A Song Dave Cousins Co-wrote Premieres At The UN Conference

It’s not so often that a fresh piece co-penned by a veteran artist has the participants of a United Nations event among its first listeners, yet that’s what happened this week when those attending the UN Water Conference heard “The Water Song” which is the result of collaboration between STRAWBS’ Dave Cousins, a trustee of The Commonwealth Medical Trust who submitted the composition to the international gathering, and Kendra, a 15-year-old South African schoolgirl.

According to Cousins, everything began last Christmas, when he was asked to write with Kendra, and a few Zoom calls later “The Water Song” came into existence to both of its creators’ satisfaction. Afterwards, the girl brought the cut to the Head of Music at St. Dominic’s Priory in Gqeberha, her school, who taught it to the Foundation Phase Choir, the 8- and 9-year-olds, and the Grade Ten Marimba Band. The result can be seen below – take this message to your heart.
