A young singer will be taking to the stage in the heart of London to raise funds for tragic soldier Lee Rigby.

Singer songwriter Sarah de Warren will be performing in Trafalgar Square tomorrow at the launch of a charity single in memory of the murdered Fusilier.

The Langton Herring musician has helped to record a song which will raise funds for the murdered machine gunner’s son Jack and the Fusiliers Aid Society.

Lee Rigby was murdered outside Woolwich Barracks in May last year.

The single, Miss You Machine, was recorded at Metropolis Studios, London, just before Christmas.

The song takes the listener on a journey with a three-year-old boy who builds a machine to revisit memories of his dad.

The team performing the song features a range of young musicians.

Sarah’s mum Hilary said: “We’re going to go and support Sarah when she performs.

“The charity single will be performed then all the individual musicians will perform and do some covers.”

University student Sarah, 19, who recently recorded her new music video in Dorset, will be performing the song at the capital’s popular tourist spot from 2.50pm.

It will also be available to download from togetherinharmony at the same time.

People are being urged to download the track to break the record for the world’s biggest simultaneous download.

The Dorset starlet honed her skills on the streets of Dorset by performing covers at the young age of 13.

She later went on to develop a passion for writing and recording her own material with a developing interest in the technical side of music production.

Her dedication and talent went on to win a position in Live and Unsigned 2012’s grand finals in the O2 Arena as well as recognition for her songwriting in a UK contest.

The rising indie-pop star told the Echo that it was an honour to perform on Saturday.

She said: “It’s going to be a big event in Trafalgar square, very excited to sing.

“We hope everybody likes the song, everyone is there for Jack Rigby.”
