Concert and Symposium

Human Values Concert

The Human Values Concert, a lively musical programme with performances from Vadé, De Montfort University Gospel Choir and Boilup Tropical (steel band). They all will be performing with one focus– the human values of Love, Peace, Right conduct, Truth and Non-violence. The concert aims to fill the airwaves with positive vibrations and uplift those who attend. Music is truly a medium that transcends the head and speaks to the heart.


Vadé is a five-piece vocal group aged between: 25-34 with a Gospel/Soul sound. They each have strong church backgrounds. They’re inspired by 90s artists such as Boyz II Men. The group consists of, Jermaine Sanderson, Philip Yeboah, Roy Crisp, Joseph Anti and Joshua Hammersley Jr. Vadé was initially an idea by Philip and JJ in 2013, when they met at a music concert with a vision to create a fresh new sound to a cappella music not only in the UK, but the rest of the world. Following their win on the Sky 1 entertainment show ‘Sing: Ultimate A Cappella’, we landed a record deal with Decca Records, along with releasing our debut single, Cry Your Heart Out – written by One Direction’s Niall Horan.

“Let the different faiths exist. Let them flourish and; Let the glory of God be sung In all the languages of the world And in a variety of tunes. Respect the differences between the faiths, And recognise them as valid, As long as they do not extinguish The flame of unity.” – Sathya Sai Baba
