Thank you for visiting our website everybody! Obviously we can't go ahead with Leicester Sing for Water 2020 - but the GREAT NEWS is that we are all set for the event to take place in 2021!!
We plan to have the same two communal songs: a South African song ‘Hlonolofatsa’, and a very uplifting song ‘The River’ by the Canadian singer-songwriter Coco Love Alcorn.
Anyone who enjoys singing is welcome to join the scratch choir raising money for WaterAid. If you are in a choir get your choir to join the project and learn the two communal songs together. If you register, you can download the scores and rehearsal mp3s on this website. Then you can listen, choose the part that best suits your voice, and get practising so that you’re word perfect on the day.
Once you are familiar with the songs, you are invited to join Leicester Amika Choir for an open session at the start of their usual Saturday afternoon rehearsal at Claremont Methodist Church Belgrave LE4 7QA. The final ‘polishing’ rehearsal will be at De Montfort University on the morning of the concert.
In addition to the massed voices, choirs are invited to sing one or two crowd-pleasing songs from their own repertoire. Do take this opportunity to showcase your choir
Raising Money for Wateraid
It’s hoped that each singer will raise a donation for WaterAid. A goal of £30 per singer would be wonderful, but whatever you manage to raise will be appreciated. Collect through sponsorship or other form of fundraising. Some choirs make a communal effort and bake, sell bric-a-brac and plants or hold raffles.
Money is raised through sponsorship of the singers as well as a collection from the audience on the day. See the Money Matters page for further details.
There are still far too many children dying of waterborne diseases – and far too many people living without access to clean water, sanitation, or health education. Let's get going, raising money, practising songs and making it a great event in 2021 to change the lives of people in Malawi through the WaterAid projects there!
Many thanks for all your vital help,
