A cover of an Elton John classic sung by an array of Irish artists in aid of a little Claregalway girl with a rare form of cancer has topped the official Irish single chart.

Tiny Dancer - A Song for Lily Mae was recorded by singers including Paddy Casey and Mary Black along with a 300-strong choir to raise money and awareness for 4-year-old Lily Mae Morrison who has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare and extremely aggressive childhood cancer of the nervous system.

Lily Mae says thanks!

The single hit No 1 on the iTunes chart last week and Elton John has tweeted and posed a message of support for Lily Mae and the song on his official website.

The organisers are now trying to keep the song at No 1 for Christmas.
