Kiera Dignam releases stunning Michael Jackson cover song in aid of Batman Ben

October 27, 2016 • By


Dublin crooner Keira Dignam has covered a Michael Jackson song in aid of tragic youngster Batman Ben.

The little superhero died from a rare cancer earlier this year – and his grief stricken mum now wants to help other children who are suffering with the same disease.

Five-year-old Ben Farrell, from Finglas, liked to be called, ‘Batman’ as he is a huge fan of the movie character, used all his super powers to fight off a stage IV Wilms tumour which was diagnosed on Christmas Eve last year.
His brave eight month battle took him to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Michigan for pioneering treatment after he captured the nation’s heart due to his family campaigning endlessly to raise money to help him.

The 65-year-old fashion designer has recalled meeting the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker at his ‘deserted’ Neverland home to discuss plans to collaborate on a clothing line, and he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw elephants and a giraffe in the grounds of the abode.

Speaking about the music legend – who died in 2009 – in his memoir ‘American Dreamer: My Life in Fashion and Business’, he wrote: ‘A choo-choo train, with a conductor and everything, picked us up. We were driving through Neverland, and no one was there. As we passed the Ferris wheel, it started up. Every seat was empty. We saw teacup rides and a racetrack and an amphitheater, all deserted.
