A new single from a south east singer is raising vital funds for charity.
Wexford soprano Deirdre Masterson has recorded and released 'Oh Holy Night' in aid of the Julian Benson Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The money raised will go towards the creation of accommodation facilities for families of CF patients during their hospitalisations, as well as a respite facility for patients and families.
However, the fundraiser wasn't always meant to happen this way, she was originally due to perform a concert to raise funds but due to covid cases, they had to find another way to help this great cause.
Speaking to Beat, Masterson explained how it came about
"I was supposed to be performing at the charity ball on December 11th for Julian Benson Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we literally finished mixing the single and the correct decision was made given the covid daily case numbers, to cancel and reschedule.
Then we said, we're obviously gonna put this out as a single and try and raise awareness and much needed funds throught his medium in a way that we're safely able to do so at the moment."
Masterson talked about the facilities that will receive the funds;
"They very much need the funds and the funds that are gonna be raised will be going towards creating accommodation facilities for families of CF patients during their hospitalisations and also a respite facility where patients and their families can go and recuperate and rest together.
It's a very, very worthy cause and I'm delighted to be associated with it."
