2020 has been a very strange year so far, and as it continues, it will probably continue to challenge us further in how we all adapt to our surroundings and new way of life. With all of the theatres and music venues shut, it has been a tough few months for the entertainment industry. Not only for the large scale London / Broadway shows, but for all the self employed musicians, singers and bands, however big or small. We are all in this together!
So what we decided to do here at 'The Bel Canto Sopranos' is find our way to collaborate together. Not only to have a good ole fashioned sing song but also to record a track to say a huge "Thank you" to all of the amazing NHS, Health Care Workers and Key Workers that have been keeping the country afloat during a very dark time. They all deserve huge admiration and gratitude.
So, with that in mind, Angie, Gemma and Carrie invited some of our previous singing colleagues to join us for this special collaboration. Alongside the beautiful voices of Lauren Atkins and Chelsea Turnbull, we were also thrilled to have the Classical Crossover Singer Jay Dref from New York to join us.
Recording from six different locations has its challenges to say the least, but please enjoy our finished collaboration below of 'We are the World'
