Chris Gayle’s philanthropic side comes to fore as charity single featuring him gets launched

West Indian cricket-star Chris Gayle is a news-maker. When playing cricket, his big-hitting exploits or his flirtatious conversations with TV presenters keep him in the news. Similarly, when he is not playing, his off-field ‘live life king size ‘activities set the media abuzz.

This time around, the flamboyant Jamaican has managed to hit the headlines for a noble cause. The 36-year-old cricketer featured in a charity single recently. The song titled We Heroes, sung by British singer/songwriter of Indian origin Akash Mehta, was released on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.

Gayle shared this piece of information through his official Instagram account with the caption: My charity single with @mehta_a called #WeHeroes is out now!! All proceeds go to @unicef and is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify! Also check out the lyric video on YouTube.com/AkashMehtaVevo (link in my bio)

All proceeds from the song will go to UNICEF. Gayle is presently in Australia to participate in the Big Bash League (BBL) for the Melbourne Renegades. He will later turn up for the Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the ICC World T20 2016 in India.
