Teenage pop group, SweetCheeks, took to the streets of London last week to play their part in releasing a charity single in honour of murdered soldier, Lee Rigby.

The Romford-based quintet were one of 10 acts chosen to sing on the single, Miss You Machine, after winning their age category in TeenStar UK - finishing as runners-up overall behind the X Factor’s Luke Friend.

Launched in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, organisers are hoping the single will make an assault on the UK singles chart - as well as raising cash for The Fusiliers Aid Society.

Known collectively as Together In Harmony, the super-group - featuring SweetCheeks - is also made up of various finalists from last year’s Open Mic UK competition.

The group gathered before Christmas last year to record the track at a studio in Chiswick, based around the story of a boy who builds a machine to revisit memories of his dad.

SweetCheeks’ Summer Emery said: “It’s such a lovely song, with a really strong message and we had a fantastic time recording it last year.

“We are very excited to be part of this and to work with all the other talented artist for such a good cause.”

The group, who are all part of the Emery Stage School, in Rainham, have been together for three years and performed at the Havering Show last summer alongside the likes of Lydia Lucy and The Hollies.

The charity single, Miss You Machine, is likely to found in the UK top 40 singles chart on Sunday. The single is available to buy at whatever price you want to pay, though all donations of more than £4 will receive a CD copy as well as a digital download.
