Battersea Power Station Community Choir recently partnered with Battersea based songwriter and producer Dan Swana and artists from Nine Elms Arts Ministry to write and record the song ‘Hope is to Heal’, which celebrates hope and challenges us with a call to unity and love during these challenging times.

The writing workshops and rehearsals were all conducted via zoom and the forty or so participants recorded their parts on their smartphones with children from St George’s Church of England Primary School in Battersea singing the chorus. An animated film has been created by Battersea based film company, Chocolate Films, to accompany the song and it is being released today.

Please watch it on the links- it inspires hope and love and community...and we just love it!
