Family of missing British journalist Michael Dixon releases ‘Come Home’
feat. Kyra Simone
The family of Michael Dixon, a
British journalist who disappeared in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, on October
18, 2009 without a trace will release a song ‘Come Home’ sung by
London-based artist Kyra Simone.
Come Home is a
raw and emotional R&B soul track produced by David Dixon, the
brother of Michael Dixon, whose disappeareance happened while on
holiday. Proceeds from the UK and international release will
go to the Help Find Michael Dixon fund and to missing persons charities
around the world.
"When I wrote these lyrics, I connected with a deep feeling of loss but
also with hope. I want to touch people who have lost someone they love
and to create support from the media so that this type of thing is not
brushed under the carpet," Kyra Simone said.
Added David Dixon: "Music can go a long way -- by releasing this song I
hope to reach out to even more people and to show the world that we are
not going away until we get answers. I thank all those who participated
in making this such a great record."
Evidence indicates Michael Dixon was the victim of crime in a place
that markets itself as a safe holiday destination but which is in
reality controlled by violent drug gangs, his family said in a press
release. The Costa Rica police and the British government have done
next to nothing to find out what happened, the statement said.
The release of Come Home is the culmination of David Dixon's one-man
campaign to find his older brother and to spotlight the lack of support
for families of missing persons abroad.
Kyra Simone's music is frequently featured on BBC Radio 1XTRA and BBC 3
Radio Counties. For more information on the campaign to find Michael
Dixon see helpfindmichaeldixon.com.
