We’re still in a state of shock and bewilderment?! What felt like a dream back in February ACTUALLY happened – watching it again last night on ITV brought back the memories of what was simply the craziest day of our lives. Having Mr Simon Cowell himself stroll into school and surprise us with an audition was the most bonkers moment you could imagine. There are no words to describe the emotions and shock we felt.
We were so grateful for the opportunity to perform in Manchester and to show the world the Class Dynamix vibe. The adrenalin was incredible, the atmosphere was electric and the feedback has been so encouraging. Thank you thank you THANK YOU! Danny
Here’s the surprise once again
This feels like the most surreal news we’ve ever shared but tonight, Class Dynamix will be lighting up the stage on Britain’s Got Talent! 32 incredible kids from our Gold Partnership School – Music Federation, Leeds – showed the most amazing courage to stand-up and deliver the most exciting performance we have ever seen.
The kids were given a “surprise audition” in person by none other than Simon Cowell himself. We were whisked off by coach to Manchester there and then, and we experienced one of the most exhilarating moments of our lives.
Tonight, millions of people will witness the work we have been pioneering in schools for many years. Young people, growing their characters, finding their courage and releasing their inner magic without fear into the world! We are so excited.
Let’s do this! Danny
Hey everybody! We just wanted to reach out and send everyone our best vibes and wishes – especially all you teachers and kids out there. You are truly unique. You are so powerful and full of amazing potential. Keep growing yourself through this whole global situation, and shining your light wherever you are! Danny
To all the schools, kids and staff we know and love – and to EVERYONE reading this. Stay strong during this time of uncertainty. You are all uniquely powerful and together we will navigate through these current challenges. Look after yourself, stay aware, be kind and helpful to others. This will all pass. I hope we can all look back once this is all over and see it as a time where our gratitude for life deepened and our compassion for each other expanded. We are ALL connected. Act with wisdom and love to support the most vulnerable around us. Danny
This project was incredible. St Peter’s CE JI & EY school in Birstall is such a gem of a school. They nurture their kids in a special way and we feel so privileged to have been able to work with them in creating their own school song and music video. It’s a real colour fest that truly captures the spirit of their unique community. We are so proud of this piece of work and of all the children and staff involved. We can’t wait to work with them again.
We wrote this song way back at the beginning of our journey in 2014. We knew instantly that this song had a special power to it. We also knew that we would release it when the time was right. Well the time is now. Featuring a wonderful member of our group this year called Sophie, this song is all about rising up when haters hate and life gets tough. It celebrates courage, resilience and shining your unique light into the world with power and abandon. We all have a unique magic inside us that the world needs and will leave it a better place. Enjoy
This project was as much fun as it looks! We had the BEST time with these awesome kids at this very special school in Bradford. We really wanted to help them create a song that captured that unique energy and spirit – built around their motto of “Believe and Succeed” and running the race of life with courage and endurance. With a “School of Rock” feel – we totally love the finished piece. Enjoy!
We are so excited to share this incredible piece of work that the children at Windmill C of E created with us. Their own school anthem called The Windmill Way truly captures their special spirit, their kind heart as a community and their total awesomeness as a school. We are very proud of you all and well done on an amazing project. Thank you for having us!
Here is the official music video for Light Up For Leeds. Made in partnership with Child Friendly Leeds and sponsored by Shine and Crisp Thinking – the final film features footage shot at our incredible showcase at the First Direct Arena back in July at the Teach First Conference.
