Lindee Lends Voice to Raise Money for Charity
A Cambridge schoolboy has created a viral music hit on Youtube to raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Callum Irving, 12, collaborated with his online friends to write a Minecraft themed video to support homeless charity Wintercomfort.
The Chesterton Community College student is a huge fan of Minecraft, an online game that allows users to create 3D worlds, and his parody song has reached almost eight million views on Youtube.
The 'Mine Song' lyrics are brought to life by Youtube singer Lindee Link, a 22-year-old Texan and 23-year-old German animator Blue Jerome.
So far the video has generated around £1,000 to go towards supporting Wintercomfort's work.
