A RECORD-breaking beatboxer is launching a huge project to help kids and raise money for NHS Charities Together.

Bradford Fringe Festival will be a virtual venue for SK Shlomo’s Homeskool Beatbox Adventures, a weekly livestreamed interactive show empowering kids and their families to find their voices and create their own music.

For 30 minutes every Thursday through the Bradford Fringe Festival’s Facebook Page, families from Bradford and around the world will learn new vocal skills from SK Shlomo, the critically acclaimed world-champion beatboxer who has previously collaborated with Ed Sheeran and Lily Allen, played at Glastonbury and broken world records with his jaw-dropping vocal gymnastics.

Inspired by the success of his critically acclaimed tour show, Shlomo’s Beatbox Adventures For Kids, he wants to teach families in quarantine how to become Superstar Beatboxers and has set up a JustGiving campaign to try to raise £2500 for NHS Charities Together in the process.

“It’s a show about believing in yourself.” says Shlomo. “Finding confidence in your own voice is extremely empowering. That’s even more important when so many of us are feeling disconnected - we don’t know how we can help the world. This project can bring people together, connect the world up and raise funds for the heroes on the frontline who we appreciate so much.”

In order to involve as many families as possible SK Shlomo has partnered up with over 80 music venues and theatres, Bradford Fringe Festival being one of these, to simulcast the free weekly educational show on their digital platforms to thousands of homes worldwide. He will also be joined by one of his talented friends each episode including Bastille, KT Tunstall, Bill Bailey, Basement Jaxx, Jason Mraz and BBC Radio 1’s Dr Rahda.

The first show is this Thursday at 2pm and can be viewed by visiting Bradford Fringe Festival on Facebook.
