Posted on the 2nd September 2013

We’re delighted to announce that the Street Child World Cup 2014 anthem ‘I am Somebody’ has launched. Help us reach 10,000 views! Listen here and share with your contacts

Street Child World Cup partners Hospital Records have produced the anthem with their artists London Elektricity, Diane Charlemagne and S.P.Y. The wonderful choir on the track are pupils from Brixton’s Corpus Christy School.

When Street Child World Cup supporter and drum & bass fan Laura Youngson approached her heroes at Hospital Records to record a track for the Street Child World Cup, founder Tony Colman (London Elektricity) was only too happy to oblige.

“I was so excited to be asked to work on the SCWC 2014 theme. I knew the track had to be summery and also I felt it had to have school children. I wrote the chorus walking home from Hospital Records on the south circular road. The amazing Corpus Christi school choir (from Brixton) were a pure delight, and Diane Charlemagne (from Tulse Hill) smashed the verses. Add to that the amazing S.P.Y co writing and producing, and we have ended up with a proper South East London tune to be proud of. I haven’t had so much fun in the studio in years.”

Joe Hewitt from the Street Child World Cup: “Hospital Records are taking the Street Child World Cup to a whole new audience. They took the time to listen to the voices of street children and produce this anthem for their rights. We can’t stop whistling it!”

Full release will be ahead of the tournament in 2014 but the anthem will be used by the teams participating to raise awareness and throughout schools across the world.
