The Song for Everyone by Lucy Morris

The Song for Everyone is a beautiful story celebrating the power of music and community. What would your song look like if we could see it? What colour would it be? What shape? What would it say? How would it touch others?

A delicate tune from a tiny window builds a bridge between people, wrapping around them like a blanket and telling people what they need to hear. Life, love and happiness travel on these notes communicating emotions and truth.

My daughter is always singing. The joy she finds in music is infectious and lifts everyone who hears it. In 2018, she was a finalist for Leeds Children’s Mayor with her manifesto about making music accessible for all children. She strongly believes that music has a significant impact on mental health and learning. During the first lockdown of 2020, she was a member of Gareth Malone’s Great British Home Chorus. Being able to sing everyday with thousands of others lifted her spirits and gave her purpose. Music is comforting, healing and a true friend.
