Unbreakable – live!
The power and passion of these young people takes my breath away.
To describe how magical this performance was – live on July 5th – is simply impossible.
This song is called Unbreakable and it’s about that deep part inside us that allows us to thrive no matter what life throws at us.
Let’s rewind to 6 months earlier where these 70 children from 5 different schools met for the first time.
In partnership with Music Federation – we wanted to create a choir that brought together talented singers from across Leeds to form a single, unified collection of voices.
From those nervous first steps and first hellos they became the most awesome team and we saw seismic shifts in confidence and self-belief along the way.
Young people connecting with themselves – both as individuals and each other, elevating their souls and voices in the way that only music knows how in the process was truly epic.
The lead soloist here is a very special individual indeed.
We watched her gradually find her power, and the self-confidence to unleash her voice with freedom.
It was one of those experiences where the whole Class Dynamix journey was captured in a single moment.
This quiet, softly spoken individual coming alive, and through her fears and self-doubts, she rose up – inspiring the whole choir to do the same.
What a story – and hers is one of many that I’ve had the privilege to be a part of, and create these songs and opportunities where young people can soar.
