Today, exactly one year since theatres closed due to the pandemic, the Make a Difference Trust are releasing a charity single ‘I Dare You’ featuring a huge number of West End stars and with an appeal by Vanessa Williams, raising funds for the MAD Covid-19 Emergency relief Fund.
The video features Aimie Atkinson, Samantha Barks, Sharon D Clarke, Kerry Ellis, Shaun Escoffery, Shanay Holmes, Francesca Jackson, Cassidy Janson, Aisha Jawando, Tosh Wanogho-Maud, Jamie Muscato, Eva Noblezada, Natalie Paris, Jay Perry, Louise Redknapp, Oliver Tompsett, Faye Tozer, Sally Ann Triplett, Rachel Tucker, Marisha Wallace & Layton Williams.
Bringing the indomitable spirit of the West End together in one glorious celebration, the cover of the hit Kelly Clarkson track is the perfect anthem for a community who may not have the stage, but still have a voice.
From their own homes, over 200 members of the theatre community have been a part of this very unique version.
The Make A Difference Trust has always been about community; the theatre community coming together to help those in need.
In May last year, The Trust revived and repurposed their Emergency Fund in order to support those on stage and behind the scenes experiencing hardship because of the Coronavirus crisis. Every penny received will be used to support those in the theatre industry in need during these difficult times.
