2009 was the launch of Heart n Soul artist Lizzie Emeh’s ‘Loud and Proud’ album at The Southbank Centre. Lizzie tells us about the year below.

“2009, it was ground-breaking for Heart n Soul and for me because I was the 1st solo artist with a learning disability to release an album in the UK and it went straight onto iTunes! I’m so proud that I did it because we didn’t do it for any other reason than to get people recognised, to get disability recognised, that’s the drive behind my music. Since 2009 a lot of things have changed, I don’t know why we didn’t have acceptance in the first place but we have a lot more now.

The reason why we have a lot more acceptance is because of prestigious companies like Heart n Soul”

Lizzie Emeh is also one of our Big 30 contributors, listen to her interview and see her portrait here.
