ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On Mother’s Day 2019 some of the country’s greatest composers and musicians, including Dame Evelyn Glennie, John Rutter, Will Todd and Debbie Wiseman OBE launched #ShareTheLove - a new campaign by national charity Soundabout to raise awareness of the vital role that music plays in the lives of people with complex learning disabilities.

Inspired by Jessica (17) who has cerebral palsy and is non-verbal, and her paramedic mum Natalie Greaves (BBC Ambulance), the campaign film depicts these renowned composers being challenged to put themselves into the position of people, and to say ‘I Love You’ using sound alone.

Their resulting musical fragments – three notes from each composer – have been woven into a beautiful new composition by music producer James Hawkins. The track - “Jessica’s Lullaby" performed by outstanding pianist Derek Paravicini was released on Mother’s Day to raise funds for Soundabout’s work with profoundly disabled children.

Members of the public are also invited to go online at www.soundabout.org.uk/sharethelove and choose one of the selection of ‘I Love You’ musical messages, to #ShareTheLove online with someone special on Mother’s Day and beyond.

Dame Evelyn Glennie said, “Music is the single most essential communication tool we have, and one that everyone has access to – regardless of ability or disabilites. This campaign shines a light on the vital role the essential role music plays in the lives of people who would otherwise exist in a very solitary world. I would ask everyone to #ShareTheLove and ensure Soundabout can continue to unlock the potential of people with profound learning disabilities.”

Jessica’s mum, Paramedic Natalie Greaves, who features on BBC Ambulance said, “Sound is an integral part of my relationship with Jessica and we use this to strengthen our deep love and affection for each other. I know that Jessica has huge potential which is why I understand the invaluable work that ‘Soundabout’ does, their passion for helping to unlock the potential of children with complex needs through singing, music and sounds and the difference this can make to a child’s life, just like Jess.”

Composer Debbie Wiseman OBE, said, "This is a wonderful campaign. Soundabout doesn’t just unlock the door to freedom from isolation; it flings it wide open with a welcoming fanfare to a world of possibilities for every child it meets with the outstanding work it does. #ShareTheLove, share the music, so that everyone finds the key to unlock their own voice, and gets the chance to dance in their own special way to their own special tune."

Clare Cook, CEO of the charity Soundabout explains, "Like many of Soundabout’s clients, Jessica is nonverbal but shows us how to use music, sound and silence to communicate. Although we are all born with an innate musical ability, many of us lose confidence in using it as we get older. At Soundabout we know that music is the key to unlocking the door to an otherwise isolated world for people with profound learning disabilities, and we empower teachers and families to have the confidence to do the same. So please help us to continue our vital work, support our campaign and #ShareTheLove” through music."

Music producer James Hawkins, who was the creative director the project said, “Where words fail, music speaks and this project encapsulates the power of music and communication, and how it is all around us all the time. Music is the sound of our emotions and although we can’t see it, we can feel it. We should all open our ears and be more Jessica.”
