A GROUP of pupils studying at Featherstone High School in Southall have banded together under the name Saviour to record and release a music video on YouTube.

The video, Draw a Line, was created at a club run by the school’s Social Inclusion Department and addresses the surge in knife crime across London.

“How can this pain be glamourised?” Ben Watson, 14, asks in the song’s catchy chorus.

Speaking in a school assembly previewing Draw a Line, he explained: “A lot of current rap music promotes gangs, drugs, murder and sexual assault.

"We wanted to create a music video that would be pro-social and inventive, rather than anti-social and unoriginal.”

Adrian Clarke, 14, who plays a knife attacker in the video, wanted to show how young perpetrators of knife crime are themselves groomed and victimised by criminal gangs.

Head teacher Gerry Wadwa said: “Our whole community is incredibly proud of the deep desire of these Featherstone students to challenge behaviours which continue to have such tragic consequences.”

Draw a Line by Saviour is available to watch on YouTube.
