Exciting news! Sir Paul McCartney has today given his backing to STAND TOGETHER, the charity choir album our DSMF young people’s choir-from-scratch is part of! ‘Choirs With Purpose’ have been given the blessing of the great man himself to re-record his classic song ‘We All Stand Together’ as the album’s Christmas single.
STAND TOGETHER by Choirs With Purpose is an album of uplifting cover songs by singing groups who sing for an important reason – to share their personal messages of hope after loss, and the power and spirit of community. We’re very privileged to be joining the Missing People Choir, the Parrs Wood High School Choir who sang with Ariana Grande at One Love Manchester, the newly formed UK Hospices Choir, the Games Maker Choir who opened the IAAF World Athletics Championships 2017 on Friday, and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir who hit the number one spot at Christmas 2015.
The album will be released on December 15th 2017 but is available for pre-order now via this link. You can also be part of a ‘Pop Up Purpose’Choir’, recording in London on 23rd September, and join with all the choirs singing Stand Together on the album, by pledging £50 towards this exciting project, also on this link. All profits from sales of the album will be divided equally between the ten choirs involved, or their nominated charities
James Hawkins, producer of STAND TOGETHER said, “We all stand together’ is the perfect song to bring together all the different choirs featuring on the album. The message ‘one thing is certain we’ll never give in’ resonates with every group, and we are so excited to be bringing this classic song to a whole new generation.”
