A CREATIVE choir has shown its gratitude to the NHS and key workers by singing a cover song to spread happiness during these difficult times.

Harwich Sing NexGen, which is made up of young people from Harwich Sing Tendring Voices aged between 12 and 21, have come together virtually to perform for key workers.

Clare Leach, the founder of Harwich Sing, said trying to stay happy and connected to friends and loved ones during lockdown is a challenge.

The 42-year-old, of Lodge Road, Little Oakley, said weekly choir classes are sent out to children and adults to keep the fun of singing alive.

She added: “The NHS and key workers are all so busy doing their very best for our community and society, we are all so grateful to them.

“To sing, record and put a film of us performing in lockdown together was a small way to show our appreciation and gratitude.”

“Singing for key workers and the NHS is a privilege and we thank them all wholeheartedly.”

“We hope our recording spreads a bit of happiness to all.”

The Harwich Sing NexGen choir performed Jess Glynne’s I’ll Be There and can be viewed by visiting bit.ly/3c4kCAZ.
