Pride Men's Chorus London in COVID-19 quarantine isolation - "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"
In 2016, Pride Men's Chorus London came together on stage for the first time ever to show love and support for the community after the horrific events in Pulse in Orlando. The first song we performed during that vigil was the 1969 hit from The Hollies: “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”. This year, some of our choir members decided to take on a different challenge and perform the same song from our first concert - this time with a camera, a microphone and completely alone on stage. In a year that has taken so much, we wanted to give back to our community in London and around the world by echoing the feeling of this song and say that no matter what you are going through, we are here for you. Although the song was written with gender-specific lyrics, our intention by singing this goes beyond gender, orientations, sex or anything that might seem to separate us: these 18 voices come together today to show we are strong and more together than ever. Let’s begin a New Year with the intention of practicing true love for one another, like this beautiful song says. Happy New Year 2021! *** Words by: Bob Russell Music by: Bobby Scott Copyright 1969 Harrison Music Company Arranged by Bobby Buchanan for the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angels Used by permission of the arranger Choir members: Emerson Ross Florencio Viray Jesse Dayrit Sheldon Bumstead Elliott Cooper Javier Rodriguez Andrew Kaszowski Rod Culham Matt Fluter Paul Cooper Bill Moote Edward Ede Jordan Smith Doug Cottrell David Hiebert Jim Lawton Allan Dewhirst Daniel Blaxall Band members: John Wiebe - Guitar Ross Castioni - Bass Don Dupuis - Drums Bryan Gloyd - Keyboard Clark Bryan - Piano Production staff: Clark Bryan - Artistic Director and Producer Christoph Babin - Audio Recording Engineer David Girt - Lighting Design Cindy Thomas - Production Assistant Rod Culham - Conductor
