Cecil creates anthem for knife crime project ‘Ceasefire’

Cecil (who this year supported Clean Bandit and Tom Odell on tour, headlined a BBC Introducing stage) is launching Project Ceasefire, whose MO is to keep those affected by knife crime, gun crime and youth violence connected to each other. Project Ceasefire is a place where all those affected by the current epidemic that plagues the country can connect  and support one another. Many of the families affected by knife crime have set up foundations in honour of those who they lost and do incredible things in their community and are fighting for changes in how youth crime is treated. Project Ceasefire will shine a light on the work they do and bring awareness to people in their communities. These foundations offer support and opportunities for young people in areas such as education and sports. Youth crime is something Cecil feels passionately about after hearing about a fatal stabbing in her area. She says “I was returning from the studio and my road was blocked due to an incident involving some young boys, which sadly resulted in someone being fatally stabbed and losing their life. The people with me commented ‘another stabbing’ almost as if it was normal. The fact that people are beginning to view this as normal struck a nerve in me and I wanted to do something to help towards the problem the country faces. There are far too many young lives being wasted so I hope my efforts contribute towards a better tomorrow and help prevent people from losing their lives to knife crime.”
