BBC News: MP Jo Cox charity single recorded by music stars and politicians

November 17, 2016 ,

Music stars and politicians have come together to record a charity single in memory of the late MP Jo Cox. Mrs Cox, 41, was killed in her West Yorkshire constituency of Batley and Spen on 16 June.

Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson, Cockney Rebel's Steve Harley and KT Tunstall are among those who have recorded the track with a group of 20 MPs.

A version of The Rolling Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want was recorded in Purfleet,

Essex, earlier. Labour MP for Cardiff West Kevin Brennan, a member of MP4 and organiser of the project, said he felt the song reflected the ethos of Mrs Cox.

"Jo Cox was someone who really tried very hard until she got what was needed and that's a message within the song.

"She also said that people should work together - that we are stronger together, there's more that unites than divides us.

"So we wanted to do something that reflected that and would help raise awareness of the foundation."
