According to Birmingham Mail, Black Sabbath's legend, guitarist Tony Iommi is featured in the video for a new Christmas charity song recorded by U.K. soccer legends Stiliyan Petrov and James Milner.

"Christmas Way By 19 & 7" (a reference to Petrov and Milner's shirt numbers) will raise funds for the NSPCC, Help For Heroes and blood cancer charity Bloodwise.

Petrov and Iommi have battled leukemia and lymphoma.

"Christmas Way By 19 & 7" was written by songwriter and producer Glenn James McDonald and features contributions from THE NEALES, finalists in "Britain's Got Talent"; Jonny Marenghi, who sang with Gary Barlow on the ITV show "Journey To Afghanistan"; and the recently crowned winner of "BBC Songs Of Praise Gospel Choir Of The Year."

Iommi's role is one of ambassador for the track.

Glenn, who has built studios for Iommi and JUDAS PRIEST's Glenn Tipton, said: "I played [the song] to Tony. Bear in mind I'm with the dark lord of heavy rock, and he said, 'That sounds like Christmas.'"

"Christmas Way by 19 & 7" was released on Friday, December 18 and is available now on iTunes.

In these days Black Sabbath with Tommy Clufetos are busy rehearsing in Los Angeles, getting ready for the upcoming tour. Long life Sabbath!
