A new non-profit company is willing to perform your favourite movie and TV songs – with Makaton signing! More details here.
Here at Film Stories, we’re delighted to be supporting the work of Together Community here in the West Midlands. It’s a non-profit company of special needs professionals, who are looking to bring their shared expertise to supporting young people who have special needs or are living with the effects of a rare condition. The plan? Give these youngsters the opportunities to fulfil their potential.
It’s a lovely project that’s just got up and running, and one of the many things they’ve already been doing is recording versions of popular songs, with added Makaton signing.
We thus asked the fine people there a question: could the lovely readers of Film Stories set them the test of performing popular TV theme tunes or movie songs? Could we put together a list that we’ve love to see performed with Makaton signing?
Well, they’re up for it, and so it’s over to you. Please leave your suggestions for songs in the comments.
Here’s ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ to give you a flavour. Thus far we’ve suggested the theme tune to The Mysterious Cities Of Gold – but now it’s over to you…
UPDATE: the first request is in! You wanted the theme tune to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? You got it. Support Together’s work on its crowdfunding page, here.
