If you’ve listen to C2C Youth Radio or WordNet in general for the past year or so, you’ve likely heard “Blessed” by UK Singer/Songwriter Sarah Téibo. This Christmas, the singer decided to help struggling families during the pandemic with the release of a Christmas Single, “Hear the Sound,” that you can hear in rotation on WordNet now! Read more about Téibo’s contribution below:
“Inspired to bring ‘a spark of hope for the kids of Lockdown’, London based multi-award winning Gospel singer and songwriter, Sarah Téibo is determined to help individuals, families, and communities have a special Christmas this year, with the release of her first-ever Christmas single ‘Hear the Sound’.
She releases the Charity single in aid of Colourful Beginnings, a UK charity which provides families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) across the country with support, as well mini Care Packages to help them begin caring for their newborn premature babies. They plan on making these Care Packages available across the UK, to premature babies born over the Christmas season and 50% of proceeds from the sale of the single will go towards helping them achieve this.
More on “Hear The Sound”
About the project, the singer says, “2020 has been a really tough year for children and families with young children, and in particular for families with premature babies. Covid restrictions have resulted in the absence of hands-on prenatal and postnatal care, as well as family networks for vital support, thus making this season quite stressful for young families. I’m hoping this single will not only help raise awareness of these issues, but also raise more funds to help Colourful Beginnings continue with the great work they are already doing…The song is filled with so much joy and hope; a perfect way to wrap up what has been a very difficult year for many. Funds raised from this single will enable us reach more families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with our Care Packages throughout Christmas and into the New Year.”
