“Home” the hard-hitting and highly emotive new single from artist Brooke Law, which speaks about homelessness and how no one should be on the streets, especially this time of year. 100% of proceeds will be going to the UK Charity, Crisis.
“I can’t imagine not being home at Christmas with my family and the thought of being all alone or unable to be comforted by loved ones at such a difficult time really affected me. I just felt that I could be doing more to help someone less fortunate than I am. There are 320,000 homeless people in the UK, and we can all give a gift of a Crisis Christmas to give a homeless person a home on Christmas day. I hope that my song will not only reach out emotionally to those in need, but will also provide some practical help through donations.”Law shares
Brooke started song-writing at the age of 15, studied a music degree at the Institute of Contemporary Music, during which time she began writing with leading producers who have also worked with Ellie Goulding, Dua Lipa and Lana Del Ray. She is the epitome of a fun, driven, empowering, caring and above all gutsy.
In 2019 she was selected by BBC Asian Network and BBC Music Introducing Essex as one of their ‘Artists to Watch’. Pre-Covid-19, Brooke had been giving electrifying performances on both the London nightlife scene and in some of the UK’s favorite music venues.
Welcome Brooke! I would love to learn more about why issue of homelessness is so important to you?
It’s a really unsettling time for everyone at the moment and we all miss people, many of us have lost people we love. However, knowing that we will be able to see family or friends at christmas gives us all hope. Christmas is always a hard time for those that are homeless. Being at home in the warmth with my family is what makes christmas for me, which is why I wanted to donate the song to Crisis and raise awareness about homelessness and encourage people to buy Crisis christmas gifts this year.
What was the process like writing this song?
I was speaking to my friend about how I miss my sister who has been working in Lebanon, I hated the thought she might not be around at Christmas. This whole year people have had to be apart from those they love, locked down in different places. We ended up writing about Home and Christmas not being the same until the one you love comes back home.
What do you hope to do next with your music career?
I have lots planned for next year, including a new single in January. I’ve been working on my sound and have changed things up a bit so am sooo excited to start releasing it.
Since this is a Philly blog, I wanted to share Philly-based non-profits that help those who are experiencing homelessness to consider supporting:
