It may be only early August but the competition for the Christmas number 1 in the UK is hotting up. Big name artists like Mary J. Blige, Leona Lewis, Olly Murs and possibly One Direction are all in the running for the coveted position but there are Christmas records being made by the likes of Fynnjan Leach-Verhoeven (who looks a little like a very youthful Cliff Richard) which might just surprise everyone. 11 year old Fynnjan’s story is pretty unique in that he suffers from Asperger Syndrome but he has belied his years by writing and recording a Christmas song called ‘The Spirit of Christmas’. With all proceeds going to the National Autistic Society the record is certainly worthy of your money and if ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ goes all the way to number 1 Fynnjan will become the youngest artist to ever achieve the feat. He was joined by his Dad (a musician himself) and 30 of his classmates for recording at Runaway Studios. Keep an eye out on Fynnjan’s soundcloud page for the arrival of ‘The Spirit of Christmas’.
