With the help of Dutch radio DJ Eric Corton ‘The Lost Boy’ is currently on the 2nd place in the Dutch iTunes Chart. It is also one of the most requested songs on Serious Request, a yearly returning charity project organized by 3FM and the Red Cross. This is what Greg has to say about it:
I wrote this song last week. It’s inspired by the heartbreaking story of “The Lost Boys” of South Sudan. This week it was picked up by a rather influential DJ in Holland called Eric Corton. Eric does a lot of humanitarian work in Africa with the Red Cross, I have a lot of respect for this man. He has since been getting it airplay on Dutch National Radio Station 3FM for a charity project called ‘Serious Request’. As of today, “The Lost Boy” is the 4th most requested song in the campaign. I am truly blown away and honoured to be part of such an amazing project. Last year they raised over 7 million euros for Red Cross.
For the special price of €1,29 you can buy the song on iTunes with proceedings going to this amazing cause.
Greg will be touring Europe next year, including 4 dates in the Netherlands in Zwolle, Nijmegen, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
