Michael Molloy was just 18 years old when he was tragically killed in a coach crash on his way home from the musical festival ‘Bestival’ on the Isle of Wight in September 2012. Michael wrote the song ‘Rise and Fall’ when he was 17 which was recorded in a studio shortly before he died. A record producer showed great interest and it seemed that this song was their breakthrough and would be signed by a music label. Michael sadly never came home to find out the news. web domain He always believed that he would be famous for his talent and his music. The term ‘Legends Never Die’ has become synonymous with Michael.
Michael’s family are now working hard to promote the single with the ambition to make ‘Rise and Fall’ a chart hit in his memory, allowing his name to live on in music history and being remembered for his talent rather than his tragic death. It was Michael’s dream to have his music and talent both recognised and appreciated. Michael’s family feel that getting his song Rise and Fall to No.1 would be both fitting and deserving of his life and talent.
Huge Media helped to attract interest in the single by donating one of our HUGE Mobile Advans to help promote the single using an on-board PA system to play the song and 360 degree increase awareness of this fantastic song.
