In June 2016, the Y4-6 and Secondary Choirs at BSB learnt Lighting Up the Flame, an original song composed for the Voices Around the World project. “Voices Around the World is a free project with a mission to help young people everywhere work together musically to Sing Out! Speak Out! And Change the World!” (www.voicesaround.com)
We turned the music room into a "recording studio" and recorded their voices in small groups. We submitted these recordings along with videos of them performing the song. Our students were very proud to participate in this project and sang with such enthusiasm and joy. The final video has just been released, and, while we can hear their voices throughout, we are also thrilled to see that BSB students appear three times in the video! (it will say Beijing, China on the screen) It is wonderful to hear students from around the world sending us such a beautiful message through song.
Voices Around the World supports a charity programme dedicated to improving the lives of the children in Njombe Tanzania. You can find more information on their website. Please click here to pay for the download of the full video and help the cause.
