Bell X1 frontman Paul Noonan has written a song about his young daughter Aislinn, with all proceeds going to Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin.
'Hole in her Heart' is released via Noonan's solo vehicle Printer Clips and features his wife Amy Van Den Broek.
“When our little girl Aislinn was nine days old we took her to Crumlin hospital as she had been in pain and in distress for long enough, and we didn't know what else to do. Turns out she had a bad intestinal infection, and there she stayed for three weeks, in the aptly named Nazareth ward," he explains. "One of the tests at the time showed that she has a hole in her heart - I remember staring at the screen, watching the tiny hole open and close with her heartbeat, winking at me...
"We were really taken aback by the love and tender care she received in Crumlin, and would like to do something for them in return. So, I've written a song called Hole in Her Heart, and recorded it with Aislinn's mama Amy. We'd like to put it out there to raise some money and possibly more importantly awareness of the fact that Crumlin still needs our help in taking care of our kids when they get sick”.
The song can be purchased via www.cmrf.org/heart and can also be downloaded via iTunes.
