The People

 

Welcome to project two - We're All Human. As you know, The L Project is Sofia Antonia Milone and Georgey Payne. If you want to know how this enitre campaign started, read more here.

 

This is our second project, a charity song - music written by Georgey and lyrics co-written with Sofia.

This time we brought together an even larger range of voices, some of whom sent in audition reels to be considered for the project and were picked to participate.

 

The complete team behind this charity single essentially fall into three categories, all of whom have given all of their time, energy and talent for free.

 

The first contributors are the most obvious, the musicians and singers that appear on the track and in video itself. Then of course there are the film-makers that have documented the whole process. And finally there is The L Project themselves, the co-ordinators Georgey and Sofia.

 

Let's introduce to all contributors in our first project, starting from the top... two faces you are undoubtedly famliar with!
