Gregory joins Julie London in aid of Make A Wish

Marks & Spencer released their festive ad in the UK recently, set to Julie London’s version of ‘Fly Me to The Moon’, which follows two fairies named Magic and Sparkle as they clock in for work at the Fairy Factory then fly across the country spreading Christmas joy and making dreams come true with a click of the fingers.

Some extra magic is now added as M&S unveil a new version with Gregory dueting across the decades with the late Julie London, on the same track. Gregory’s part of the duet was recorded just weeks ago, but with today’s studio techniques, has been blended with Julie London’s (recorded in 1963) to sound as if they were sharing the studio. To duet with Julie London is indeed a dream come true for Gregory, in keeping with the advert’s theme:

“I’m so glad to be able to sing with the great Julie London. The magic and fire of music never dies …nor does the spirit of Christmas!” - Gregory Porter

Decca Records and Marks & Spencer have partnered with the Make A Wish charity for the release, allowing the single to continue to make children’s wishes come true beyond the festive period.*

Download the single from Amazon, iTunes or Google Play now!

* 100% of Decca’s net profits from the sale of each download of the “Fly Me To The Moon” single, which will be a minimum of 50p per download, will be donated to Make-A-Wish® UK.

Eleven years after her passing, Nina Simone still fascinates. Her work will forever be universally celebrated as that of a major figure in American 20th century music. Universal Jazz pays homage to her with an album in which her emblematic titles have been revisited by the cream of the new generation’s Pop and Soul artists. Gregory has recorded a beautiful version of Black Is The Colour (Of My True Love’s Hair) – available now on AmazoniTunes or Google Play
