Shining Brightly, Bring Hope and Help
Where would we be without the healing power and music? Just as importantly, where would we be without the Beatles? These two stellar and star-packed fundraising singles perfectly illustrate how Lennon and McCartney’s timeless songs can still bring light to these dark times. Watch, listen, donate.
Soundcheck Live – ‘Let It Be’
The brainchild of Soundtrack Live founder Steve Ferlazzo, this knocks the ball way out of the park and contains superb performances by a stunning array of talent.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qrkc640GsPI&w=560&h=315]
A soulful and emotional version of one of the Fab Four’s absolute cream of the crop goes to show, even in lockdown, something beautiful can be created. Featuring the vocal talents of, amongst others, Avril Lavigne, Gary Cherone and John Bisha, there is also some scorching fretwork by Orianthi, Phil X and a particularly blistering Nuno Bettencourt, all adding up to a powerful brew that never puts ego in front of the cause.
The results are absolutely breathtaking and with so many superb musicians involved this is going to be something that lasts long after the lockdown has finished.
