“You Are My Song, which James Hawkins Music (JHM) was commissioned to write and produce for a charity campaign, is aimed at raising awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The song expresses how it can feel to live with FASD and how music plays a big role in helping people to express their feelings when words fail.
Jo Garofalo from Voice in a Mllion contacted me having seen other work that I’d done in this area and asked if I would write a song for this project. She wanted a song that would raise awareness of FASD and also be wonderful for a choir of young voices to perform at the Voice in a Million event at Wembley Stadium.
The song needed to represent thoughts and feelings shared by those who live with FASD, to be uplifting and to be meaningful as well to all the children and young people who will sing it at the VIAM concert.“
