Ellie Goulding's beautiful new ballad 'How Long Will I Love You' has been announced as the official single for this year's BBC Children in Need appeal.
The single, a cover of The Waterboys song for the new Richard Curtis film 'About Time', will help raise money to support disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
Goulding said in a statement: "I've grown up watching BBC Children in Need so it's fantastic that Im doing this years single. It is an emotional song, but in a really positive way, and I've been completely blown away with the positive reaction it's had already."
Last year Girls Aloud supported the campaign with their comeback single 'Something New'.
Goulding will perform the track on the BBC Children in Need Appeal Show airing live on BBC One on Friday 15 November at 7:30pm. The charity single will be available to pre-order from 7 October and for full download from 10 November.
