Sounds like a fascinating project...anyone know any more? Can we listen to the song Barry? (sorry, my connection isn't up to testing things today!)

Amazon and iTunes have a few samples (none containing Moya's 'oohs and ahhs').

There's a website (http://www.magdalenesurvivorstogether.com/) which says the single and official music video will be launched tomorrow. Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/notes/lumiere/magdalene-laundry-survivors-charity-single-launch/211328982234983

In the meantime, here's a message from Moya: http://www.youtube.com/user/magdalenesurvivors#p/a/u/3/3Rzw5JP_wnQ

For those who are unaware of the atrocious treatment these women experienced whilst in the Magdalene Laundries take a look at this Wikipedia page

For a bit more background, and also a very sad song detailing the abuse from the point of view of a young, attractive woman, have a listen to this Joni Mitchell song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_KK6qOlb30.

Really wonderful.

Although is it my internet connection or is Moya's part of the song a bit out sound/visual wise?

Ignoring that though, really fantastic, and wonderful to know so many people support it.

There you stood in front of me
Dressed in glory, white to see
Spell-bound on the deep blue skies
Created on high
Cold and warm, you set one's heart
'Cause you're the mighty one
