Our group Everyday People:LDN of teenage refugees and asylum seekers have arranged and created new parts to the song below especially for you to learn and perform this amazing song with your pupils.
The song is based on Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone, the first major multi-racial, mixed-gender band in rock history. The song is one of Sly Stone‘s pleas for peace and equality between differing races and social groups, a major theme and focus for both the band and for the young people we work with.
You can hear a breath-taking version of the song performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers on BBC Radio 3 here
Everyday People LDN is delivered in partnership with the British Red Cross. You can meet them here:
