Eastbourne music producers create ‘uplifiting’ You Tube video with churches across the UK

Two Eastbourne-based music producers have been key to making a Youtube video which was viewed more than two million times in its first week online and was featured on ITV’s Good Morning Britain and BBC news.

The UK Blessing, which brought together more than 65 UK churches, was compiled and mixed by Trevor Michael, a freelance recording engineer and producer based in Eastbourne.

Music producer Les Moir, also from Eastbourne, called his contacts to set up the recordings with Christian worship singers across the country to perform The Blessing, originally written by Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe, Chris Brown and Steve Furtick from Elevation Worship.
