Teen's song is tribute

The family of a teenager from Liverpool who died in a crash on his way home from a music festival say a song written by him will help to show his talent to the world. 18 year old Michael Molloy died in a crash on its way home from the Bestival. 'Rise and Fall' will be released next week.

"It was Michael's ambition to have his music recognised by the wider world. He never fulfilled that ambition so we, his family, are fulfilling it for him. Michael can never come back and we will never cease to grieve for him. We think about him every hour of every day. But Michael's passion for music and his talent was one of the qualities which defined him and we want the rest of the world, through his music, to understand and appreciate in a small way just what a special human being he was."
