Gemma Hayes seeks Twitter requests for song to cover for free Christmas download!

Tonight Gemma Hayes posted an interesting update to her Twitter, that she plans to record a song this Thursday. She’s looking for requests from her Twitter followers on what song to cover – so if you’ve always wanted to hear Gemma play a certain song, then now’s your chance! The intention is to make the tune available as a free download over Christmas :)

Hey – an idea.I’ll record a cover and release it as a free download for Christmas.Catch is u choose the song. Most popular request wins xx

My choices would be Wham – Last Christmas, or Mew – She Came Home For Christmas

Send your request via Twitter to @gemma_hayes … but you’ll have to be quick

Update: ah… I didn’t spot that it doesn’t necessarily have to be a Christmas song :)

Okay, happy for it to be, but it doesn’t have to be a Christmas song.I’ll be recording it on Thursday. So suggestions before then please xx
