Say happy birthday with Skype and Charlie Simpson

Sometimes words just aren’t enough. When you really want to make a loved one gush, send your happy birthday wishes by way of a group video greeting. Better yet, get heartthrob, Charlie Simpson to sing along with you.

Simpson’s sweet, harmonious and romantic tones have propelled him to the top of the independent album charts. And the tune “Be Human” from his last album, Fightstar, makes us melt.

Charlie, a proud fan of Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elliot Smith and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, says that he uses Skype to stay in touch while he’s away on tour. “The Say it with Skype app is fun and I’m happy for this creative collaboration! Skype is a great communication platform; I get to speak to my girlfriend and my parents when I’m abroad on tour,” he reveals.

Now you can join Charlie in melting hearts. Just choose a friend and create your very own group video greeting. It’s sure to make someone’s birthday just a bit more special.
