How did the project start?
Next we had to find a great song and the pop legend Howard Jones kindly offered to let us use his amazing song 'Building Our Own future'. With the great support from our partner organisations, we got schools around the World involved, giving them free access to MP3 downloads of all the choir resources needed. Around 6 months later the first Voices Around The World global recording was released and suddenly 2000+ youngsters who had participated became 'mini popstars!.
After the initial success in releasing 'Building Our Own Future' we decided to continue and Howard again came forward with another amazing song - 'Unshakeable.' This was released in 2013, breaking records with nearly 4000 voices from 42 countries joining in the release!
