Urban Hope Music Celebration
2 November 2011
Last Thursday Urban Hope had the opportunity to celebrate the young people who have been coming to our music session for the last 18 months to work on their vocal techniques, write songs, create beats and record music.
The confidence and talent shown by the young people who participated blew us away! Around 150 people came out to St Stephen’s Church (which looked stunning!) to watch young people perform tracks that they love, supported by performances from Shelley Nelson, and our vocal tutors.
But the young people performing weren’t the only stars of the show, with young people from all our sessions working alongside our amazing adult volunteers helping to host, compare and steward the evening, as well as baking cakes, decorating the Church and clearing everything away afterwards.
Throughout whole evening there was a real sense of family coming together to celebrate Urban Hope and the young people who make it what it is, and it was that, much more than the music, which made the evening such a huge success.
So I’d just like to say once again, a huge thank you to everyone who came, took part, or helped in anyway. We’re so grateful!
