“How To Fly” : Epic Premiere Wows Audience

IMG_2948

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.

Dave Young – Digital Sun Media

The hard work, passion, team work and great vibe from this project is amazing. In 24 years of working with Young people, this project will stay in my memory for years to come…Quite frankly it has left me humbled! The whole team is working like a well oiled cog, Inspired Youth are not called that for no reason, Springboard workers, your energy, passion and care is a credit to you all. Rack Mount records guys, again you are showing your excellent production credentials…. Izzy, Joe Fod, Digital Sun Media are proud to have you working with us….. And finally to all the young folk involved, without you guys we would not have such a powerful, honest, heartfelt and most of all bloody well written track…. I salute you…….Now lets all get back to the job in hand, Wensley Dale anyone?

Session 7 – Final Studio Day

last day studioThis was our last day in the studio. By now we were all really feeling like a team, and the mutual passion for the track we were making meant things quickly started to come together. The last day in the studio proved a very  inspiring and enjoyable experience. What a journey so far!Mixer

The young people were really getting confident now and taking their opportunities, on the desk, in the live room and in the recording booth.IMG_9343

The words of the track resounded through the studio, powerful and provocative – these words were inspired by real experiences of care and could really move audiences when they hear the track.Lyrics

In the second part of the session a reporter came from the The Press to find out what the project was all about. She took photos and asked the team questions about what it was like and what they were getting from the project. The young people spoke passionately and were very articulate with their views.
