Invade the airwaves this Easter

Christian band Delirious? and an online campaign to "invade theairwaves" are trying to get popular Christian song 'History Maker' to No.1 in the UK Singles Chart this Easter! The group are encouraging Christians to dowload the single by Saturday 3 April.



DeliriousAn online campaign is underway to get Christian rock band Delirious? To the top of the music charts for Easter Sunday with its popular song HistoryMaker and Christians across Norfolk have been backing the bid.

Over 44,000 fans are backing the bid which will raise money for charity and was inspired by the fact that the power of social networking managed to put Rage Against The Machine at the top of the charts last Christmas.

Lucy Paculabo Mhondera, from Kingsway Music, said: “This got a few fans thinking: why not get a profoundly Christian song in the news and up the charts at Easter?”

In fact, two Facebook groups sprung up at the same time independently of each other, both passionate about seeing Delirious? back in the charts. Now both those Facebook groups have merged and the count of fans is over 46,000 and rising.

Lucy said:
“After a few discussions with Furious Records and Kingsway Music, we’re pleased to announce that two versions of the HistoryMaker single will be available for download only between March 28 and April 3. Fans will be able to choose between the original studio version or the live version taken from the band’s up and coming release ‘Farewell Show’, due out April 19.


“Delirious? have always been about the fans – and that will never change. So we’re pleased to do all we can to support them as they continue to wave the flag for a generation. We wish the fans every success.”

Delirious? will be donating all their profits from the UK downloads to charity projects supported by Compassion Art - Creating Freedom from Poverty.

Pastor Paddy Venner, said: “I think good Christian music needs some exposure – there are literally thousands of contemporary Christian artists out there who get no exposure in the UK but are household names elsewhere, so let’s give Delirious? a push and make some history.”
