The family four-piece who moved Simon Cowell to tears on Britain’s Got Talent is to release a single on Father’s Day in aid of the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

The Neales will release their first self-penned track I'll Be There on independent label Zy Records  and will be available to buy on checkouts in over 750 Tesco stores around the country from Friday 10 June for £1.

The CD comes in a specially designed, personalisable sleeve that allows people to show their own Dad the love and appreciation he deserves, while also supporting a vitally important cause. The single will also be available for digital download.

The Neales are the four-part family harmony group that won the hearts of the nation during Britain's Got Talent 2015This time last year, the Britain’s Got Talent audience rose to their feet for a long and rapturous standing ovation as Laurie Neale (60) and his sons Phil (26), Dan (27) and James (30) performed their rendition of the Everly Brothers When Will I Be Loved.

As James introduced the group it was clear why the band were on stage. “10 years ago my dad had a heart attack, and he knew he had to change his life, and he loves singing. The three of us are here because we realise the reason he had that heart attack was because he ran himself into the ground trying to provide for us. So you’d have thought that when he asked us to come on Britain’s Got Talent to achieve his dream, we’d say yes, but it actually took three years of pestering” James revealed.

Laurie broke down in tears when the judges said “yes” four times after he and his three sons had sung in perfect harmony.  Amazingly, it was the four-piece vocal group’s first-ever public performance and it had taken years of constant nagging and a near death experience before Laurie could persuade his boys to sing as The Neales.

The Neales later made television history and moved Simon Cowell to tears following their performance of Cat Stevens’ Father and Son. Simon later said: "That actually got quite emotional. What has happened to me? It was a perfect song. I really like you guys."

Fellow judge Alesha Dixon summed up the sentiment of the British public stating: "People are going to make connection with you because the most important thing in the world is family."

Laurie Neale had a heart attack 10 years ago while helping to move a piano at a music school near the family home in Solihull, West Midlands. He suffered sudden and severe chest pains and believes his life was saved by the actions of a school nurse who stabilised him before an ambulance arrived.

 Laurie said: “I came so close to never seeing my boys grow up so I appreciate every second I have with them now. Music was always my passion and it became my therapy to de-stress after I almost worked myself into the grave. Enjoying music with my sons is all I’ve ever wanted.”

I'll Be There will be released on the 10 June with every single penny of all sales going to the Tesco chosen charities of The British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

Dan Neale added: "Adversity has made us so much stronger. We’re a special family with an unbreakable bond and that’s what ‘I’ll Be There’ means to us!"
