The #music4care project launched on April 1st 2014 to rapturous applause and tear filled eyes, as the gravity and power of the message in the video hit home to the audience. Since then the film has been praised and supported online by High profile Care Leavers such as Lemn Sissay with this tweet and Paolo Hewitt who supported the launch with an inspirational speech. In addition Sir Ken Robinson famous for the most viewed Ted Talk ever, also Tweeted about the film! The film was even championed by the NSPCC in this tweet!
7,908 views later the film has been seen far and wide and in countless countries around the world. The film will has been accepted into its first film festival which we will announce soon and it is to be presented at the National Care Leavers Conference in October. Amazing!!!
All that said, what impact did the project really have on those who took part? In this new video the young people behind the song and film talk about their experience of being involved!
