We Are One - A Song To Unite The World!


Hello there ,
I have been devastated by the shocking xenophobia in this country and in fact the world. I decided, that being a song-writer, I can try to  use music to change the hearts of people and unite us in our diversity.

I wrote the song called WE ARE ONE and collected my family in the lounge and filmed it the other day. We want to  send it around the country to as many choirs and families who would be interested in making their own version and also posting it on You tube. I have always believed that what children are taught as youngsters they grow up to express. So here goes. Would love it if you would like to follow us on our journey and quest to unite our country  so that we can enjoy and respect our differences.

Blessings and sunshine.
