Summer Recording Project! We are looking for up to 16 brilliant young singers aged from 9 to 18 years from across London to come together to form a choir to record a new anti-racism song. Ray of Sunlight was written by hit songwriter Michael Garvin (23 #1 hits) and award-winning choral director Hannah Brine, shortly after the death of George Floyd last year. Michael and Hannah felt very sad by events unfolding and hope this song of togetherness and standing up for justice helps spread a positive message.
The recording of the song together with a video will be released on World Peace Day, 21st September, in aid of Stop Hate UK.
Rehearsals will take place during the day time on Saturday August 28th and the studio recording session for the song will be day time of Saturday 4th September.
There is no cost to take part in the project, but young singers need to be confident and have good solo voices. Please fill in the application form below, and send a video of yourself singing a section of a song that you love – ideally an a cappella (unaccompanied) verse and a chorus of a contemporary/pop song, and tell us a little bit about yourself – who you are, and why you love singing. Send the video via www.wetransfer.com to email@example.com, or upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox or Google Drive link and send us the link. Please make sure to have a parent or guardian’s consent to participate. The deadline to submit is Sunday August 22nd and singers will be notified on August 23rd.
