Divina de Campo asks you to ‘lip-sync for your life’ for charity

Adam Lowe

In such a difficult time of isolation, QueerArts want to bring people together through music and showcase the power of community. Supporting York LGBT Forum and the NHS, the charitable project offers a unique opportunity to star in a music video alongside TV’s Divina de Campo, Bright Lights and the Colours of the Rainbow community choir.

Colours of the Rainbow choir released a charity single back in November called ‘Through the Storm’ and the lyrics have never been more apt. QueerArts and Divina de Campo want to use the song as a means to showcase the resilience and strength of our community while reaching out to those who are feeling alone and isolated. In the process, they will produce a music video for the single – which could star you!

If you would like to take part, you can take a video of yourself singing or lip-syncing to ‘Through the Storm’ – while looking fabulous, of course! You’ll find the lyrics over at YouTube, in the description to the video.

You can then tag three friends to get in on the action. At the end, the videos will be put together by a filmmaker to make a beautiful music video. Proceeds from the single will go towards the NHS and the York LGBT Forum. Please email wayne.dawson@yorklgbtforum.org or visit the QueerArts Facebook page for more details if you would like to be involved.

This project will be working directly with members of the community who are feeling isolated, and any funds raised after the creation of the video will be split between the NHS and the wonderful York LGBT forum to ensure their projects continue during the Coronovirus pandemic – one of which is the Colours of the Rainbow community choir.

Divina has also recently been nominated for a National Diversity Award, so if you’d like to reward her hard work for the community, you can do so until 8 June 2020.
