TWO Huddersfield teenagers are likely to find themselves on top of the charts tomorrow.
Ashford Campbell and Jordan Higo both feature on The X Factor’s charity single, Wishing On A Star.
And the song is widely expected to reach Number 1 in the official charts tomorrow evening.
The single also features the other contestants who made the live shows along with previous contestants JLS and One Direction.
The release has been outselling its nearest expected competitor – Olly Murs’ Dance With Me Tonight – by more than two copies to one this week, according to the Official Charts Company. The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Bradley will receive a share of the cover of the Rose Royce hit.
The single has been recorded by the ITV competition’s 16 finalists including Lowerhouses singer Ashford, a member of the boyband The Risk, and Nu Vibe band member Jordan, of Crosland Moor.
They were joined by boy bands One Direction and JLS – both former X Factor groups.
Both Ashford and Jordan returned to the X Factor stage last Sunday to perform the song, which was met with a standing ovation from the studio audience.
Both singers will also be joining The X Factor Live Shows tour in the new year.
The proceeds will be donated to Together for Short Lives – a charity which represents 23,500 children and young people across the UK who are unlikely to reach adulthood.
The newly-built Brackenhall hospice will be handed a share of the proceeds, along with other causes around the country.
Forget Me Not Trust chief executive Peter Branson said: “After 12 years of fundraising, the hospice build is now complete.
“Support like this will help us greatly.”
The CD went on sale on Monday and a download version was available from last weekend.
At least £1 from each CD and 20p for each download will be given to charity.
Previous charity singles by The X Factor have raised huge sums.
In 2008 it made £1m for Help for Heroes and in 2009 there was £400,000 of fundraising.
