The Choir with No Name Liverpool will be joined by guest choirs to perform a rousing set for members of the public before debuting a live version their new single.
Kobalt and the Choir with No Name (CWNN) are releasing a very special version of The Greatest Showman’s global hit ‘This Is Me’, to coincide with World Homeless Day on 10 October 2019.
The Choir with No Name Liverpool, which was founded in 2014 to support homeless and marginalised people in the city, is one of four Choir with No Name choirs across the UK featured on the single.
Choir with No Name Liverpool is part of a wider UK charity of the same name, which currently runs choirs in four cities in England, with over 170 members from the homeless community singing with them every week. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England and Ocorian Trustees, and their partnership with global music services company, Kobalt, they were able to offer their choir members the experience of a lifetime by taking them into professional studios to record a single. The Liverpool choir were lucky enough to record in the iconic Motor Museum studio on Lark Lane. The resulting uplifting version of ‘This is Me’, will be released on October 10th 2019 with an accompanying video shot at the studio sessions in Liverpool, London and Birmingham (Director: Alpha Barrie, Producer: Dave Graham, Crossfire Productions).
To further raise awareness, and highlight the fact that we are all a lot more than just our housing status, the charity are launching a #ThisIsMeinThree campaign on social media, asking the public to define themselves in three words, as well as highlighting three words chosen by their choir members and accompanying stories.
