ECHO member Pete and his band The Magic Es’ new single ‘Hope’ was written by ECHO member Pete while his daughter was in intensive care after being born with congenital heart disease.
The band’s new single, released on 10 April 2020, is launched with all proceeds raised from streaming and downloading being donated to ECHO.
Pete, who is singer and guitarist of the band, describes the family’s experience, leading up to writing the song:
It was an incredibly stressful time. My wife and I were pretty much living at the hospital for about 3 weeks. They had a battered piano at the accommodation block and the song just came out in about 15 minutes one evening.
ECHO supported the family at what is for many a time of uncertainty and isolation.
Getting support from ECHO – telling us as parents what to expect, and putting us in contact with other families in the same situation – was a life-line at an incredibly stressful time.
We at ECHO are incredibly thankful to Pete and the whole band, who through donating the song’s proceeds will be supporting other families going through similar experiences.
As the charity don’t receive any government funding and they’ve done so much for my family I want to give back.
Hope is released from Friday 10 April 2020 for download and streaming from all the usual music streaming services.
