Spotlight on EUTC [Autumn 2016 - Issue 03]

We are delighted to share 'Light the Way' (a song and promotional music video produced by EUTC and Team Margot) and written by two of our alumni students.

They were so inspired by Margot Martini, that they wrote a song in her memory. Margot Martini tragically lost her battle with blood cancer and has since sparked an international movement in stem cell donor recruitment. 

Grace Hynds (18) and Daniella Bernard (18) have since performed and recorded their ballad, “Light the Way”, assisted by their fellow students and college tutors and supported by various professional musicians, including a string quartet from the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a 17-strong choir.

EUTC Students have produced, shot, edited and recorded all the content in the music video in collaboration with college tutors. This is an astounding feat given the scale of the project. 

It is widely available from today, at no charge. Viewers and listeners are being urged to register as potential stem cell donors as soon as possible and to then encourage ‘Just One More’ person to do the same.

We are so incredibly proud to share this with you, and we hope you in turn will share it with your peers.
