Glasgow singer Darius Campbell made a special appearance on stage at Sense Scotland’s annual Christmas Concert today.
The former Pop Idol finalist was given a tour of TouchBase Glasgow by Lead Artist David McCluskey before taking to the stage to join artists supported by Sense Scotland. Darius had the crowd singing, dancing and clapping along as he performed three Christmas numbers.
He said: “Music is so important to us. Sense Scotland does amazing work – I love the way you come together as a community and look after each other.”
Afterwards he posed for pictures and met with those supported by Sense Scotland.
The 38-year-old has been busy for the past few years appearing in West End shows, producing films and working with the UN’s sustainable development goals to bring water to the areas which need it most.
Many disabled children, young people and adults have been involved with Sense Scotland’s musical activities, allowing them to communicate, be creative and expressive. The Christmas Concert is an annual event where they can showcase their talent to staff, families and the general public.
“It is amazing how we can use music to stimulate the senses,” added Darius, “sound and the vibrations can bring a smile to someone’s face. It can be a simple joy, but such a profound one. My uncle Ali is disabled and, from a young age, I have been in awe of the support he’s been given by the services he uses. Good care can really transform lives and I can that’s what Sense Scotland does here. What a great atmosphere and great day.”
