Chance to record with Boy George

Musician and Entrepreneur Matthew Jones has signed with the legendary artist to record a limited edition EP in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. As lead singer of Culture Club, Boy George became a global superstar in the early 80’s with the classics ‘Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?’ and ‘Karma Chameleon’. Having achieved solo success with such singles as ‘Everything I Own’ and ‘The Crying Game’, he launched an illustrious career as an international DJ and later penned and starred in the West End and Broadway musical ‘Taboo’. 30 years on from his ‘poster boy’ days of the New Romantic era, the icon’s androgynous looks and personal life continue to fascinate the world’s media. The new release will celebrate the great Italian ballads of the 60’s – in particular, those that became English-version hits including ‘Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te)’ (Dusty Springfield’s ‘You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me’), ‘Il Mio Mondo’ (Cilla Black’s ‘You’re My World’) and ‘La Vita’ (Shirley Bassey’s ‘This Is My Life’).

A passionate believer that anybody can learn to sing, Matthew is now forming a choir of all ages* and abilities to back the star and a full orchestra in this live recording at the prestigious Ingestre Hall, Staffordshire. Affirming his belief, Jones most recently formed a choir for an all-star tribute to Dusty Springfield at London’s Royal Albert Hall to critical acclaim. Rehearsals commence in January in Erdington, Birmingham. Full training will be provided. For further information, contact Jenny Sloan at Matthew Jones Music Ltd on 0121 632 2330 / 07941 918 688.

* Whilst there is no upper limit, participants must be at least 16 years of age by 25/01/12
