The singers – One Heart Refugee Choir & Friends were accompanied by talented musicians including Mike Lindup from Level 42, and Kari Bannerman from Osibisa and Ibibio Sound Machine, Anselmo Netto and Pk Ambrose, have generously donated their time and skills. The professional musicians worked alongside a choir of original voices that evoke the gospel talent of Aretha Franklin, the joy of Miriam Makeba and the heart-piercing emotion of Billie Holiday. All involved have poured their heart and soul into this song, and remind us that wherever we are from and whatever our circumstances we are all connected. The song has been recorded at a time when we are facing the worst global refugee crisis since World War Two. Less than 1% of the world’s 22.5 million refugees make it to the UK to claim asylum. But those who do often encounter hostility, which compounds the trauma they experienced when they were persecuted in their home countries.
