During COVID19 lockdown in April 2020, Colin Willsher has brought together (at home) 121 professional musicians to produce a mass-isolation recording and video project featuring Stevie Wonder's iconic, feel-good hit 'Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing'.
All proceeds to a very important charity that really needs our help at this time.
This unique rendition is shared between 40 vocalists, 13 drummers, 11 bass players, 15 guitarists, 12 keyboard players, 29 horns and a cello! All are musicians that Colin has worked with over 40 years with contributors from France, Spain, New York, London and many from his home city of Southampton, UK.
These outstanding performers are the now redundant musicians that until recently entertained you in everything from your local pub to the biggest of venues, alongside top artists and in theatre shows and musicals. They played at your weddings and corporate functions and teach in your schools, colleges and universities. The track also features the voice of twice BBC Best Jazz Vocalist winner, Ian Shaw.
We will be back ! We just wanted to let you know that we are still here and to show you how much you have missed us! :)
While many of us are struggling with no income and little (if any) government help, we are using this time to raise money for the many who are suffering from cancer in much under-funded hospices during this horrendous crisis.
Enjpy the music and please support this amazing charity.
Over 7000 views in the first 3 days and £1500 raised for charity. But this is just the start!
Sadly I have had to discontinue sales of the Single on my website, since HMRC say I would have to pay tax on all donations. Boo!
Instead I would like to direct you to the JustGiving page and if you would like a copy, just send proof of your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to send you the track directly.
Otherwise, enjoy this epic video and thank you for your support.
I would love to encourage other singers to record this song and maybe upload response videos featuring your own home movies and photos - make it your own!
All I ask is that you credit the writer, send me a link and reciprocate with a link back to the original video.
To acquire the backing track, lyrics and chord sheet for this song just send me an email or use the contact form.
I look forward to hearing your take on this!
