Sarah McLachlan and students from the Sarah McLachlan School of Music recorded an original Christmas song and music video last month featuring original lyrics by student Freya Cirulis (age 17) with music by SoM students.
"Space on the Couch for Two" features McLachlan on lead vocals with background vocals and instruments performed by students.
This song is offered free of charge on the Sarah McLachlan School of Music website: sarahschoolofmusic.com in hopes of continuing to provide opportunities for at-risk youth in Vancouver, BC to learn music. All proceeds from the sale of the song will go to support the Sarah McLachlan School of Music.
McLachlan posted the folowing on the website:
Christmas isn't going to be easy for many this year, so I have decided to give the world a gift of music! The students at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music and I have created a new Christmas song that you can download entirely for free! If you can afford a $1 or $5 contribution to our school, it would warm my heart as we continue to provide free music lessons to at-risk youth. Happy Holidays!
