Colour­ful an­them

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT -

If you’re vis­it­ing the Fan­zones dur­ing the Fifa U20 World Cup in June, lis­ten out for a song by Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School mu­sic stu­dent James Don­ald­son. James was the joint win­ner of a com­pe­ti­tion run by the Play It Strange Trust on be­half of the cup or­gan­is­ers, with his song Colours. Fifa wanted a song by a young New Zealan­der that cel­e­brated the com­ing to­gether of na­tions for ‘‘one pas­sion in one place’’. James spent about two weeks writ­ing his en­try, which was pro­fes­sion­ally recorded at Round­head Stu­dios with fel­low MAGS mu­si­cians Nathan Rhodes-Hasler on lead gui­tar and Reuben Brooks on drums. Colours will be played at Fan­zones set up for the public to watch matches on big screens, and may also be played at sta­di­ums.
