP
ACTRESS and singer Karen David has released a Christmas EP with all proceeds going to charity.
The star of hit BBC1 series Waterloo Road teamed up with Asian singer and songwriter Navin Kundra and Waterloo Road co-star Phillip Martin Brown to record the four-track EP in time for the festive season.
Karen and Navin can be heard singing a hauntingly beautiful version of the seasonal carol ‘Silent Night’, whilst actor Phillip Martin Brown takes on a rather cheeky tone with Karen in the old Tom Jones classic ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’.
The duets have been packaged together with a further two tracks to create a special Christmas EP, entitled ‘My Christmas List’, which was released earlier this week. All proceeds are being donated to the housing and homelessness charity Shelter.
Karen hopes that the proceeds from the duet and the whole EP will make some difference to the lives of those without a home, especially during this time of the year.
“We all look forward to spending this time of the year with our families but we forget that not everyone is as privileged as we are,” she said.
“There are people out there who do not have homes. Whilst we’re tucking into our Christmas dinners, they are begging on the street.”
Singer Navin Kundra added: “I have been following Karen’s music for a while now and finally have had the privilege to work with her. Silent Night is an iconic track to cover and I can’t think of anyone better to have collaborated with. The best thing about this project is that it’s for a good cause. It’s great that we are able to use our music to reach to those that are in need, especially at this time of the year, the time of giving.”
‘My Christmas List’, by Karen David is available on iTunes priced £3.16
