Silent Night is the stunning debut single from Sing Gospel in aid of The Amber Trust. The single features the beautiful voice of mezzo-soprano Alice Cadman and London based community choir, Sing Gospel.
Silent Night is a mix of the sublime classical voice of Alice Cadman and intricate gospel choir harmonies of Sing Gospel. Interweaving with the orchestra, Sing Gospel and Alice Cadman take the listener soaring on a musical journey, leaving you filled with the elation and joy of Christmas. The single is part of Sing Gospel’s debut album ‘Sing Christmas’, available now.
Alice Cadman was diagnosed with Stargardt’s disease, a juvenile form of macular dystrophy, at the age of 23 whilst studying singing at the Royal Northern College of Music. Undeterred, Alice has set up her own education business, and works as a professional singer. Now partially-sighted, Alice has a passion for raising awareness of sight loss and disability in education and business, and has teamed up with her husband, musical director of Sing Gospel, to create a Christmas single that would do just that. Silent Night is raising money for The Amber Trust, whose vision is to give blind or partially-sighted children the best possible chance to fulfil their musical aspirations.
