About

Wish Upon A Star - with David Boomah 

About this project  

Who am I? 

Hello people all over the world. My name is David Boomah and I am a singer/songwriter, DJ radio host and performer. I also have 23 years experience working with underprivileged young people and a post-graduate degree in youth and community work. 

My goal 

To make inspiring music with positive messages and to use music as a tool to educate and spread positive vibrations. Throughout my career I have been working with at risk young people and using music as a tool to prevent them from getting drawn into offending and anti-social behaviour. 

I do a great deal of work in the community with young people who have limited opportunities. I have seen that music intervention can have an amazing ability to transform and re-direct young people who have lost their way. 

Why am I raising funds with Kickstarter? 
The first reason is to raise funds to release the my first single on my own record label "Forward Ever Recordings" because I would love to have more control in the way my music and image is presented. I am in the process of creating my second album and have recorded a beautiful song called "Wish Upon A Star". It is my dream to self-release this song as the first single from my forthcoming album so 80% of the funds raised will go towards the production, remix production, mastering, art work, video production and promotion of "Wish Upon A Star" 
The other reason for raising these funds is to enable and support work with disadvantaged youth. 
Therefore the remaining 20% of the funds raised will go directly to the delivery of music workshops/courses and training for at risk young people in deprived neighbourhoods across London.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

There are little or no risks or challenges we are worried about other than raising the required funds as we are pulling together to develop the project and we are experienced in our respective fields. The original song has already been written and recorded, we have identified an artist to create the art work for the single, we have a number of producers keen to remix the track, we have identified a cinematographer to direct and shoot the video and we have a reputable PR company interested in promoting the release.

Charitable Work

The Charitable work also presents little or no risks as sessions are already taking place, but funding is low so anything the charity that I work with can get to support these sessions goes a very long way and allows us to continue to make a difference to the lives of young people who have limited opportunities.
