Cornwall makes a bid for Christmas number one.

Rotary International in the Duchy has released 'Christmas Time (Children Sing)'.

The ballad went on sale on Tuesday morning and is already sixth on Amazon's bestsellers list.

The song was written by songwriter and music producer AJ Lornie, who owns Forte Sounds recording studios in St. Austell.
It is sung by Cornish singer and TV presenter Shane Solomon: "This is insane. Cornwall has an opportunity to get into the Top 40 this Sunday on the national playlist."

At last glance the single was hot on the heels of Lily Allen, Gary Barlow and James Blunt. But Shane's staying grounded: "Let's not get ahead of ourselves, a top 100 or top 40 this Sunday in the chart would be amazing but it's really down to the people now to get this up the charts."

The single is raising money for Rotary International, which has 53,000 members in the UK and Ireland and 1.2 million across the globe. Shane added: "It's hard not to realise how many rotary clubs there are in Cornwall doing all this amazing work but it extends beyond that throughout the whole UK and the world. It will raise money for the rotary foundation and it's an easy way to help good causes."
