“I would like to – together with Supraphon – give a small gift at this difficult time not only to the disappointed potential viewers of the film KAREL, but to all the fans of my late husband. As the film’s premiere and distribution have to be postponed indefinitely due to new epidemiological measures, I decided to please my husband’s fans in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and publish a new video with the title song for KAREL – ‘Go for happiness’. It is all the more valuable for me that it is Charles’ last recording from June 2019, when he sang it with the knowledge that it is a song for an emerging film, “says Ivana Gottová.

I am grateful that we can lift the spirits of my husband’s fans at least a little at such an uncertain time with the video for the opening song ‘Go for happiness’. I firmly believe that it will be fine again soon, so accept this gift from us and Karel as a hope for better times, “adds Ivana Gottová, producer of the film KAREL.
