Shinny For Christmas Number One
Manchester's own James Davenport - also known as Shinny is making a bid for this year's Christmas number one in aid of Wipe Your Tears!
Having made it to number 24 in the UK charts last year he now hopes to surpass this with the confidently titled track "Christmas Number One".
All profits from the campaign go to Wipe Your Tears - a local charity committed to assisting in the care and financial support of seriously and terminally ill children and their loved ones. A great charity doing brilliant work, which you can read all about here.
No wonder he has the backing of a bunch of celebrities from across the globe - from Jon Richardson, Gary Lineker and Jason Manford to Tony Hadley and Brian Blessed - you only need to check out his Instagram to see how widespread the support is!
