TWO Huddersfield entertainers have joined together to help a local charity.
Dezzi Dee and Father Foxy have brought out a CD and hope their musical efforts will raise much-needed cash for Kirkwood Hospice.
See It In Your Eyes was the result of a collaboration between the pair, who met at a show at The Deighton Centre.
Dezzi, otherwise known as Des Dakin, was singing and Foxy – real name Patrick Gayle – was the compere.
Dezzi, 37, of Fartown, said: “Foxy came up to me after the show and said he’d like to work with me. He had the words and I put the melodies together and we came up with See it In Your Eyes.
“It’s a bit of a reggae ballad, although my singing style ranges dramatically from Bobby Darin to the Arctic Monkeys!
“I lost my mum Vera in 2002 and I always wanted to do something for Kirkwood Hospice, which cared for her.
“I have been singing most of my life and still enjoy working the clubs and doing charity gigs.”
Foxy, of Town Avenue, Bradley Mills, is no stranger to musical success.
He brought out a techno track while living in London 15 years ago and saw it reach No 5 in the West Coast charts in the US.
He said: “Since I came to Huddersfield I have been doing a lot of work with music in schools, teaching the kids how to appreciate black achievements and avoid racism.
“I met Dezzi at Deighton and we got together to produce the song. We were just going to do a single, but we came up with others and made it a four-track CD.
“We’d like to do another charity CD next year, this time for Sickle Cell research.”
The CD is available at Kirkwood Hospice, Albany Road, Dalton.
