Bishopsgate have been working alongside Two Bald Blokes, a company who provide many things and for Bishopsgate leadership and management training. Recently we were offered the opportunity to attend an event called “Song in a Day”. We were given a meeting time and date and advised nothing more than “Song in a Day” no details of what to expect. Upon arrival we met about 40 other individuals from other companies and industries and parted as friends with a story to share.
The group, none of whom had real music industry backgrounds, and of which I was proudly a part conceptualised, wrote, performed and recorded our own piece of original music ready for release. A CHRISTMAS song in a day! We had only the help of a marketing specialist, singing coach, song writer and music mixer and had 450 minutes to complete the task!
We all stepped up, raised our game and faced a dauntingly difficult challenge that definitely took the majority of us outside our comfort zones and we created our own song ready for release before Christmas.
Now it is time to promote the record that was released on 1 November 2017 on iTunes and other media platforms. The song, Christmas Isn’t Christmas by 4 Five Zero is ready to buy at around a pound with all proceeds going to Amber, a charity that exists to help homeless, unemployed young people move on to positive, independent futures.
Please download our song today and help us reach of target of £1,000 for Amber.
Thanks to everyone for reading and remember Christmas Isn’t Christmas without peace, humanity and respect for others, so happy Christmas and New Year to all our customers, hope you enjoy downloading and listening to our song to help a worthy cause.
Two Bald Blokes is a Learning and Development company that engages people in Unforgettable Learning Experiences. “Song In A Day” is just one of these experiences. People come together, with little or no experience, to write, record and release an original piece of music in a day. www.twobaldblokes.com
Amber – transforming young lives
Amber is a charity that exists to help homeless, unemployed young people move on to positive, independent futures. Young people become homeless for many reasons – family breakdown, financial problems, drug and alcohol abuse, leaving care, mental health, prison release or sometimes they just make bad decisions. Once homeless, it can be very difficult to find work, secure accommodation and get back on your feet.
