The ex-Beatle's 'My Sweet Lord' is tipped to beat Pink and the Chemical Brothers to the top slot...

GEORGE HARRISON’s classic solo single ‘MY SWEET LORD’ is released today, hoping to raise money for a charity set up by the late Beatles.

The track, which originally went to the top of the UK singles chart in 1971, will raise funds for the Material World Charitable Foundation, who support charities worldwide, especially helping to fund work with children.

A chart expert at the Virgin Megastore in London told NME.COM that the track was the favourite to go to Number One this coming Sunday (January 20), although new releases from Pink, ‘Get The Party Started’, and the Chemical Brothers’ ‘Star Guitar’ were also likely to be high new entries.

Harrison died in November last year following a long battle against cancer. He was 58.
