Ian Wills talks about getting Princess Diana’s letters and his Top 30 Amazon top selling charity single for cancer “ Mercy”

Notorious performance poet and lead singer of Wills and The Willing, Ian Wills has released a touching charity single ‘Mercy’, under the pseudonym of London Country, with all proceeds being donated to Charity. The song has reached No 29 on the Amazon pop chart, No 56 of the top 100 songs on Amazon and is tipped to enter the official U.K charts. Wills has been surrounded by controversy throughout his life, being the man who attempted to buy Princess Diana’s letters to her lover James Hewitt, whilst also illegally selling copies of Peter Wright’s ‘Spycatcher’ in 1987. The song is a powerful ballad that speaks candidly about past sins, reflecting Wills’ own personal journey of man determined to turn his life around. Mercy is the first single off London Country’s new album ‘Three Chords & The Truth’, which is set for release next year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY5YSlXwvqg What inspired you to become a singer/songwriter ?
