    a1 were a relatively successful British boy band, whose first single, "Be The First To Believe", was released in 1999. Its members were Mark Read, Paul Marazzi, Ben Adams and Christian Ingebrigtsen (from Norway). They have also won a Brit Award for 'British breakthrough act' in 2001.


    The groups publicity focused on the fact that a1 wrote many of their own songs, and that three of the four play musical instruments. Read plays the piano and drum, Adams plays the piano and Ingebrigtsen plays the piano and guitar. After an initial period during which they achieved moderate success in the UK singles chart, in autumn 2000 two of their singles went to number one in the chart within nine weeks: "Take On Me" and "Same Old Brand New You". The former was a cover of A-ha's 1985 single, which itself only reached a number two position in the UK charts in 1986. In 2001 they toured Asia, where they were well-received. The music video for their single "No More" was filmed in Singapore. And their hit song "Same Old Brand New You" showed the band, for the first time, doing some choreagraphed dancing, showing A1 in a new light as dancing, as well as their unique style of composing and creating their own music.


    During the Indonesian leg of their tour, whilst they performed in a shopping mall called Taman Anggrek Mall, four teenage girls were killed in a stampede. The band members were upset by the incident, and all four considered leaving the band.

    Their third album, Make It Good, featured a sound closer to traditional rock music, but was to be their last studio project.

    On October 8 2002 Paul Marazzi left the band citing personal reasons, and the group subsequently split.

    They released a Best Of album in January 2004 which featured previously unreleased concert recordings, their singles, and two unreleased studio recordings.

    Ben Adams released the solo single, "Sorry", which reached #18 in the UK Singles Chart in April 2005.

    Christian has since made it big back in his home country of Norway and Mark is still writing but for many different artists.

    You can find both Ben and Mark on MySpace

    I honestly think hospitals are the best idea. Virtually all baby deaths end up at a hospital, but not all end up at funeral homes. There's a lot of options regarding how to handle a child who's already died, but a death certificate has to be written up, and death can only be officially proclaimed by a doctor. Also, cause of death has to be taken into consideration. Hospitals are almost exclusively the end result for deaths at any age. Hospitals also virtually always have social workers and volunteers. Probably best person to talk to in person is the front desk person for the regular hospital entrance, Not the ER. Also, there's likely a general purpose line for the hospital if you want to call, ask for "Social services." The vast majority of the time, the hospital attempts to help the family deal with death, particularly in case of the death of a young child. If you offer your gowns to the social services department of the hospital, you can be virtually guaranteed they'll be given away for free (hospitals also do a LOT of free services, such as volunteers, free medication provided from patient assistance programs, and various services from within the social services department). You may want to just give the gowns to the hospital, or you may want to give your number. If just the number, clarify you're giving the gowns away completely for free, with no strings attached, and the only reason you're not giving them the gowns is you'd like the parents to have the chance to customize the child's clothing (like request a specific color or somesuch). Reason for that is hospitals are usually very suspicious of people trying to take advantage of a distraught family. Sadly, that sort of thing is fairly common. I worked in a patient assistance program, as a customer service rep, so I've spent Many hours speaking with the social workers for the hospitals and larger doctor's offices. Sometimes they share stories, and some people have pulled nasty things. Hospitals usually are good about referring people to charity things, but often don't mention things that cost money. If they get even the faintest idea that you'll charge for the gowns in some fashion, there's a good chance they'll ignore you if you just give your number. That is my full, complete, unabridged suggestion :P
