I adore songs like this. They’re powerful, they’re motivating, they’re beautiful, they’re unifying. If only, if only could world peace be solved through music, then this would be one of the ‘weapons’ used.
1) Gary Barlow was involved!
2) The money received from people buying the single went towards charity!
3) The Military Wives formed together as a choir for women who’s husbands had left to go to war. Not only that, they were found by Gary and were invited to sing the song at the Queen’s Jubilee!!
This is my general trivia, if you know the solid foundations of this song, then I apologise! But man, this is a beautiful song.
