Legendary singer Chris de Burgh, has given his support to a new CD raising money for Liverpool's Henshaws Society for Blind People. The Interactive CD, called "Untrained Melodies", is the brainchild of Chris High from Upton, and includes 12 short stories inspired by de Burgh's hits. Chris, 37, a volunteer at Henshaws, is donating £1 from the sale of each £4.99 CD to the society. "I asked a friend to pass Chris some of my manuscripts. I heard nothing for ages, but was overwhelmed when the phone rang some months later to find Chris de Burgh thanking me personally." An audio CD will be made available later this month.

The Manchester Evening News (Circulation 162,000) release the following article: "A Happy Ending For Chris."

"Chris De Burgh's famous Lady In Red has been developed into an interactive story for the blind. It is one of 12 of his songs to be featured on a new CD Rom produced to raise cash for Henshaws Society for Blind People based at Trafford. The stories based on the songs, have been written by Chris High whose partner is a member of the centre
"There isn't much on the market for people with visual impairments, so I thought it would be a good idea to create a CD-ROM that they could use, sell it and make money for the centre" he explains
he decided to use the songs of Chris De Burgh because they lend themselves well to the stories. And when the Irish singer found out about the idea, he was keen to get involved.
"A friend of mine won a competition to meet him backstage at one of his concerts," he adds. "She took some of my stories and he loved them. He rang me up, gave me some suggestions and agreed to write a foreword."
We feel a musical coming on!"
