Stu­dent’s Cup song

Central Leader - - 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 World Cup or­gan­is­ers, with his song Colours. The song cel­e­brates the com­ing to­gether of na­tions. James spent about two weeks cre­at­ing the words and mu­sic for his en­try, which he recorded him­self. He was also able to have his song pro­fes­sion­ally recorded at Round­head Stu­dios. Join­ing him to record the track were 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.
