On Tuesday 17 November Music Generation Kilkenny marked the launch of 'Feel the Victory', a brand new song written by and for young people.
The original song, written and performed by six young musicians, was developed during a week-long summer camp hosted in August by Music Generation Kilkenny in partnership with the DRUM (Foróige Youth Centre Kilkenny).
The camp gave the young people an opportunity to develop their songwriting and sound production skills, through a mix of online and in-studio sessions.
The result was 'Feel the Victory' - an inspiring musical response to the young musicians' own experiences of Covid-19, and a message of hope and resilience to other children and young people during challenging times.
The singers and musicians - Enya, Laura, Clodagh, Cathal, Charlotte and Katie - were mentored by Music Generation Kilkenny musician educators and producers Mark Colbert and Anthony Donnelly.
The song has had such resonance that Music Generation Kilkenny since released a music video, shot by videographer Shane Hatton in locations across Kilkenny and making 'Feel the Victory' a real signature sound for the county!
