British pop singer George Michael has recorded a version of Stevie Wonder’s 1972 ballad “You And I” as a wedding gift to Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton, who will be married on April 29 at London’s Westminster Abbey. While the MP3 of the song is available for free on his website, Michael is asking everyone who downloads it to donate money to The Prince William & Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund.
Among the possible recipients from the Fund, there is an option under “Support for Services personnel and their families” to give to the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary.
On the site for The Prince William & Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund, it states that the pair created the fund to celebrate their wedding. “The fund will focus on assisting charities which support the five causes chosen by the couple. These causes are close to their hearts and reflect the experiences, passions and values of their lives so far. Having been touched by the goodwill shown to them since their engagement, they have asked that anyone wishing to send them a wedding gift consider doing so in the form of a donation to the fund.”
