In 2017, during Black History month, Team Margot launched a photographic exhibition at London’s City Hall, in collaboration with the Education and Youth team’s Peer Outreach Workers. ‘The Power of One’ exhibition sought to highlight the difference one person can make to an important issue in society by taking action, in this case by simply registering as a stem cell & bone marrow donor.
One of the many talented young people that was photographed for the exhibition alongside stem cell & bone marrow donors, celebrities and Margot’s Consultant, Dr Phil Ancliff was young artist, Che Lingo.
Three years on, Che continues to make an impact on society. His music video ‘My Block’ was played at the #BLM protests and recently surpassed 1 million streams. Che performed ‘My Block’ live at the #FIFA21 world premiere and is the only artist ever to have the same song on both the NBA2K & FIFA game titles in the same year.
Earlier this month, to mark World Mental Health Day, Che performed on Channel 4’s #THEWHOLETRUTH and joined Arlo Parks, Kojey Radical & Jordan F Stephens to speak openly and honestly, sharing personal lessons and experiences with mental health and how it affects our communities.
We are pleased to share the news that Che’s new album, “THE WORST GENERATION” launches on Friday 23 October. Pre-order here.
More power to you, Che ! ?
