Owner of G-A-Y Jeremy Joseph has said the nightclub will donate £1,000 to the Elton John AIDS foundation if ‘It’s Raining Men’ reaches the top 20 of the singles chart this week.

The Official Charts Company has released its midweek charts update, which shows the song is currently at number 21, just 40 sales away from reaching the number 20 spot.

Over 14,000 people have so far liked a Facebook campaign, which aims to get the Weather Girls’ version of the song to the top of the charts.

The song is likely to climb further, and may reach a higher spot.

It is available to download from iTunes here, and from Amazon, here.

The official top 40 singles chart is released on Sunday.

UKIP Councillor David Silvester recently claimed that the floods to have hit the UK in December and January were caused by same-sex marriage, and that homosexuality can be cured by Christian prayer.

Mr Silvester also claimed in an interview defending his views that more children have been “murdered” as a result of abortion laws than the number of Jews killed in by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

The official music video for the song is available to view below:
