More About Everybody Dreams:
Gladesmore Community school in north London is launching an exciting community initiative this summer. The Song for Tottenham.
Concerned by the negative images of Tottenham that dominated the National and International news last Summer, students felt compelled to do something about this and decided to create a campaign that would show the positive side to the place they live, learn and love.
Students wanted to write, sing and produce a Single and a Music video about their area, which they could launch into the National Music Charts this August, a year on from the disorder that gripped the nation for all the wrong reasons.
The enthusiasm from the school community has been phenomenal. The song has now been written from the hundreds of ideas put forward by the students and it is called ‘Everybody Dreams’ and we believe the ideas, lyrics and music have the winning formula for a Top 10 hit.
“Forget about what you’ve heard,
Forget about what you’ve seen
We’ve found a place to be,
Where everybody dreams..”
At present, we have the support and backing of our local MP David Lammy, the community, businesses, retailers, Tottenham Hotspur Football club, music celebrities, television personalities and other influential figures.
Students have decided they wanted to flip the script and take the media forms that were used to negatively promote the spread of riots and positively use those forms to promote their single. They have created a Viral Campaign using Facebook, Twitter,YouTube and BBM to spread the word and get everyone to download the track on 19th August 2012.
