Robin Gibb records charity single

Robin Gibb
Robin Gibb was born in Douglas

Manx-born singer Robin Gibb has recorded a song for charity with an Isle of Man choir.

The song, a version of national anthem Ellan Vannin which he sings with the King William's College choir, will raise funds for Hospice Isle of Man.

He said: "I think it is very important to involve young people in the national anthem, it's very special.

"It was a great pleasure working with a choir like this because they really know their stuff."

The song will be released around Christmas on CD and DVD.

Ellan Vannin, which means Isle of Man in Manx Gaelic, is known as the alternative national anthem.

The official anthem is Arrane Ashoonagh dy Vannin.

Robin, who was born in Douglas, lives on the Isle of Man with his wife, Irish artist and author Dwina Murphy-Gibb.
