Joanna Lumley stars as actors launch charity poetry CD
Many music lovers compare the lyrics of Morrissey or Dylan to poetry, now the public will be offered the real thing with the release of an album featuring famous actors reading poetic works.
The actors led by Joanna Lumley have recorded 27 poems for a charity album, Words For You, that will be released by Universal next month. It qualifies for the chart because the verse has been set to classical music.
The release coincides with National Poetry Day, the album is to receive a television advertising campaign, as the industry targets a growing band of middle-aged consumers who pushed 92 year old Dame Vera Lynn to the top of the album chart last month.
The celebrities involved have donated their royalties so that proceeds can be donated to I CAN, the children’s charity.
