Newly released Stay At Home Stay Alive song raises funds for frontline healthcare workers

(New York, NY April 17, 2020) Some of Ireland’s leading musicians have banded together on a new track reminding people how important it is to stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak. 100% of funds raised from sale of the single entitled Stay At Home Stay Alive will be donated to charities supporting the frontline workers in the Irish and UK Healthcare systems.

The single is now available for download on iTunes for $1.29, and all proceeds will be split between the Republic of Ireland’s #OurHospitalHeroes and the Northern Ireland’s #HelpourHealthHeroes funds. Additional donations can be made directly to either fund by clicking on the links above. More details can be found here.

 “Stay At Home Stay Alive” was penned by Irish Celtic and Country star Nathan Carter and his manager John Farry. Carter is joined on the track by an all-star line-up of Irish artists including Irish Singer/Songwriter Brian Kennedy, three-time Eurovision winner Johnny Logan, Celtic Woman star Chloë Agnew and PBS darlings Tommy Fleming and Sean Keane. The track is accompanied by a video featuring a glimpse into the artists in their homes, as well as some of the brave frontline staff working tirelessly to keep us all safe. Click to view the video on Facebook or You Tube.

The inspiration behind creating Stay At Home Stay Alive came to Carter whilst reading an article by community leader, author and journalist Father Brian D’Arcy where he opined that someone should write a song for this time. Carter, who is used to a hectic touring schedule in normal times, reflected on what he could do to help while on lockdown in his Co. Fermanagh home.  

“With the help of my manager and co-writer John Farry, we put the lyrics together pretty quickly” says Carter. “Once we got the words and music down, I mentioned it to a few friends in the industry and the offers to get involved came flooding in. We are all in awe of the work people are doing to keep us safe, so it was so important to include them in the video. While the rest of us are safe at home, they go to work for us. Soon, we hope to sing and perform again for them and everyone else, but in the meantime, stay safe and stay home.”

Nathan Carter is a household name across Ireland and the UK. Weaving folk and pop genres spanning the Atlantic, Carter’s fusion of Celtic and country is unique and electrifying. Now at age 29, the highly acclaimed singer songwriter is one the most successful live acts on the Irish music scene. He has achieved huge chart success with five albums, two singles and two music DVDs all reaching No.1 on the Irish music charts. Nathan Carter will be on tour in the US later this year with his with his 6-piece band and signature sextet sound. For more information click Here!
