Bath singer Jess Clayton single to raise awareness of human trafficking
A Bath singer has released a single to raise awareness of human trafficking.
Jess Clayton, who studied commercial music at Bath Spa University, is releasing her single Voice for the Voiceless to spread awareness of the global problem of human trafficking and also to support Bath children's charity the Trauma Recovery Centre (TRC).
She performed it in Bath as part of National Anti Slavery Day, held by charity Anti-Slavery International last week.
Jess was inspired to get involved after working with the TRC in Lower Bristol Road, which offers free play therapy and counselling for children from around the country who are facing trauma and crisis.

Through this she met Susie, who by the age of 20 had already had three children. She had been sold by her father into slavery at 13, and finally managed to escape aged 19.
Jess said: "I recorded my single Voice for the Voiceless to raise awareness of human trafficking.
"The song is inspired by my involvement working with survivors of human trafficking like Susie."
All money raised through the single will be donated to the TRC's Treehouse Project, which provides an aftercare service in the UK for survivors of human trafficking.
Jess added: "My experiences have left me with a particularly strong determination to bring hope and change into the world through my music."
There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world, and Anti-Slavery International works to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world.
