After inspiring millions of viewers around the world with a thrilling performance at the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympic Games, the British Paraorchestra, the world’s first ensemble of professional disabled musicians, is aiming to top the charts this Christmas with its heart-warming version of ‘True Colors’.
The single will be released on Monday 3 December 2012 – the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities – and features The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf & Hearing Children and the voices of ParalympicsGB.
The solo voice heard at the beginning and end of the track belongs to Lyn Levett, from the Paraorchestra. Lyn has cerebral palsy and cannot speak. With state-of-the-art technology she sings through her computer in True Colors, for the very first time.
Proceeds from sales of the British Paraorchestra 'True Colors' will go towards supporting the ParalympicsGB team at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, to enable The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf & Hearing Children set up a new Saturday Signing Choir and to fund their next signed song DVD, and for the future growth and development of The British Paraorchestra.
