Join the Liverpool iSing Virtual Choir!
Our friends at Resonate Music Hub have created the iSing virtual choir for primary aged children across the city. All you have to do is take a small video / audio recording of yourself alone or with your family singing along to the song "In My Liverpool Home". A video of the song and its lyrics are posted below along with a short video explaining what to do. Parents please send the short video to IMLHResonate@gmail.com by Wednesday 29th April (please include the school's name in your entry). It would be great to see many of our St Cleopas children in the final video! Have fun and get singing!!
Please watch the instructional video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=An7wihZEQlo
The lyrics and the song can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cA4m9pd9mls&t=18s
