Rapper to record charity England song for World Cup 2010

A RAPPER from Datchworth has recorded a charity song which he hopes will propel England to glory in this summer’s football World Cup.

Jon Goodman, who performs under the moniker Testsite, has released the track, entitled Fabio Capello, on download sites iTunes and emusic.

The humorous song is set to the music of the much-loved children’s programme Postman Pat while the lyrics make reference to the physical likeness between the England boss and Greendale’s most famous resident.

Jon, of Great Lawne, said the purpose of the “fun” track was “to bring people together” ahead of the World Cup in South Africa.

He laughed: “People of all ages can relate to Fabio looking like Postman Pat.”

All the money raised from downloads will be given to a charity of Jon’s choice.
