The singer/songwriter who made national waves with his 2019 performance on Britain's Got Talent, is offering to hand deliver copies of his single 'Cos It's Christmas.

Derek said: "I hope I can play some part in making people feel happier this Christmas after a difficult year with the pandemic.

"So I thought it would be great to deliver to people's houses, while staying socially distanced of course, and will be doing this Island-wide for anyone wanting a present that's a little different.

"My philosophy is to share happiness and music, with the hope of something positive in the pipeline for 2021."

The track was originally released in 2017, accompanied by one of the uplifting music videos Derek has become well known for, filmed at the Needles.

The charismatic entertainer hopes to mix things up in the New Year, releasing new material and focusing on Motown as well as Reggae.

Derek has asked people who would like to purchase a copy of 'Cos It's Christmas, which will cost £5 with delivery included in the price, to contact him through his Facebook page with their details.
