The wave of energy that progressively built as the launch night edged closer, came to an immense crescendo on an unforgettable night packed with emotion and that word again, ‘hope’.
The young people’s journey into adult life was just beginning and Paolo Hewitt was about to make sure they knew that in an emotional and beautifully thought provoking reading from his new book “BUT WE ALL SHINE ON – THE REMARKABLE ORPHANS OF BURBANK CHILDREN’S HOME.”
There were some funny moments but emotionally charged and as it turned out the event had it all, laughter and tears, sadness but joy and hope.
It was soon time to show the film which was recieved with rapturous applause. Give the film a watch and if you like it share it on #music4care…

Some of the young people read speeches out, very powerful words on the aspirations they had for the film to reach out and help people and how the process had lifted their spirits!
