Class Dynamix were invited to write an inspiring and aspirational song for the young people of Leeds that contributed to the “Inclusive Growth Strategy” of the City Council.

Working in partnership with Child Friendly Leeds, Class Dynamix pioneered a collaborative 5 school project that culminated in an exciting live premiere at the world renowned Leeds College of Music. 200 children had a fantastic experience making new friends from other schools, growing their personal confidence to express themselves through this dynamic musical opportunity.

The song “Light up for Leeds” is one that empowers young people with the message that in order to grow our city (and it’s economy) first and foremost we must grow ourselves. Our character, vision, determination and self-esteem.

The official music video for the song was premiered at the Leeds City Council Leadership Conference. It featured footage taken from our First Direct Arena showcase for Teach First.


Here are some young people talking about the project.

This project was sponsored by Child Friendly Leeds, Shine and Crisp Thinking.

It was additionally supported by Leeds College of Music.
