Buskers discover space to perform

MUSIC is good for the soul.

That was the message at yesterday's Busk Off, which brought about 100 children together in Warwick yesterday to show off what they could do.

Organised by headspace as part of Mental Health Week, the Busk Off let school pupils flock to Andersen's Carpets warehouse after class for a sausage sizzle and a sing-along.

Despite early jitters there were some brave solo, acapella performances, solid band acts and even a bit of beat boxing.

“This is a supportive environment for people to get up and express themselves,” headspace's Mark Goddard said.

“Singing, dancing and music, it's all good for the soul. So get singing in the bathroom and express yourself, it's good for you.”

Mr Goddard said Mental Health Week was about community awareness and he thought the talent show would be the perfect way to make sure young people not only came along, but also got involved as well.
