Young people attending New Horizon Youth Centre put on a fantastic show at the Somers Town Fair on Saturday 14th September.
Our talented lyricist and rapper Paul D opened proceedings with an evocative tale of London Life set to Big Noyd’s Usual Suspects – a soulful 90’s Hip Hop beat.
Next up was Brandon R who got Somerstown smiling, dancing and waving their hands in the air like they just didn’t care with a freestyle that urged the crowd to visit the New Horizon Youth Centre Crepe Stall just up the road.
This was also the first public performance of music Brandon has written and recorded in our studio. Propelled by an insistent rhythm and infectious horn riff, the track had Somers Town Festival dancing in the street and must surely have helped the Crepe Stall on what was a record day for sales.
Radiating confidence from the stage, Kirstie K gave an accomplished and passionate performance of Leona Lewis’ I Will Be. Her studio recording of the track is featured on the forthcoming Swag FM show. French rapper Aly B aka ‘Baka’ impressed with his verbally dextrous take on Logic’s Young Sinatra and was followed by a live debut from Jani L who performed No Strings Attached, one of many catchy tunes penned and recorded by Jani at New Horizon Youth Centre.
Well done to all the performers and many thanks to all those young people who showed up to support.
