The Silent Choir releases the first ever silent Christmas song
By Mark Perkins on Wednesday, December 18, 2019
Some of the most famous voices and musicians in the UK have collaborated on a Christmas song with a difference: the first silent Christmas track.
Vocal artists including; Royal Blood, The Amazons, ELIZA, HRVY, KT Tunstall, Martin Kemp, Leah Weller, Freddie Long and Joanna Forest have donated their silence for the track so that voices of children living in challenging circumstances can be heard.
While other festive soundtracks share the joy of family, love and presents, the silent track highlights the stark reality for thousands of children, suffering in silence, who will be experiencing abuse and neglect this Christmas. The track can be streamed on Spotify and listeners will be able to donate through The Children’s Society’s official website.
The soundtrack follows the appearance of The Children’s Society, Silent Choir performance in London’s Piccadilly, outside Fortnum & Mason, on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Only when they received a monetary donation, did the choir start to sing.
