Mark “Hegsy” Hegarty – a humanitarian leader and vocalist of Hegsy and the Elements – has experienced a rebirth of purpose.
Having enjoyed decades in the entertainment world, a dark and desperate corner in his life initiated a realisation that his music could hold a greater purpose: to support those seeking self-worth and genuine self-empowered change. His Celtic/Americana-inspired songs, fused with his newfound passion of choral energy, has led him on a musical journey of discovery, working with an extraordinarily diverse range of choirs including Wales’ oldest traditional male voice choir, a Methodist community choir and the highly acclaimed Louise Ryan Vocal School.
Inspired by the reception they received, he is presently supporting a choral project led by The Matisko World Orphan Choir in Liberia and, a choir of 100 female voices from across the world supporting those who have suffered abuse to express and understand their experiences in a safe, creative and open environment.
Mark is unsure where this voyage will take him. What Mark does understand is his liberation from the trappings of ambition and ego. He is undertaking a journey of love, mutual cultural understanding, and respect.
A collaborator recently wrote: ‘[Mark’s] passion, and his love for people, is almost as great as his passion for music. Mark you are an incredible individual’.
