X Factor vs The Soldiers

Ok so dont get me wrong I enjoy the x factor, I watched most weeks etc, I was rooting for certain people and I would tweet about it etc.

Now we all know through past history that chances are its going to be number one this year at xmas. But why not something for a more worthy cause? Such as the talent of the Soldiers who have recorded their own album in aid of the army benelovent fund. The Album can be found HERE

Dont get me wrong I know that for the X Factor winner I’m sure all they want is a number one and to be honest I see Joe as a one hit wonder like many of the other winners, Steve Brookstein, Shayne Ward, Leon Jackson … to name but a few! So why waste our pennys on someone that even if he does make it any further will have a grannies album that very few are going to buy.

These wonderful men who everyday are putting their lives on the line for us in Iraq and all over the world to help protect our country and who are losing their lives at a rapid rate, 100 men we have lost this year! Surely thats worth spending 0.79p on a single or 8.99 on an album for these inspirational men.

So will I be buying Joe Mceldrys song? Hell no! Have I already brought The Soldiers album, Yes I certainly have!
