Jessica Ennis~ in with the IN CROWD!
The race for the #1 spot in the charts is ON with Gladesmore School’s ‘Everybody Dreams,’ released this week, going head to head with Justin Bieber’s latest offering. With PR Company Ketchum Pleon’s press release last Friday, stating that Mayor Boris Johnson is calling for people to get behind ‘Everybody Dreams’ and take it to #1 over Bieber, I thought we would take a look at the difference in attitude between these young rivals.
Firstly, let’s consider... Justin Bieber is classed as an adult by UK standards whilst Gladesmore pupils are still pupils, yet look at the difference in maturity. Whilst Justin Bieber is disgracing himself in the eyes of the World’s press by making personal remarks about Prince William’s premature hair loss, Gladesmore are taking a stand and trying to make a difference not only to their local community but to people’s perception of youth. Let’s take a look at recent events
What message is Justin Bieber giving?
1) He has a great head of hair and enjoys drawing attention to it by knocking a popular public figure
2) It is OK to make abusive remarks in public that demean another person
3) It is OK to publicly disrespect people and expect them to agree with your priorities... including Royalty
4) Appearance is everything...
It would appear that Justin is a shallow person who has been so wrapped up in the trappings of fame that he is out of touch with the everyday person’s needs and the importance of being a good role model.
Gladesmore School Pupils’ message
1) We want to show the world that we have pride in ourselves and our area
2) The past is the past but you can change the future and people’s perceptions
3) If you believe in something you have to dedicate yourself to making it happen
4) There is love ... everywhere!
Gladesmore staff and pupils’ have worked hard not only to produce this track, they have dedicated their holidays to it; committing to a schedule of public appearances allowing them to share their message and make the dream a reality.
Another highly significant consideration is that whilst Justin Bieber thinks it is acceptable to publicly insult Royalty, Gladesmore School have a high regard for Royalty, Queen Elizabeth having awarded them with a Royal Crest last July- one of only 4 schools ever to have received a Royal Crest! The crest was given for the school’s long running ‘Value Life’ campaign, which speaks for itself.
If Everybody Dreams fulfils its potential not only as a #1 hit and anthem for the youth, but becomes a permanent charity... possibly aimed at running youth projects in schools and the community, maybe Prince Harry would like to be patron... in fact, why wait... maybe some of the Royal Family might like to lend their support right now, who knows...a little banner holding or a video message!
AND Jessica Ennis... has been tweeted heavily today showing support to help Everybody Dreams reach that #1 spot!...
QUESTION: WHO ELSE IS SUPPORTING EVERYBODY DREAMS?
Answer: We don’t have enough space to answer this question but we’ll have a shot at it!
Firstly, a whole host of celebrities from the music world including British sweethearts Leona Lewis and Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah, massive support from the Lover’s Rock Fraternity & DJ’s... the list goes on + other public figures including Mayor Boris Johnson, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe & other members of the force who have attended events & tweeted. With Gladesmore being a school it is good to see they have support from Sir Michael Wilshaw, Head of OFSTED!!
