B. Sloop Foundation : Bermuda Sloop Song

B. Sloop Foundation

Heather Nova's Bermuda Sloop CD Together As One EP was released and can locally be bought already on Bermuda. We will give information when we hopefully find out how to order it from other parts of the world. Stay tuned.

The CD has three songs.

1. "Together As One", a special song for the Bermuda Sloop Foundation to help them raise funds. This song was earlier titled "Bermuda Sloop Song".

2. "Sail On", a poem written by Ms Nova’s father, John Frith, that Heather Nova put to music.

3. "I Wanna Be Your Light" live from London, previously released on the Union Chapel DVD.

Kwame Harris of Paget Primary and Laurin Davis of Elliot Primary, both of whom are ten years old, were approached to sing part of the chorus. Marcus Smith, who is nine and attends Prospect Primary, also sang in the chorus. Mr. David Roache entered and won the Island wide competition for a local male to sing the harmony on "Together as One".

Some DVD footage with a live performance of Heather Nova (recorded aboard "Amistad" in May 2005) was added.

The CD costs $10 and all proceeds will go the Bermuda Sloop Foundation and ultimately the youth of Bermuda.

We'll keep you updated.
