Sing by Gary Barlow Piano Sheet Music



Artist Information

Gary Barlow, OBE (born January 20, 1971 in Frodsham, Cheshire, England) is an English singer, songwriter, bandleader and producer. He was one of the most successful songwriters of the 1990s, penning no less than 16 hit singles during the decade. Barlow was generally recognised as the musical talent behind the successful boy band Take That. This UK group were signed to RCA records and after a number of top 40 hits eventually secured their first Number 1 with Barlow’s “Pray.” Previous hits included “A Million Love Songs” and “It Only Takes A Minute.”

After the split of Take That, Gary released two albums, Open Road followed by Twelve Months, Eleven Days, but his second didn’t achieve the same level of success as his first, and he was subsequently dropped by his label. However he continued writing successful songs for other singers and bands until the reform of Take That in 2006.



Song Facts

Take That’s Gary Barlow and musical mastermind Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber co-penned this song for the Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It features 230 people and musicians from various Commonwealth countries including Australia, Jamaica, Kenya and the Solomon Islands plus Gareth Malone and the Military Wives choir. “Sing” was debuted by BBC Radio 2′s Chris Evans on May 18, 2012 and was released by Decca Records on ten days later.
Amongst the Commonwealth musicians that contributed to the song were Ska guitarist Ernest Ranglin, Reggae duo Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, Jamaican group The Jolly Boys and the African Children’s Choir. Barlow told the Press Association he was inspired by Prince Charles to recruit the wide collection of artistes for this tune. “I was just going to do it in London with the Philharmonic Orchestra,” he explained. “But once I’d met with him I realised we’ve got to go into the world. In my chat with him he said, ‘If you really want the Queen to like this, find people; go and travel and find people.’”
The seven-track Sing longplayer debuted at #1 on the UK album chart. With a duration of just 24 minutes, the record was the shortest chart-topper since Tommy Steele’s 19-minute-long The Duke Wore Jeans topped the Record Mirror Top 5 album chart in 1958. Show SheetsPiano Music Sheet.
