Newly crowned Miss World Toni-Ann Singh is using her voice for charity.
Just one week after winning the global title, Jamaican Toni-Ann Singh has become the first Miss World to record a song to raise funds for Beauty With A Purpose projects across the world.
On Saturday Singh premiered her recording of Whitney Houston’s classic hit “I Have Nothing.” An accompanying video for the track was also released via the Miss World YouTube channel.
The track was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, one of the oldest recording studios in the world, established in November 1931.
“I had a wonderful time on stage. I never thought I would get to sing on the Miss World stage. I had a wonderful experience singing I Have Nothing and we talked about it and we thought wouldn’t it be wonderful to record it. This week we went to the best recording studio in the world, Abbey Road, the first recording studio in the world… can you imagine, me. We recorded I Have Nothing and want to give it back as a gift. We’re giving it to Beauty With a Purpose and every penny that is made from this recording, everything that is donated. We are not charging to release it. We’re just asking that if you could open your hearts and donate anything at all, all the money will go to all the projects all across the world to all my sisters and all their Beauty With A Purpose projects. I believe that this is something that will last for a very long time, so I hope that you will support,” Singh said.
Donations to support all the projects submitted by the 110 contestants in this year’s pageant can be made via a link provided on the pageant’s official Youtube channel
