BBC Confirms Release Date Of Celebrity Fundraising Album Got It Covered



BBC Children In Need's fundraising album Got It Covered will be released in stores and online on Friday 1st November 2019, the BBC has revealed. The brand new venture involves some of the UK’s biggest names from stage and screen as they band together to produce an entire album of cover songs whilst helping to make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK. David Tennant is one of the stars taking to the studio to record a song as his contribution to the project.

This incredibly exciting venture from BBC One and BBC Children in Need also involves Helena Bonham Carter CBE, Jim Broadbent, Olivia Colman CBE, Shaun Dooley, Luke Evans, Suranne Jones, Adrian Lester OBE, Himesh Patel and Jodie Whittaker. The album of cover songs aims to help make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK. 
Also linked to the project, special 60-minute programme, airing on BBC One later this year, will follow the entire recording process and explore all the behind-the-scenes action, as the actors face the challenging task of laying down their bespoke tracks at the legendary recording studios RAK and Abbey Road Studios in London. Each of the actors will handpick a song that is most significant to them and receive expert guidance from Brit and Mercury award-winning record producers and songwriters Guy Chambers and Jonathan Quarmby. Renowned vocal coach Mark De-Lisser will also be at hand to assist the actors with producing their tracks. 

Children in Need: Got It Covered is a co-production by BBC Studios and 20four7films. It has been commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content and Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown. The executive producers are Mel Balac and Polly Dooley and the director is Peter Coventry.
BBC Children in Need is the BBC's annual charity appeal which aims to provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. It relies on the generosity and creativity of the thousands of supporters and fundraisers who raise millions of pounds for the charity every year. To date, the UK public has raised over £1 billion for children and young people facing disadvantage across the UK. This year's fundraising appeal day will take place on Friday 15th November and will centre on a marathon entertainment show on BBC One. 
The album is available to pre-order now from amazon.co.uk here.
