Kaos signing choir again!

On 3rd December (International Day of Persons With Disabilities), The Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf and Hearing Children joined the British Paraorchestra to release a single 'True Colors'. This single is expected to be a hit this Christmas.

I have earlier written about the Kaos Signing Choir who performed wonderfully in the opening ceremony of London 2012 Olympics. The British Paraorchestra is the first of its kind; it is made up of professional musicians with a disability. It was founded by Charles Hazlewood, a British conductor. The group is starting a global movement to encourage musicians with disabilities and who possess extraordinary abilities. Its mission is to put an end end to the limitations that have been placed on them, particularly by lack of opportunity.

Please check out "the British Paraorchestra - True Colors" on youtube.

A very interesting fact here is that the solo voice heard at the beginning and end of the track belongs to Lyn Levett (a member of the Paraorchestra). Lyn has cerebral palsy and cannot speak. However with state-of-the-art technology, she sings through her computer in 'True Colors', for the very first time. Amazing!!
