The Story Behind Recording We Are The Voice

Freya attended Stagecoach, Hinchley Wood.
Lauren was another of our Stagecoach, Hinchley Wood singers
Siolfor-Rose and Ellie were both Year 5's and sang beautiful solo parts.
On Sunday, March 3rd,We Are the Voice brought together children from several local Surrey schools at Hook Road Studios, Kington. Originally written for the World Summit on Sustainable Development (The Earth Summit) in Johannesburg 2002, the song, We Are The Voice, was performed at the opening of the Civil Societies ceremony.
Many people have donated their time, skills and expertise for making this project a reality.
