LET THERE BE HOUSE TO HOST MAMMOTH 24-HOUR LIVE STREAM IN AID OF KEY CHANGES CHARITY
Graeme Park, Seb Fontaine, Allister Whitehead, Crazy P’s Danielle Moore, Milk and Sugar and more of the biggest names in the business will join Let There Be House and Last Night A DJ Saved My Life for a 24-hour Set For Love live stream to raise money for the Key Changes charity.
Joining forces with LNADJ after it’s Set For Love triumphs throughout 2020, Let There Be House is celebrating a year of live streaming on Saturday 20th March and the online event will be available via Twitch and Mixcloud Live.
Angelo Ferreri, DJ Rae, Ridney, Sebb Junior, plus residents Glen Horsborough, Queen B, and Jas P also join the bill. During the sets, a JustGiving page will be integrated for donators and all money raised throughout the stream will go directly to the award-winning recovery services for musicians, songwriters, lyricists, vocalists and MCs, provided by Key Changes.
Set up in 1997 by a group of patients at Highgate Mental Health Centre in North London to provide music activities on the wards, Key Changes now work in locations across the UK in partnership with the NHS, local authority and voluntary sector health and social care agencies and music industry organisations. From song-writing to performance, to promoting, Key Changes uses the power of music to help young people and adults affected by mental health conditions. The goal of the Set For Love livestream is to raise at least £10K, which Key Changes will use to start a studio in Manchester for young musicians with depression and anxiety.
Key Changes CEO Peter Leigh said, “Young adults are experiencing the highest levels of depression and anxiety from the pandemic – and in Manchester job losses in hospitality have increased the mental health impact for this age group. There’s never been a greater need for Key Changes’ award-winning programmes here in Manchester.
Music is a powerful tool for engaging younger people in mental health support without stigma and shame. It builds confidence, positive self-identity, self-expression, and connection – all essential to positive mental health. With the amazing support of Last Night a DJ Foundation, Let There Be House, and everyone getting behind this campaign, we’ll be making life-changing opportunities for hundreds of young people in Manchester in the years to come.”
With multiple #1 releases, resident events across the UK and Europe, plus a weekly live stream that has reached over 50 million people in the last year, Let There Be House is teaming up with dance music charity Last Night A DJ Saved My life, which just raised over £128,000 for developing countries suffering from the effects of COVID-19. Together their partnership provides a platform for Key Changes to raise as much awareness and money as possible for the cause.
Crazy P’s Danielle Moore said, “Having personally struggled with mental health at various points in my life, it seems fitting to be asked to play for this event in the knowledge its for an organisation which provides support and advice for people through music. The more we can see the importance in creating an environment positive for our well being the more opportunity we will have to feel strong when things do get tough. This is a great cause.”
