Check out this song by these local teenage sisters raising money for Whitechapel Liverpool
Local teenage sisters have written a song for the homeless after feeling deeply saddened by the recent death of a homeless man. ‘ Help Me Please! ’ is out now and they hope to raise money for homeless charity The Whitechapel Centre.
Emily Perry who is 14 years old and sister Lucy Perry, 15, have been involved in music and helping others for most of their lives and decided to write their song titled ‘ Help Me Please!’ after a man who was sleeping rough passed away recently. They decided that using their musical talents was the best way alert people to the problem of homelessness and to go about raising some money which they will donate to The Whitechapel Centre who work with people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Lucy commented: “The Whitechapel Centre do their best to help as many people as they can, but they need more support to help more people who will find themselves homeless, so we wrote this song to help those in need.”
Fundraising for The Whitechapel Centre helps the local charity to continue to provide their vital services that can prevent people from facing a life on the streets. They are extremely grateful for Emily and Lucy’s support.
Sarah Callan, Marketing and Fundraising Officer for The Whitechapel Centre says:
“It’s always inspiring to see young people using their creative skills to help vulnerable people in the community. Emily and Lucy visited with their Mum (Samantha Morley) to play the song to us and we thought it was great. We’re helping the girls in any way we can and wish them every success with their single launch.”
The lyrics of the song talk about the story of a homeless man being ignored while everyone carries on with their life and is performed by the sisters who share the vocals with Lucy playing guitar. The song is well written, beautifully performed and very catchy. Emily and Lucy hope it will tell a story that encourages others to help the vulnerable people in our community.
Emily and Lucy are supported by their Mum, Samantha Morley, who is so proud of what her daughters have achieved. The sisters were encouraged to record and release the track by fellow Scouts after performing the song to their Scout group. They recorded the track at Notre Dame Catholic College with the help of their music teacher Mr John McHugh and they will be packaging and selling the CD themselves. They already have a long list of pre-orders!
The song is also available for download for a donation on Bandcamp: http://sistersrule17.bandcamp.com/track/help-me-please
Mum, Samantha Morley says: ‘The girls have done a fantastic job with this song they have worked as a great team and produced a brilliant product. I came home from a long day at work and was sad as no jobs had been done in the house the excuse was “we have wrote a song instead” being a musician myself I let them off and was amazed at how quick they had figured out the chords, tune and made a story through the lyrics. It was that good and with such a worthwhile cause that’s why we have all put the hours in to get it released to the public’
