Graduate releases record to raise cash for cancer research

A University of Wolverhampton graduate has released a record to raise money for Cancer Research UK and the Compton Hospice based in Wolverhampton.

Amy Goodall, 22 from Wolverhampton, who studied for a degree in Musical Theatre in the School of Performing Arts at the University’s Walsall Campus, has made the record as a non-profit project.

Amy used the verse and chorus of a song she had written when she was 15, at the time she lost her grandfather, and started to remake it when she was studying at the University.  Her song ‘Piece of Me’ has been released under her stage name, Amy G.

Amy said:  “My grandad was my musical inspiration and he passed away soon after being diagnosed with lung cancer.  I was left to find my own path in music and, years later, found myself thinking about him, especially as more and more people around me were being diagnosed with cancer.”

“I wanted to use my influence in music to create something that will always be relevant to an audience, and be accessible to all audiences. When I lost my grandad to lung cancer this rollercoaster of emotions occurred and this song has been made in his memory. It is also a dedication to those you have lost and to those who are currently battling this journey.” 

Sarah Browne, Head of Music and Musical Theatre at the University, said: “I’m really pleased to see Amy is advancing her career and thinking of others who are less fortunate. Amy was a superb student; thoughtful, driven and exceptionally talented. It’s great to see her professional career going from strength to strength and I’m sure her time on the Musical Theatre course will serve her well. We’re really proud of Amy and all that she continues to achieve.”

Anyone wanting to donate to Amy’s cause should follow the link to her giving page.  Listen to, like and share Amy’s song on YouTube.
