Within weeks of the original viral Facebook post on 24/06/2016, writing and arranging Human Kind and gathering together an extraordinary international community, we put on a monumental concert at the Union Chapel London on 2nd August 2016,
World-leading solo artists appeared from across the musical spectrum as well as over two hundred choral singers in the round. After eight solo sets, the evening concluded with the recording of Human Kind, the foundation of the final video single.
The concert featured
CASSIDY JANSON (Beautiful: the Carole King Musical), MARK LETTIERI (Snarky Puppy),
DAME SARAH CONNOLLY, GEORGE MONBIOT & EWAN MCLENNAN,
THOMAS GOULD, ANDREW McCORMACK & BERNHARD SCHIMPELSBERGER,
