Acclaimed British band, Rudimental have produced a multi-cultural sickle cell disease awareness charity song that will be showcased at the Earl’s Court Film Festival 2020.

“Higher” was written by the Sickle Plus team, who are based in Westminster and Earl’s Court, and has been created to raise awareness and to break stigma that surrounds this medical condition.

Sickle cell disease affects Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Asian, African and Caribbean populations. 1 in 500 Caucasians has that condition, and the first Jewish Israeli family with the condition was registered in 2000.

Funds raised will go towards further projects in these areas.
