Making a dream become a reality, one donation at a time.

by Andrew Bateup in Macclesfield, England, United Kingdom

It's always been an ambition of mine to create my own album. Following on from my time on 'The Voice UK' this year, I've been inspired to make that dream a reality. 

Behind the glamour of appearing on national television is a performer who has been without work for over a year now. The pandemic completely destroyed both the music and theatre industries, leaving vast numbers of performers with very little income. I myself have been unemployed for almost 6 months now and financial assistance available from the government has been very limited. Thankfully there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel for us all! And it looks like we'll be able to sing again very soon. 

Savings that I had acquired prior to the pandemic have inevitably been used up. I had always hoped to make an album with this money but with your help, I'd like to be able to make this dream a reality again. 

The album will be a collection of some of my favourite songs from the worlds of jazz, soul and musical theatre. It will cost around £10,000 to make a high quality album. This will include PR, advertising, photography, design, manufacturing, studio fees, musicians wages and more. It's a lot more expensive than I had ever anticipated! 

Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

All my love,


Let's make 'Debut Album' happen
