15 Dec Winton Pupils in Stormzy video
Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, Jr. (born 26 July 1993), better known by his stage name Stormzy, is an English grime and hip hop artist. He won Best Grime Act at the 2014 and 2015 MOBO Awards and was named as an artist to look out for in the BBC’s influential Sound of 2015 list. His most successful song to date is the BPI gold-selling “Shut Up”, which was initially released as a freestyle on YouTube. The track was then officially released and got to number eight on the UK Singles Chart after Stormzy launched a campaign to reach Christmas number one.
Early this month Stormzy recorded in a local housing estate and lots of Winton pupils (past and present) were involved.
‘Blinded By Your Grace, Pt.2 FT. MNEK’ is a remarkable modern-day gospel record, inspired by the MC’s faith and one that showcases another pristine example of his timeless storytelling. Harnessed by the incredible vocals of British singer-songwriter, MNEK, ‘Blinded By Your Grace Pt.2’ is the third official single to be taken from Stormzy’s record-breaking debut studio album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ which has surpassed 230 million streams to date and sold over 225,000 copies in the UK (OCC).
