BBC Snubs Troop Support Effort

H/T Susan Katz Keating

Background brief: Earlier this year, a group of musicians and singers gathered at London's famed Abbey Road Studios to record a gorgeous anthem, "We Will Remember Them." The song honors troops killed in action. The stellar musical group includes The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Pipes & Drums from the Scottish Regiments, Michael Bolton, Robin Gibb, and singers your kids would recognize. It was the biggest-ever one-day session at Abbey Road. As you will see, the result is GORGEOUS. The recording supports an excellent cause. All proceeds from the downloads / CD sales in the UK will go to Help for Heroes and The Royal British Legion. The soldiers themselves - and their families - love the song. In Britain, it even has been played at the funerals of troops killed in action in Afghanistan.
