When you go out to clap the NHS tonight, think of Chloe. Her mum, Music Group member Sarah Williams writes, "When we went out for the clap for the NHS in the second week, I thought that something needed to change to make this feel more special as the weeks go on. I asked Chloe if she would like to sing."
Chloe said yes. "I thought as people can't see anyone singing live at the moment it might be nice for people to hear me sing" Chloe regularly goes to Adele Peter's Performing Arts School (APPAS) and loves to sing dance and act.
Her mum continued, "Throughout the week she practised two songs she knew, made invites to hand out to the street which we carefully posted and set up the microphone and music. And just before the clap she started singing! I think most if not all households (about 20) were out watching her. We also were showing the video live on Facebook as she sung and it was viewed by approximately 50 people as she sung mostly in the UK but one viewer was in Russia and another in Canada! It has since recieved 100 views!
On the village Facebook page a few street residents mentioned how much they loved listening which is when we heard that residents on the two neighbouring streets had heard too! Another neighbour popped a thank you card through the door the next day. We are trying to make sure the second song is topical to our current situation to help make everyone feel like they aren't alone and to cheer them up a little."
