A Eurovision hopeful has revealed band members of tragic Amy Winehouse helped put together his melody for the song contest.
Miles Graham's Yeah We're Gonna Get Out Of It has been revealed as the sixth song hoping to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.
Earlier this week One Night, One Kiss, One Promise by Patrick O'Sullivan, That's Rich by Brooke Scullion, I'm Loving Me by Rachel Goode, Real Love by Brendan Murray and Ashes of Yesterday by Janet Grogan were also revealed to be in the running to fly the flag for Ireland in Turin this May.
Singer-songwriter Graham said: "I wrote the song around April/May 2020 while on the first lockdown at home with my kids. I'm so proud of this song and the way it organically came about. It's got a real sense of hope and community about it.
"It would be amazing if it ends up representing Ireland at the Eurovision. As a songwriter, to have my own children singing on the track is really so special.I try to create music that I want listen to and focus on trying to create unique melodies and lyrics.
"Piano and all vocals were recorded in my living room, and the rest in London. A nice addition was the brass and trumpet solo, which was played by members from Amy Winehouse's original touring brass ensemble."

Graham is originally from Clondalkin in Dublin and is now based in Co. Sligo.
He previously was a guest on Weekend Wogan on BBC Radio 2 in 2015 with the legendary broadcaster Terry Wogan.
He made his TV debut on The Late Late Show in 2018, with his song Let it Shine. He has since released several dance collaborations (Don Diabo, L'Tric, Tom Budin) as well as an EP All the Right Things in 2020. He currently has a dance collaboration, She is Gold, with Australian DJ outfit, L'tric.
A total of six songs were selected from hundreds of entries received by RTÉ following a callout for submissions last September.
The artists will perform the selected songs on a special Late Late Show on February 4, where the winner will be chosen by a combination of national jury, international jury and public vote and go on to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy, in May.
