Manx singer and film star Samantha Barks has recorded a new song in aid of BBC Children in Need.

You Fixed My Broken Wings will be released worldwide on March 17 as part of a charity album.

Meanwhile she will be attending the BAFTA Awards, taking place at London’s Royal Opera House on Sunday.

She is included in a list of confirmed ‘presenters and other attendees’ alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Irons, Uma Thurman and Kiefer Sutherland.

The album, Love on 42nd Street, has been written by composers Daniel and Laura Curtis and all profits will go directly to charity.

Sam features alongside West End and Broadway stars Lea Salonga, Sierra Boggess, Simon Bowman, John Owen Jones, Katy Treharne and 2013 Your Voice competition winner Kasia Howley.

Earlier this week, Dan and Laura said onTwitter that it was a ‘pleasure to record’ with Sam.

Kyleigh Maddox is one of a number of fans to be delighted that Sam features on the album.

‘You couldn’t ask for a better voice,’ she said on Twitter.

‘I have idolized her since she played Eponine for the 25th anniversary of Les Mis.’

Sam is best known for the role of Eponine in the Oscar-winning film Les Misérables and has since gone on to star in The Christmas Candle.
