Military Wives "Over the Moon" at Christmas Number One

Military Wives "Over the Moon" at Christmas Number One

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 8:27am 28th December 2011.

The Military Wives say they are still 'pinching themselves' after making Christmas number one.

Charity single 'Wherever You Are' clinched the top spot on Sunday.

The hundred strong choir sold more copies than the rest of the top 12 put together, including X-Factor winners Little Mix.

Emily's husband is with 29 Commando in Plymouth and she says, "It's really nice that, actually, we're doing something for ourselves. When you're a military wife you dedicate so much time to being strong for your children, being strong for your husband, supporting his career, moving around every couple of years; it's just really lovely".
