I am so proud of this collection. It was commissioned jointly by Sing Up and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and was first performed by two choirs of more than 1,000 singers each. The collection was finalist in the UK's Music Education Awards (Publication of the Year) and the song 'Power in Me' has been performed by more than 300,000 children in the UK, the US, Australia and beyond.
For the first time my songs are available as individual digital downloads. Bundle includes: vocal and accompaniment tracks, wordsheet, powerpoint, piano/vocal scores, vocal lines and lesson starters!
