Kimberley Walsh: "Only natural to get involved and help celebrate the county I love"

Bradford singer Kimberley Walsh has been reacting to the news that she is to feature in a special song to mark Yorkshire's Grand Départ in July.

"The Grand Départ coming to Yorkshire for the first time ever is an historic moment and whether you love cycling or not, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. To work with Alistair on the official anthem for the Grand Départ is exciting – it’s an emotional, rousing track that people can sing along to."
