"Black Voices also ran workshops in schools supported by Youth Music, so I've seen how funding by Youth
Music can be used in creative ways to bring diverse music to young people.
"I think Give a Gig is a really good idea because it allows singers, musicians and venues to do what they're already doing for the benefit of a young person starting or continuing their own personal journey with music. A child that's funded by Youth Music through Give a Gig might be in the position to give their own gig further down the line and that's a really great circle to be part of.
''I feel a responsibility to make sure that the next generation are in the best possible standing to keep making and enjoying music and if I can do that while I'm performing then that's great."
