Gurrumul to sing for the Queen

The Australian indigenous singer Gurrumul will perform a specially commissioned song at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert in London as part of a chorus of stars.

Gurrumul Yunupingu will share the stage with musical heavyweights like Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tom Jones, Sir Elton John and Sir Cliff Richard on Monday, 4th June.

They'll perform the song Sing, which was written by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow as part of musical celebrations for the Queen's 60-year reign.

The song has been recorded at studios around the world, including Australia, and Gurrumul's contribution is featured in the chorus, where he sings in his native Yolngu language.
