DMU students to feature in Cookie charity gig

by Ollie Heppenstall

A DMU student is taking part in a charity concert being held at The Cookie later this month.


The concert, hosted by the DMU Acapella Society in support of mental health charity MIND, hosted by Dom Whiting and taking place on Thursday 23rd of March, features individual students and groups as well as a raffle including prizes from Lush, Flappers and Gentlemen St Martins and the Body Shop.

Both DMU’s Acapella Society and Gospel Choir are set to perform, as well as students Kelechi Stevenson and Kait Baker-Smith, in addition to Double Shot.

Kait, a first year English Language and Creative Writing student, said: “I got involved with the gig through information being posted on the music society’s Facebook group and contacting the hosts.

“The Acapella Society and the Gospel Choir are definitely worth looking out for. Kelechi as well, he’s got a fantastic voice and a lot of original music that’s been on show at Music Society open mic nights.”

She added: “If you’re looking to get into music at De Montfort, joining Music Society’s the best way, they upload videos of every open mic night and you’ll get to know the music scene in Leicester a lot better from being contacted by local promoters looking to book acts.”

Tickets are available from the Students’s Union website or on the door.
