Presswire

[PRESSWIRE] London, United Kingdom - 15.08.2014 -- Dozens of performers across the UK have took to the streets to help the Post Office celebrate its Sunday openings by performing the Commodores' smash hit "Easy (like Sunday Morning)".

The Post Office has selected the very best performances to celebrate their talent in a video montage.

Rising singer songwriter, 30-year-old singer/songwriter Chiari and band who have worked with the likes of Plan B, Amy Winehouse and Rudimental, loved performing the song. Chiari said: "Sundays are a real chameleon day as you can choose to be pro-active and get lots of things done or use it as a real rest day. Sunday's for me are a day that I get a bit of time to myself.

"It was fun singing the old classic "Easy (like Sunday Morning)". The band and I love Lionel Ritchie; you have to respect a man who has sustained a career for over 40 years."

Winner of Jazz Album of the Year, Das Contras member Graeme Watson from Edinburgh said: "What's not to love about Sundays? They make me think of lie-ins and long walks. This has been a great way to spend a Sunday. It's a real classic and I have enjoyed getting involved!"

Footage of dozens of performances was shared with the Post Office and the very best have been worked into into a video montage which is live here: http://goo.gl/PvaXaN. The performer's Twitter handles are included in the film so that you can show your support for the one you think best expresses what it's like to be Easy Like Sunday Morning #LoveSundays.

Post Office spokesperson Peter Markey said: "People across the UK treasure their Sundays and we're delighted that they have enjoyed how we've celebrated that. The street performers have been fantastic and such a huge range of acts took part, including some up-and-coming stars.

"We really wanted to celebrate this exciting time at the Post Office with as many people as possible, telling everyone that popping into a branch on a Sunday is in fact Easy. We're changing the way we do business and becoming more convenient to help everyone in the UK love Sundays too."

The Post Office's newly extended opening hours make getting the important things in life done even easier. Over 1,600 branches are now open on a Sunday, and within a 15-minute drive of most people in the UK. To find a branch open on Sunday near you, visit postoffice.co.uk/branch-finder
