A CHARITY single has been released in memory of Brooke Reid, the 12-year-old Ballymena girl who tragically lost her life in a house fire in September.
It is a cover of the Christmas classic ‘When a Child is Born’ and is performed by Andrew McMurdie, Steve Farlow, Alastair Coyles and Jessica Clail.
In a message on the CD cover Andrew McMurdie says: ‘In loving memory of our friend Brooke Reid who tragically lost her life due to a house fire.

‘We hope to honour her memory and life by raising money for Ballykeel Together Development Association; Bright Stars Special Needs Youth Club and also hope to erect a memorial plaque in Dunclug College, Ballymena, which she attended. May her gentle soul rest in peace.’
In a social media post, Andrew added: “This was a very meaningful, touching and special project close to my heart and I was glad my good friends Steve Farlow, Alistair Coyles and Jessica Clail agreed to assist me.
“They very kindly put their vocals, with myself, to a charity Christmas single in memory of a family friend, young Brooke Reid from Ballykeel, Ballymena.”
He added: “Delighted folks that the single is doing well.”
