If Every Child Could

What started as an idea by a Nottingham city school teacher in December 2015 materialised in a beautiful and inspirational song a year later. 'If Every Child Could' is a collaboration of over 800 young people, including 500+ singers, 300 children who either sent in song lyrics or designs for the poster competition, and our Robin Hood Youth Orchestra.

The song took over 8 months of hard work but was worth all the effort! You can support our charity by downloading the song from: iTunes, Google Play, Amazon or Microsoft Store. All proceeds will be used to fund life-changing music programmes for young people in Nottingham city.

The audio recording was done by YMCA Digital Studios and the video recording and editing was done by Swainson Productions.
