Kyra Simone PicCome Home is a raw and emotional R&B soul track by London-based singer Kyra Simone, the Gospel Outreach Ministry Choir and produced by David Dixon, the brother of British journalist Michael Dixon, who disappeared on holiday last year. Proceeds from the UK and international release will go to the Help Find Michael Dixon fund and to missing persons charities around the world. Michael Dixon walked out of his hotel room in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, on 18 October 2009 and vanished without trace. Evidence indicates he 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. Since Michael’s disappearance 12 other tourists have gone missing or been murdered in Costa Rica, none of these cases have been solved. 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: “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.” 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. Michael is a huge music fan and this is my tribute to him.” Kyra Simone’s music is frequently featured on BBC Radio 1XTRA and BBC 3 Radio Counties. She is currently working with UK funk R&B soul legend Carl McIntosh/Loose Ends and getting ready to release her album THE SCENT V2.
