Following Her Majesty the Queen’s moving address to the nation at this time of national crisis, ​Dame  Vera Lynn​ and ​Katherine Jenkins ​have come together to release a duet of ‘​We’ll Meet Again’​.

Out on  Saturday 11th April​, 100% of Katherine Jenkins and Decca Records’ proceeds from the single will be  donated to ​NHS Charities Together ​to ​support the incredible NHS staff and volunteers caring for  COVID-19 patients.   

Dame Vera Lynn said: ​“The words ‘We’ll meet again’ speak to the hope we should all have during  these troubling times”. 

Katherine adds: ​“As Dame Vera herself has said, while the lyrics of ‘We’ll Meet Again’ take us back to  the time of WW2, the sentiment feels appropriate and meaningful today and relevant to the current  crisis. It is a song of hope and Dame Vera and I sing this in honour of (and in aid of) our superhero  NHS workers and their families. They are putting themselves at risk to ensure we will meet our  dearest again.”
