My Voice Lifts My Soul - Mon 20 Apr 2020

We have received information about this project and thought you may like to have a look. We know nothing about it other than the email we received, so cannot endorse it.

"My Voice Lifts My Soul is a virtual choir project that is designed to bring voices of the world together for World Voice Day, launching on 16th April 2020, running until May 15th.

We are planning to launch with a small number of headline or flagship choirs to inspire other choirs to get involved. We would love you to be involved because your genuine passion for lifting people up and connecting them through music shines through your work and your choir will be able to truly inspire others around you and the world. From 16th April (launch date) we will be offering free online resources (including chord, charts, lyrics and a PDF explaining the technical process) for a month for other choirs and choir leaders to use, widening participation and increasing connection virtually.

This project is a collaboration between Juliet Russell (vocal coach on The Voice UK, Michael McIntyreís Big Show, choir director of Assemble) and Naveen Arles (founder of London International Gospel Choir and MD Brunch). We're working with a song called My Voice Lifts My Soul - about connecting to music, to other people and setting your soul free; perfect for this time where many of us are geographically confined, but still want to connect and sing together.

1. Flagship choir - a small number of choirs who are involved in the launch. These will be international and everyone can see / hear their work on the day as inspiration. Promotion on web page, FB page and YouTube

2. Featured choir - a group who does a lovely version and we promote it across SM

3. Participation Choir- a group who takes advantage of the free resources and creates their own version. Some of these may become featured choirs, but itís more about them being coming together as a choir and being part of a unified project with # etc.

Iím very happy to talk any of this through and would love to hear your thoughts.

We have choirs from India, Malaysia, Australia, the US, France, Belgium and Norway already signed up so itís very exciting.
