In an economic climate with major cutbacks, charities are feeling the impact by losing chunks of their budgets. We would like to help some of these important charities to get the recognition and help that they deserve.
By joining the Sing It Forward movement you can help raise more awareness for them. Sing It Forward combines charity fundraising with YOUR development.
As an aspiring artist you will be given a brief; to choose a valuable local Charity that is close to your heart. You will work alongside industry-standard professionals to write, record, practice and perform an original song to spread awareness and raise funds for your chosen Charity.
This process will help YOU to raise your self-esteem by learning the art of giving and sharing and the skills learnt through charity fundraising –
And give you a real taste of working within the music, media and entertainment professions.
The process will be filmed and documented on social media and you will work with the filmmaker to produce a music video that will be given to the Charity for their promotional use.
As part of helping to raise awareness of your chosen charity you will:
● Research the charity
