Recognition – Remembrance – Reconciliation are words that sum up the release of ‘Tears of the World’, available Remembrance Day, November 11.

The song, written by Jim Dooley, is about the realities of war. It’s sung by The Youngstars, a group of nine girls and eight boys with an average age of 11.

Commemorating the efforts of World War Two’s Bomber Command, all profits from the single will go to the building of the International Bomber Command Centre.

The centre and memorial on Canwick Hill is in honour of the 58,000 servicemen and women that lost their lives and will catalogue the realities of war through first-hand stories.

Jim Dooley said: “The generation that fought the war were made of stern stuff.

“Without them, and their efforts, we wouldn’t be enjoying the freedom we all have today.

“Which is why we are still working so hard, to make sure that we do not forget them.”

People can pre-order the song from October 18 on the IBCC website before the official release on October 11.
