Tim’s song When I Grow Up, written for Matilda The Musical, has been released to raise funds for two wonderful charities: the The Children’s Medical Research Foundation, Crumlin and The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

Available to download worldwide, from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all global digital stores, with CDs available from HMV and Xtra-vision, in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Remember, if you’d like to support these charities more than once you can gift the song on iTunes like this.

Produced by Stephen Macken, the single was recorded at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin, by the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS) and features Shane Filan and Grace Lee and a chorus of over two thousand – the largest ensemble choir ever gathered for a charity single in Irish chart history. Grace, from the Isle of Man, has had ten heart procedures for Congenital Heart Disease and suffers from Chronic Lung Disease.

The recording is dedicated to the memory of Jack Lam from Castlebar in Co. Mayo, who sadly passed away just a month after submitting his ‘When I Grow Up’ photo. More about Jack and the recording can be found here.

Can this Irish charity recording of When I Grow Up knock X-Factor off the number one Christmas spot in Ireland?
