B Positive Choir Debut New Single ‘Rise Up’ To Raise Awareness Of The Need For Blood Donors | Music News
MOBO Awards have partnered with NHS Blood and Transplant to raise the awareness of sickle cell disease and to help recruit new blood donors. They have gathered a B Positive choir and released their rendition of an inspiring single “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
The choir is led by Colin Anderson and formed of 60 people, who live with the disease, including the ones who are helping their family members and friends. They recently performed their first live show at none other than the recently concluded MOBO Awards ceremony in Leeds. The live performance was fronted by ‘The Queen of UK Gospel’, an amazing vocalist Lurine Cato.
Sickle cell disease is the most common genetic blood disorder in the UK and right now there’s an urgent need for more new black donors, because a similar ethnic background provide the best match. The campaign’s aim is to encourage young people and gather new donors, especially among black, asian and minority ethnicities, to help the people with sickle cell disease.
One donation takes up only an hour of your time and can save up to three lives! More information on how to become blood donor is here. You can also support the campaign by downloading the powerful track “Rise Up” here.
