Sales of Girls Aloud's Hear Me Out surge as fans get behind the song in honour of Sarah Harding
Sales of Girls Aloud track Hear Me Out have surged as fans campaign to get the song back into the Official Singles Chart in honour of Sarah Harding, as she releases her autobiography of the same name.
Last year Sarah revealed she was battling breast cancer and earlier this week shared the sad news in an extract from the memoir where she was told: "The upcoming Christmas would would probably be my last".
The book is named after one of Sarah's favourite Girls Aloud songs, a track from their 2004 album What Will The Neighbours Say?.
Sales of the song have surged this week as fans get behind the track, landing at Number 18 on this week's Official Singles Downloads Chart.
Members of the Girls Aloud have also thanking the fans for their efforts to get behind the song. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Nicola Roberts said: "This is amazing! Thankyou for doing this for Sarah. To be able to tell her this is so special."
Kimberley Walsh added: "What a lovely thing you guys are doing Sarah will love this! Everyone go go go download if you can!"
Sarah has also responded to the messages and support she’s been receiving, posting on Twitter: "I can’t thank everyone enough for all the kind and loving messages that I’ve received since the weekend."
I can’t thank everyone enough for all the kind and loving messages that I’ve received since the weekend. It means so much to me and to my mum. Today’s a special day because it’s publication day for Hear Me Out. At last. I actually can’t believe I’ve done it! pic.twitter.com/LPt4Y8Zr0T— Sarah Harding (@SarahNHarding) March 18, 2021
