Support Justice for the 96, Buy ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”!

Earlier this year just after the revelations surrounding the Hillsborough tragedy finally began to emerge my club Everton stood shoulder to shoulder with Liverpool FC in a show of solidarity. Before the game vs Newcastle they paid beautiful tribute to the fallen 96, both clubs were represented: an Evertonian mascot in the shape of a little girl and a Liverpool Mascot in the shape of a little boy holding hands as the names of the 96 were displayed on a big screen. As an emotional version of the Hollies classic ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ blared out through the loud speakers and a heartfelt round of applause….

Fast forward a few months and a group called the Justice Collective gathered pop stars from Liverpool and beyond including Holly Johnson, John Power, Rebecca Ferguson, Paloma Faith and Paul Mcartney put together a Live Aid style cover of the same track, in aid of the Hillsborough families and justice for the fallen. Whether you like the cover or not is a besides the point this is worthwhile cause and will be a more symbolic Christmas number one than the latest Xfactor nonsense. I even bought it last night! So we are asking you to buy the track and offer your support to the Justice campaign the links are below.Or simply text ‘JUSTICE’ to 80010 to buy the track !
