Slawinski, who wrote the song as a tribute to the 96 who lost their lives on  15th April 1989, was only seven at the time of the tragedy.

Speaking to Sky Sports Christan said:

“It was hard to do – it’s an emotive subject. The fact someone like me has written this song all those years later shows it’s something that’s never going to go away. But for me, the strength in adversity shown by the families in the wake of the tragedy – that’s an inspiration for me, every day.”

Carragher, who was at the launch to show his support for the song said :

“It’s emotional, in this week of all weeks, It’s a significant anniversary, 25 years. I think the only thing that makes it better is the fact that it looks like we’re coming to a conclusion that the families have wanted for so long.

“It’s a big part of the city, both Reds and Blues, what’s happened over the last few years is that a lot more people in the rest of the country have realised what fully went on. The families have been going to these services for 25 years. The longer it goes, the worse it feels for them, but it finally looks like we’re almost there.”
