Naomi House & Jacksplace, hospices for children and young adults with life limiting or life threatening conditions have launched the ‘Forevermore Song’ fundraising project. The charity, based in Winchester, teamed up with long-term supporter and local musician Ben Dlugokecki, and 30 local musicians to create the charity single music video, called ‘Forevermore‘. The video shoot took place at the Railway Inn in Winchester and was filmed and edited by Laurent Metrich from Shortcuts Video.
The charity are inviting local schools, music groups and community groups to create their very own version of ‘Forevermore’ and raise money with the challenge. The charity are asking that people learn the song and then create, record and submit their very own version in a music video. There is also the opportunity to raise money for Naomi House & Jacksplace, so the charity are suggesting schools and groups put on performances of their version and charge people to watch.
Each video will be entered into a competition, which will be judged by an expert music panel. The winning group will receive a one off pressed vinyl of the song with the artwork sleeve designed by the children at Naomi House & Jacksplace, as well as the chance to perform for Naomi House & Jacksplace in 2020. The winning group and the group who raise the most money will also win a brand new Audient iD4 USB Audio Interface. The final Audient iD4 winner will be chosen at random from all entries. The closing date to enter is 10th July at 5pm.
Lucy Gray, Regional Fundraiser for Naomi House & Jacksplace said:
Forevermore’ has been written as a track that can be individually interpreted. All lyrics, melodies, scores, harmonies and anything else we think you might need to create your video are provided on our website, alongside a Naomi House & Jacksplace version of ‘Forevermore’ here.
We want you and your group to put your creative hats, socks and shoes on and come up with a truly unique version of ‘Forevermore’, the more bizarre, the better! There are no limits to this video – use whatever instruments you’d like and we would definitely recommend adding in some dance moves to make sure your entry stands out to our ‘expert’ judging panel! You don’t need to be the best singer, dancer or musician, we just want you and your group to have a good time enjoying the power of music and the amazing positive effect it can have on every single person.
