The English singer Billy Bragg has shared his charity cover of Taylor Swift‘sOnly The Young’ – Watch it below.

Bragg revealed that the Taylor Swift cover came about after hundreds of people paid £1 each to vote for which song they wanted me to cover live on the internet. It was a close run thing between Jackson Browne’s ‘Before the Deluge’ and ‘Only the Young‘, with the Swift song winning by just 26 votes.

He continued, “When I sat down to learn how to play the song, it came out as a mash-up between ‘Only the Young’ and ‘Levi Stubbs’ Tears’. The same day, Taylor posted a powerful statement on Twitter calling out the white supremacy and racism inherent in Donald Trump’s condemnation of rioters protesting the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, so I tagged that onto the end of the song too.”

Thanks to everybody who took part in the voting. £1707 was raised for the RCN Foundation’s COVID-19 Support Fund which provides wellbeing support to healthcare workers

If you missed it live on Facebook last night here it is”
