In 2009 thousands of children from the Norris Green and Croxteth areas of Liverpool were brought together in song by the, ‘Voice in the city’ project as part of an anti-gun, knife & gang crime campaign. The campaign was aimed at challenging the youth of both communities to unify, speak out and take a stand in the aftermath of the tragic shooting of Rhys Jones.

Youth choirs from both communities were formed, recording and releasing a cover version of the John Farnham song: “You’re the Voice” which was performed live to over 120,000 people at venues including: Anfield – Goodison Park – Echo Arena – TUC National Conference & The House of Commons, subsequently raising £5,000 for Rhys Jones Memorial Fund, Anthony Walker Foundation, Families Fighting For Justice whilst also raising monies towards the building of an orphanage in Ghana and a Well in Kenya.
