IT WAS a soulful performance fit for a Queen.

Vicar Timon Singh and his daughter Tabitha sang their hearts out as they performed their duet, 60 Words of Love.

The pair are now hoping the tune will become the song of this year’s Diamond Jubilee.

It was written by Mr Singh, who is a massive fan of the Royal family and sends them poems and letters whenever there is a special occasion.

He performed his tune at the altar of St George’s Church in Waterlooville, with local people and the mayor of Havant sitting in the audience.

The 52-year-old said: ‘The experience was daunting because it was like “here we are, we are actually going public”.

‘It was very inspiring and fulfilling.’

Mr Singh plans to send a CD of the song to the Queen.

‘I would love her to hear what I am saying,’ he said.

‘It’s about her and it’s for her.

‘It’s to celebrate our Britishness which begins with the Royal family.’

He and Tabitha, a 24-year-old nurse, will perform the song again on June 3 at a thanksgiving service at the Sacred Heart Church in Waterlooville.

‘We are rehearsing every time we get a half-hour,’ added Mr Singh.

‘We want to perfect it.’

Sales of the single will go to the Army Benevolent Fund.

The song is available on iTunes by searching Timon and Tabitha.
