The Songaminute Man (Ted McDermott) raised over £150,000 for the Alzheimer's Society this summer through carpool karaoke with his son Simon (Mac).

Due to the huge amount of requests from around the world for a physical album of Dad's songs, we've decided to try and fund this via crowdfunding.

For the last month or so we have been working out ways in which we can do this. We've costed this out ensuring that all copyright, production costs and distribution would be covered. Because of Dad's condition we're hoping to move fast as this will most likely be a once in a life time opportunity. We don't have much time.

We hope the album will feature 12 tracks from the Rat Pack era. Due to Dad's illness we're aiming to do this with as minimum pressure to Dad as possible - which means recording both in London and Blackburn.

We're aiming to make the best album possible at this stage - that means raising £74000 to cover the costs of producing the recording, editing, production and distribution of the album - any profits (if any) would be split between Dad (75%) and the Alzheimer's Society (25%) which we hope will go towards funding research.

We are aiming to be able to have the album distributed by Easter 2017 at the very latest.

    Thanks for everyone who's supported this so far. We're hoping to begin recording soon and hope to distribute to everyone who supported us around Easter time if all works out.

    We've nearly raised 30% of the funds for the album. We will try and make this album, but at this stage we're going to go all out and make it the best album we can. That means aiming to get the best musicians in the country to play alongside Dad. We're aiming high! Please keep sharing and spreading the message. This CD will not be available in shops.
