Aaron pens a musical tribute
KENNEDY PARK man, Aaron Berry, was so moved by the tragic death of Nicola Furlong that he chose to write a song in her memory. The 30 year old singer/songwriter gave the people of Wexford their first taste of the track, ' This Is Not Goodbye', on South East Radio last Tuesday and says he has since received 'fantastic reaction' from the public.
The song is to be released this Friday, 20 July, on 'itunes' along with another song written by Wexford man, Tommy Hayes, who is now living in Florida. The second song is called 'Shout Out Your Name' and is sung by Heather Friedman, who is a native of Florida.
Aaron is busy contacting local businesses with a view to raising funds to cover the cost of producing hard copies of the CD which will be sold throughout the town at an affordable price of €3. All funds raised from the sale of the CD will go directly to the 'Nicola Furlong - We are Your Voice' voluntary group.
This group is busy raising funds to help cover the costs which the family will incur in travelling to Japan early next year for the trial of the man accused of her murder, Richard Hinds.
Aaron has already collected €800 which will allow him to produce 1000 CDs which will be sold throughout the town. He hopes that if he can sell all of these he will have raised €3000 for the cause.
Donations can also be made to the fund via the group's Facebook page where there is a link to a PayPal method of payment.
