Crusaders storm charts with charity single
August 6, 2013
The Crusaders' charity single 'Never Walk Away' has already received nearly 60,000 views on YouTube and is making strides in New Zealand's iTunes chart. The single - which features Crusaders' Andy Ellis, Robbie Fruean, Israel Dagg, Willi Heinz and Telusa Veainu singing - is in aid of Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand.
Ellis, who told the NZ Herald that he drew inspiration from Westlife and the Backstreet Boys, said: "We are really stoked at the response. All of us are thrilled at the enthusiasm of the New Zealand public for this song and also for helping raise money for cystic fibrosis. We encourage people who have not yet bought the song off iTunes to do so. The more people that buy the song, the more money we can raise for the Cystic Fibrosis Association."
