Brianna’s Anglesey’s song It happens all the time has won this year’s Singout4Justice competition. Her song deals with bullying.
Brianna is a Year 8 student at Thorndon School, and she wins a $400 music voucher and a $100 Caritas Gifts voucher. She was presented with her prize by Don McGlashin.
Briana’s song took up the call of this year’s competition focus, ‘A voice for the voiceless’. This invited young people to consider ways their song can be a voice for the poor, the vulnerable and those who live with oppression. Listen to and read more about Brianna’s song.
