Hear The Sound – Sarah Téibo
Written by The Transition on 23/12/2020
Sarah Téibo is a Soulful Gospel Artist (United Kingdom). Music has been a feature in her life since the age of ten but in 2015 she took the next step in her music career, becoming a recording artist with her debut single Steal My Joy, followed by her debut album Walk with me which received wide plaudits, earning a MOBO nomination for Best Gospel and winning Premier Gospel’s Album of the Year. In addition to her music career, Sarah is also a Wife and Mother, Worship Leader at Kings Church, and the Author of Sex Interrupted: A Scripture Inspired Guide to Love, Relationships and Sex for Singles. And amongst all these responsibilities, she still managed to find the time to take on a philanthropic role with her latest project.
Sarah has released Christmas single Hear The Sound and it is truly a gift – the song is a Christmas classic with a twist, balancing a carol-like vibe with afro infusion for all to enjoy. However, this release is far more than music. The single is targeting making Christmas special for kids on the back of what has been a difficult year due to the implications of the coronavirus pandemic. Coronavirus and the restrictions that have accompanied have impacted almost every area of society, but while the world has been preoccupied with the effects on the global economy, there has been little thought spared for the countless children who were forced to separate from their friends and regular routines during lockdown.
Witnessing the detrimental effect lockdown had on her daughters, the artist was inspired to build a campaign around her newest release to counter the dreary nature of this year for children. Thinking of ways to reach children who have been deprived of their livelihoods this year, she decided to invite several young people to be involved in the music video for the upbeat single, creating a colourful display featuring a host of jubilant children in visuals that aim to spread the euphoria expressed in the song with boys and girls all over the world.
Pushing further, Sarah Téibo partnered with Colourful Beginnings – a charity that provides support for families who have babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The charity offers care packages to parents whose babies are born prematurely, helping to meet the demands of caring for a new-born, and are working towards making these care packages available across the United Kingdom. Continuing with the theme of helping children, Sarah’s partnership with the charity will help raise awareness of their work and she is pledging 50% of the proceeds from the single to Colourful Beginnings, assisting them with their mission.
“2020 has been a tough year for children and families with young children, particularly those with premature babies. Covid restrictions have resulted in the absence of hands-on prenatal and postnatal care and blocked family networks from providing vital support, making this season stressful for young families. My intention with this single is both to increase awareness of these issues, and raise funds for Colourful Beginnings to support them in the great work they are already doing.”
The Christmas single – Hear The Sound by Sarah Téibo is available for purchase now and the music video is coming out on December 18th.
