Sunday 24 May was a fantastic day in South Wales. The sun shone, the half term hols had just begun – and Adamsdown Song had made it to number 1 in the internet’s biggest pop chart!
No-one should underestimate what an achievement this is. Soundclick is the world’s top site for musicians uploading their own material. Hundreds of new songs are submitted every week, many of them by artists with serious aims of making it in the music business, who spend an awful lot of time and money promoting their work. Pupils from years 5 and 6 from three Adamsdown schools have beaten them all.
Congratulations to everyone involved. Now we can look forward to the launch of the CD on June 11, when everyone can finally get their hands on it!
