Family Music Challenge

Nottingham Music Hub would like to invite you to get involved with an Easter Challenge that now has been extended until the 2nd May.  In 2016 they released a charity single, If Every Child Could, and they would like to put together a new music video for this single featuring clips of Nottingham City children and young people singing and dancing along to the song!  They would love to receive videos of children getting involved, and then they will choose their favourites to include in the new video

 If Every Child Could…

If every child had someone to love, they wouldn't need to cry.

If every child could be nice to each other, come on let's help them try.

If every child could have something to eat, If every child could hit a beat,

If every child had the chance to dance, wouldn't it be great.

Chorus

If every child in the world could be equal, if every child in the world could be friends.

Could go to school without feeling hungry, if every child could laugh every day, (could laugh everyday)

The world would be a better place (the world would be a better place)

If every child could have a home, and have good friends not be alone,

If every child could own a bed, a place to rest their head,

If every child in the world could be happy, if every child could stand up walk tall.

If every child could have a future, and never feel alone.

Chorus

If every child in the world could be equal, if every child in the world could be friends.

Could go to school without feeling hungry, if every child could laugh every day, (could laugh everyday)

The world would be a better place (the world would be a better place)

Every child is special, every child’s unique,

Every child has hopes and dream’s, let’s listen when they speak

Every child can change the world, every child can dream,

Let’s help them to be heard and seen.

Chorus

If every child in the world could be equal, if every child in the world could be friends.

Could go to school without feeling hungry, if every child could laugh every day, (could laugh everyday)

The world would be a better place (the world would be a better place)

If every child could, every child would, meet the man on the moon, (let’s make it happen)

If every child could, every child would, race with dinosaurs, (let’s make it happen)

If every child could, every child would, imagine a better world (let’s make it happen)

If every child could, every child would, know they are unique (let’s make it happen)

If every child could, every child would, If every child could, every child would, fly, fly

If every child could fly, fly, (fly), fly,

If every child could fly, fly, (fly), fly

If every child could fly, fly, (fly), fly,

If every child could fly, fly, (fly), fly.

The world would be a better place

The world would be a better place
