Little-known independent act LZ7 are on course to receive a Top 40 chart placing this Sunday with their new single This Little Light.Despite no airplay and being on a small label, the urban collective’s track which updates the familiar 1920′s gospel song, and is spearheading the Shine Your Light charity campaign is making waves with the single-buying public.
Lead vocalist Lindz had this to say about the news:
We are so excited about what can happen if LZ7 get into the top 40. Shine Your Light will go to a whole new level and imagine the acts of kindness that would happen as a result! Inspiring young people to make good fashionable and God famous will be amazing for us … on Sunday we will in all honesty be preparing for a schools week up in Bolton we love it!
LZ7 – Lindz, Rob on drums, singer Nic and dancer/singer Nana – has a sound described as a mix of Beastie Boys and Dizzee Rascal.
The vast majority of the band’s time is spent in Manchester’s high schools teaching and talking with pupils but Lindz and the band travel widely, performing around the world to a growing fan base.
This Little Light came about as a result of a collaboration with Manchester based charity The Message Trust and is named after their latest campaign.
Shine Your Light is a national campaign to â€œmake goodness fashionable. Aiming to unleash the full potential of the nation’s young people, The Message Trust is challenging kids across the UK to do fifteen specific acts of kindness for their friends, family and local community including spending time with the elderly, buying lunch for a homeless person or picking up litter.
