Dorset Pensioner, Gordon Kerr is hoping to land this year’s Christmas number one with his band El C and their charity single called ‘Don’t cry for Christmas’
After 43 years apart Gordon and his band mates, Ian McConnell and Iain Macdonald, have reunited.
They’ve since teamed up cancer charities and produced a Christmas charity single.
Gordon Kerr spoke to Buzz about the new single and said: “The underlying meaning behind the song is that you go downhill but you get redeemed sometime, life turns good in the end if you make it work for you.”
We got to number two, ahead of Ed Sheeran, which is pretty cool.”
“Ian McDonnell, band mate, tragically lost two wives to cancer, one of them just earlier this year”
All three of the band members have been personally affected by cancer some way or another in the past.
