Mànran, the six-piece band who are taking the Scottish music scene by storm with their Gaelic/English songs, jumped at the chance to make a single with Michelle.
“The boys were fantastic and got on board straight away and all that was left to do was find someone to produce the single,” she said.
“ There was only one man on my wish list but as he's on everyone's wish list to work with I knew the chances of getting Phil Cunningham were about as hopeful as getting myself bikini-ready for the summer, if it ever shows up. But, as luck would have it, I met the great man for a coffee and he agreed straight away.”
Talented singer/songwriter Michelle, who is also hosting the Dance Marathon, had already teamed up with Mànran to make a documentary for BBC Alba.
Mànran is a group of talented young men who are shaking up the traditional music scene by bringing it bang up to date and taking it to a whole new audience. Their single Latha Math was a mainstream hit last year.
The STV Appeal, now in its second year, will raise money to help the thousands of children in Scotland who live in poverty.
