Adwoa Dickson and the Amies Freedom Choir
Choir Director of the Amies Freedom Choir
Adwoa Dickson accepted the The Women of the Year Community Spirit Award, presented by Lorraine Kelly, for her work with Amies Freedom Choir. The unique choir aims to develop the musical and cultural awareness of young women who have survived trafficking, by exploring songs and musical styles from each others’ cultures and languages.
Adwoa Dickson said, “I am overjoyed that the women of the Amies Freedom Choir have won The Woman of the Year Community Spirit Award 2020. It pays great tribute to the resilience and determination of our participants who have overcome so many obstacles and despite facing such adversity, find the strength to build beautiful friendships by coming together to sing.”
