Katie Melua is to release this year’s official BBC Children in Need single, ‘Fields of Gold’, one of Sir Terry Wogan’s favourite songs.

After revealing the news live on BBC Radio 2, Katie said:

“I am delighted to have accepted the invitation by BBC Children in Need to record and release this single to support the charity’s 2017 Appeal, in honour of the late Sir Terry Wogan."

"He was a long-standing supporter of mine, and to re-record one of his favourite songs for a charity that was so dear to his heart is a privilege. I hope it goes on to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”

All profits from the single will go to the charity, with a minimum of 54p from each single sale.

Katie will also give the single its debut television performance live on the BBC Children in Need Appeal Show on Friday 17 November, at 9.50pm on BBC One.
