Grenfell Tower 1st Anniversary Charity song by Carl Leroy
On the 14th of June 2017 the nation woke up to the devastating news of the Grenfell Tower blaze.
To mark this day one year on, singer/songwriter Carl Leroy and affected resident Liliana Martins have created a charity song and music video titled Grenfell (We won’t fall)
The song expresses where we as a community and nation currently stand, facing the oncoming first anniversary on the 14th of June 2018. It emphasizes the hope and solidarity that has always been present in the heart of the community. By doing so it commemorates the 72 souls that perished and strives to raise awareness of the ongoing issues that are still relevant today.
Liliana and Carl have teamed up with Paul Rumbol of UK based Brazilian band Viramundo to produce this original piece.
The song is a pop soul ballad led by Carl’s silvery voice with an uplifting melody and chorus over mellow cello undertones.
The aim is to make this song reach as many people as possible through the means of radio, television, internet, CD sales and online downloads. With this song we expect people will remember not only of the tragedy but the hope that still inspires us to stand together, one year on in the face of adversity. We won’t fall!!
By playing, downloading or buying this you will be contributing towards supporting the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire and the wider community.
The proceeds from this song will go primarily to two charities working with the Grenfell community – the Harrow Club (www.harrowclubw10.org) and Latymer Community Church (lwww.latymer.org.uk) two charities that were key centres for coordinating volunteers and offering support to those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June 2017.
The primary aim of the Harrow Club W10 is to provide local young people with accessible and high quality opportunities, enabling them to maximise their life chances and to enhance their personal development hence helping to shape their future to come. Latymer Community Church’s Eden team (Eden Ladbroke Grove) works with local young people encouraging them to make positive life choices. In addition to this we provide a home for other local organisations to run groups and activities that benefit community members of all ages.
