"I would like Stephen to be remembered as a young man who had a future. He was well loved, and had he been given the chance to survive maybe he would have been the one to bridge the gap between black and white because he didn't distinguish between black or white. He saw people as people” Doreen Lawrence
In just two weeks time Ellie Goulding will take to the stage alongside some of the biggest names in British music for ‘Unity – A Concert for Stephen Lawrence’. Also performing at the concert will be Jahmene Douglas and the London Community Gospel Choir.
Ellie said: "I am thrilled to be joining the line up alongside amazing artists for such a worthwhile event - to be able to use music for a good cause is a dream for me so I hope that everyone who comes has a fantastic night and that the message will help to make positive and meaningful changes to peoples' lives. This is about all of us uniting for social empowerment."
The concert aims to unite communities and bring people of all backgrounds together through the common language of music. It marks the 20th anniversary of Stephen Lawrence’s murder. Through the work of Stephen’s mother, Doreen Lawrence and The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, Britain is changing but there is still much more to be done. The SL20 campaign, set up by the Trust to mark this important anniversary, aims to highlight Stephen’s legacy and the vital work undertaken by the charity in his name. This concert will play a pivotal role in the SL20 initiative.
