This year, children around the world are being invited to raise their voices and join a global effort to raise awareness of childhood cancer through the recording of new single “We Are One”.

Raise your voice against cancer this International Childhood Cancer Awareness day.
Raise your voice against cancer this International Childhood Cancer Awareness day.

This exciting project has been set up by Childhood Cancer International (CCI) as childhood cancer organisations across the world prepare to mark International Childhood Cancer Day on February 15th 2016. Working with 14 incredible child singers and composer Christophe Beck, who is famous for his creation of the ever popular soundtrack to Disney’s smash hit Frozen!, CCI have created a new single “We Are One” which they hope will honour children around the world who are bravely battling childhood cancer.

The exciting thing about this unique project is that children around the world are being invited to take part! Children are invited to sing and record the chorus of We Are One on the child4child website. On February 15th the single will then be released with the chorus featuring all the voices recorded!

If you (or your child) would like to take part it’s easy! Just follow the steps below:

1 – Download the words to We Are One chorus here
2 – Learn the chorus by listening to sample clips on the child4child website
3 – When you are ready, click the yellow “Record the Chorus” button to record your version of the song. You don’t have to single alone – an adult can sing with a child or a group of friends can sing together

Then you’re done! All you have to do now is wait for International Childhood Cancer Day on February 15th when the song will be released on music streaming platforms such as Spotify and iTunes.

Tip – if you would like to raise awareness of Candlelighters why not wear your Candlelighters t-shirt in your clip? We’d love to see your clips – why not share them on your social media using #CandlelightersUK?
