IDMC Gospel Choir supports World Mental Health Day with ‘If I Can Help Somebody’

This month, Still I Rise Mental Health Services has teamed up with the multi-award-winning IDMC Gospel Choir and Touch of Grace Choir in Grenada, to remake a Mahalia Jackson Gospel Classic, ‘If I Can Help Somebody’ which will premiere on World Mental Health Day, the 10th October this year.

This Campaign is aimed towards shedding a light and bringing awareness to the stigma in the ethnic and Christian communities worldwide, about opening up and addressing Mental Health issues. IDMC stated, “We hope this will allow conversations and actions to begin, for forward movement to heal, and offer better opportunities to improve the wellbeing of our communities at large.”

They continued, “It is no coincidence that World Mental Health Day falls within the same month the world acknowledges Black History. A people while offering so many great contributions to society, have suffered for hundreds of years physically, mentally, socially and economically. So we take this opportunity to present to you this offering through song, and thank you for helping us spread the word across the globe.”

‘Help SomeBody’ is a classic gospel song, made famous by the late great Mahalia Jackson. This song has been sung by generations of Gospel and Christian artists, but it has a complete re-arrangement by IDMC Gospel Soul Choir’s founder and director John Fisher. The song is being used on this occasion to help and support World Mental Health Day with a very strong message that we all can do our little bit to make everyone’s life a little bit better, especially those suffering with some kind of mental health.

Please sit back and enjoy (video above) the power and excellence of John Fisher and the awesome IDMC Gospel Soul Choir, featuring the Touch Of Grace Gospel Choir from Grenada.
