In 2008, I had the great pleasure and honor to interview Mr. Mullan for Keeper Skool. He was the author of "Gordon Banks: A Hero Who Could Fly."
With his kind permission, here is a description of a recent initiative.
President Obama presents Archbishop Desmond Tutu
with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
This is a concept I have developed with the permission of Archbishop Tutu arising out of the Christmas Truce Project I am developing in Flanders.
The footage of the choir singing 'Our Children' was taken on my Nokia N95 mobile phone on December 4 at Southwell Minster, Nottinghamshire, at the launch of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Peace Choirs. It is hoped the initiative will spread throughout several counties in the next two to three years. Each choir will have the privilege and responsibility of representing and spreading the message of Justice, Peace, Reconciliation and Healing which have characterised the life and commitment of Archbishop and Mrs Tutu. Proceeds from concerts held by the Peace Choirs will be sent to South Africa to help support the work of Archbishop Tutu.
I hope you enjoy the recording. I must admit, I am very impressed by the quality of the sound recording, bearing in mind this was shot on a Nokia mobile phone. I would be grateful if you could pass on this link to people who might be interested.
