Seeking Pakistani Christians for a UK Christian band video...

See Ooberfuse live at our free 10th March 2012 Peace Concert at Trafalgar Square!

We have had a request for London based Pakistani Christians who are free on Monday to be extras for a video for Catholic band Ooberfuse.  The band will be appearing at our 10th March protest and have recorded a track that will remember slain Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti.

Their song 'Blood cries out' which opens with Shahbaz Bhatti's voice where he says 'I know the meaning of (the) cross.'

Having heard the song we are definite in our assumption that the song will have great success and serves the memory of Shahbaz Bhatti well.  If you are interested please make contact as soon as possible.

Cherrie Anderson form Ooberfuse commented;

"We wrote the song inspired by Shahbaz Bhatti's life and how the blood of Jesus cries out for peace, mercy and love (Hebrews 12:24)".

Ooberfuse is a London based electro pop band composed of hal, cherrie, and paul. They bring together the very best of Western and Eastern musical traditions. The band has been described as ‘a multi-cultural dark wave lush pop rock band’.[1] They are all about fusing fresh Western melodies with cool Eastern harmonies! 

They wrote and performed the Youth Anthem, Heart’s Cry, for the Papal Visit to the UK in 2010. In August 2011 the band was selected from hundreds of artists from around the world to perform 2 songs before the Pope and 2 million young people gathered in Madrid for the 2011 World Youth Day. In the national band-search competition 'Live and Unsigned' they were acclaimed the most original band and one of the best unsigned live musical acts in the UK from over 30,000 other aspiring artists.

The band is made out of frontwoman Cherrie Anderson (Vocalist), Paul Francis Kelly (Vocalist, guitarist) and Hal St. John (Backing vocals, synths, guitar and kulintang). Cherrie started singing at the age of 7, appeared on Philippine television and performed in front of capacity audiences. Hal is a singer / song-writer who has performed his own material in London venues and festivals. Hal wrote and performed the Big Issue's song "From a Sheltered Flame" to capture musically the experience of homelessness on London's streets. Paul, from Dublin, moved to London a few years ago and has been the frontman in a band based in StockholmSweden. He has played many gigs / tours and recorded in studios both in UK and also Scandinavia.
Their first album Still Love My Enemies was chosen by Cross Rhythms, one of UK’s biggest Christian radio stations, as one of Top 20 Albums of 2011![2] They are currently working on their second album.
