Barack Obama: 100 days - Video journalism
Nearly there! As featured on Viewmagazine, Shirley Thompson a composer and conductor tipped to be a contributor for London's Olympic 2012.
Shirley has scored an original and oustandingly uplifting piece : Voice of Change, which will be played at the Purcell Room, South Bank Centre, Thursday 30th April 2009 at 7.45 pm.
It fuses, classical, gospel, jazz, drum and beat. Pure magic!
The gathering features the BBC Orchestra; Katherin Jenkins - Opera singer- who's opened a couple of big Rugby games; and Mark de Lisser from the BBC's Last Choir Standing.
I have been asked to make a video accompanying Voice of Change.
There's quite a drama behind how this whole thing is coming together, video n' all. This isn't the place to talk about it, but a Video journalism piece behind the scenes afterwards, might shed some light.
As a footnote, what an amazing thing, amazing thing...
