A host of Irish musicians and bands have teamed up to record a cover of Michael Jackson's 'You Are Not Alone' for Pieta House.
Ryan O’Shaughnessy, Mary Byrne, Taken, Heroes in Hiding, Dublin Gospel Choir and more have recorded the song to raise both money for and awareness of the charity, which has helped almost 28,000 people rebuild their lives since 2006 and has treated approximately 5,000 people in each of the last three years. Pieta House offers counselling to people experiencing suicidal ideation and people who engage in self-harm and, as of this year, it also offers suicide bereavement counselling and operates the free 24-hour 1800 247 247 suicide helpline.
Ryan O'Shaughnessy said that he got involved "..because I feel it’s important for Irish people to discuss mental health. It’s important to give what you can to help those who need it. That’s what this single is all about”.
