Shortland Street stars release Christmas charity single

The special song will feature on the season finale!
Shortland Street stars release song for charity

Much-loved Kiwi drama Shortland Street is set to a wrap for the year in just over a week’s time.

And while details of the cliffhanger’s storylines are a closely guarded secret, there’s word two of its cast members will be singing.

The song won’t just be limited to the show’s season closing either. It’s now been recorded by Lionel Wellington (Leroy) and JJ Fong (Ruby) as a single and released as a charity fundraiser, NZME reports.

“When Shortland Street asked me to record a song I didn’t hesitate. I got to be in the same recording studio as many great NZ music artists and lend my voice for a great cause,” JJ said.

The song is entitled Time of the Year and is available for download (presale) today.

Proceeds from the single will go to the Starship Foundation in support of the children’s hospital.
