    So this was what the project was all about! 100 local people getting together to record a single that will hopefully raise some funds and awareness for an arts/music centre in the area. From the age of 7 to 77, local people came out to support the project, and if it is to be successful, we could really do with your help.

    You can view and listen to the Full length video that was created to accompany the release of the Heroes single by the Helensburgh Heroes Experience. The video features every single artist/performer who gave their time and talent to the recording of the song.
