We called on street poets, MCs, lyricists, vocal divas and musical minds around the country to submit their messages of peace! And…
Our collaborative peace anthem is now ready to be shared with the world – messages of peace that have come right from the heart of the UK! Inspired by New Day Foundation’s track Going for Gold, SBTV’s resident producer Jake has mixed up YOUR vocals, rhymes and melodies into a powerful piece that will help share a message of peace to everyone.
Listen, comment, share, download – this track is for YOU.
On the final peace anthem were not only tracks that were submitted via our competition, but also from people recorded as the Peace Mix Mic Relay travelled around the country – a true representation of the thoughts of the UK. Below is a list of all the contributors to the final track:
- Prince Phillip
- Five Peace Mix Mic Relay contributors (2 vocalists & 3 guitarists)
We also want to send a huge shout out to EVERYONE who took the time to lay down your thoughts and share them we received for our online competition – thank you! It was truly inspiring hearing so many people’s different interpretations of peace. If you want to find out how it all happened keep reading, but make sure you’ve downloaded and listened to our final track first!
How did it all happen? Well…
First we asked people to think about what ‘peace’ actually meant to them, and how they would communicate this through music or lyrics.
They listened to our backing track created by SBTV and thought about how they’d contribute: vocals, raps, spoken word, percussion, instrumental or beats.
Then we broke it down into sections which people could download and add to. We think they’re pretty catchy by themselves, check them out below!
And finally, the tunes, beats and rhymes were uploaded to Soundcloud where we reviewed and picked out the best ones to be included on our track! You can check out the online competition winners entries here.
