Centre Stage have collectively brought together artists from their open-mic community to contribute to this commission. Different voices combine their perspective on this one music single. They have writen lyrics to show their experience of lockdown. Whether that’s BLM, Covid-19, not seeing family or being able to freely speak/ chase their dreams due to what’s going on politically, environmentally, mentally and emotionally.

Full lyrics can be found here.
