Pop star Katie Melua has recorded Fields Of Gold, one of Sir Terry Wogan’s favourite songs, as this year’s official Children in Need single.
Unveiling the song, Melua said it was a “privilege” to pay tribute to the broadcaster by supporting the charity “that was so dear to his heart”.
“I hope it goes on to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of disadvantaged children across the UK.”
Melua premiered the song live on BBC Radio 2, which you can hear below.
She will give her first television performance of the song on Children In Need on Friday, 17 November.
The telethon, which will be hosted by Graham Norton and Tess Daly amongst others, will also see appearances from Rita Ora, Beverley Knight and Craig Revel Horwood, in character as Miss Hannigan from the West End musical Annie.
Sir Terry hosted the BBC charity event for 35 years until 2015, when poor health forced him to pull out. He died last year after a battle with cancer.
