Cyclone Idai single organised by One Voice set for release

BRITAIN'S Christian music and gospel community are recording a charitable single in aid of the African countries that were hit by Cyclone Idai. That cyclone is estimated to have affected 2.6 million people, having made landfall in Mozambique and continuing on to cause destruction across Malawi and Zimbabwe. The groundbreaking charitable project, One Voice, is being spearheaded by UK music visionaries Lawrence Johnson (London Community Gospel Choir, Nu-Colours, Sounds Of New Wine) and Les Moir (A&R manager, record producer and bass player). Raising vital funds for the international relief and development agency Tearfund for their emergency response to Cyclone Idai project, One Voice has garnered the support of a wide variety of Christian singers, bands, choirs, rappers and African gospel artists, all of whom gathered on 4th May to record the single at a Bedfordshire recording studio. The single, "Strength To Go On", is set to be released in June 2019 and will be available for download on all major platforms. CR
