They almost made it!

The campaign to get Viola Beach to No 1 in the UK charts almost worked.

Whilst the song hovered around positions 2 and 3 in the iTunes chart it reached No 11 in the Official Charts when sales closed on Friday.

Whilst it is a massive shame that the ultimate goal wasn’t achieved, I think the way that people pulled together to support this campaign was a real credit to everyone involved.

I hope the proceeds from sales go towards a fitting tribute for a band who were on the cusp of greatness.

Wherever they are now, I hope the boys carry on singing!
