Singers Jamie Watson and Krissie Du Cann are hoping their new single will wipe the JCB song, Crazy Frog or a flock of Lake District sheep off the top slot in the Christmas charts.

Jamie and Krissie have released a single called Believe Me which went on sale in the Virgin Megastore, Churchill Square, Brighton, on Wednesday. It will raise money for the Pride in Brighton and Hove charity.

The song was penned by Jamie, 31, from Saltdean, about ten years ago when he began his performing career.

He got together with fellow performer Krissie, of Peacehaven, to record the single with music production from Brick Hit House Productions.

Virgin Megastore has agreed to waive its profits from the sale of the CD. The CD costs £3.50 and about 75 per cent of the sales will go to the charity, which organises the annual winter and summer Pride event in Brighton and Hove, including the August carnival and festival in Preston Park, Brighton.

Jamie, a passionate Pride supporter, said the song would appeal to both the mainstream and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The pair launched the single at the R Bar in Madeira Drive, Brighton, at which a hundred copies were sold.

The single will have to make a lot of festive sales if it has any chance of beating Christmas number one contenders such as Nizlopi's The JCB song, the Crazy Frog with Jingle Bells or the musical bleating "Baarmy Sheep" from Cumbria.
