Carly has teamed up with AmaSing, the non-profit community interest organisation, for a special recording and video performance of Bill Withers’ classic song Lean On Me. AmaSing will be sharing the recordings on 21 May 2020 via social media with organisations, families, and individuals they work with, who have been recently affected by the Covid-19 ‘lockdown’ and disappointed by the subsequentcancellation of some AmaSing local events.
With theaim of keeping the arts alive, AmaSing currently work with schools, teachers and families in Cheshire, The Wirral and North Wales, but is hoping to expand its reach further around the UK in the future. Plans to stage several local concerts featuring local children had to be put on hold causing disappointment to thousands of local families. Schools had been preparing the shows for the past six months which were scheduled at various venues, including the Storyhouse Chester, The William Aston Hall in Wrexham and The Floral Pavilion in New Brighton. One of the songs the children had been planning to perform was Lean On Me and AmaSing came up with the idea of putting together a special recording and video of the song to keep their spirits up during these difficult times.
