Southend’s Virtual Song raising funds for local charities
The Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs have joined up with past members and local musicians to produce a virtual recording of the classic song “How Can I keep from Singing?” After 18 months of not being able to sing together this seemed the perfect song to perform to raise funds for local charities. Over 100 individual recordings were put together into a virtual song, from singers and musicians aged 7 to 70, performing the arrangement by local musician Mike Stephens. Musicians from both local groups, professional orchestras and bands joined the recording, with singers participating from as far away as Australia and Holland. The recording aims to raise funds for 2 local charities – HARP and St Vincent’s Centre, Southend, both of which support vulnerable families in our community.
