We’ve always known Little Mix were incredibly inspirational, but their single ‘Salute’ is becoming an empowerment anthem for females across the world. Not only was it used in the Olympics ‘Road to Rio’ advert, but this weekend it was performed in a flashmob at Liverpool Airport.
The flashmob took place to raise awareness of the issues of forced marriage and female genital mutilation as well as paying tribute to Shafilea, who was brutally murdered by her own parents in an ‘honour’ killing.
The flash mob was organised by Liverpool-based charity Savera UK, who operate across the UK providing services to individuals from Black Minority Ethnic communities who are at risk of domestic abuse.
The reason the flashmob took place in Liverpool Airport was to capture as wide an audience as possible with people of all nationalities and cultures flying out from Liverpool.
Passengers who were in the check-in queue were offered free neck pillows along with other freebies which promoted the charity.
We are so proud of Little Mix for creating such an empowering song to be used for important and influential messages and we’re really proud of Savera for organising this flashmob and raising awareness on such crucial issues.
