Over the Summer of 2020 children across Tower Hamlets were invited to learn four songs ready for a Singing day on Friday 19 June. Students, families and teachers sung from wherever they were – at school or at home – united with other children across the borough.
The four selected songs were particularly resonant to the current times: Vera Lynn’s We’ll Meet Again has gained newfound meaning during the pandemic and this year’s VE Day celebrations; Over the Rainbow, has become a powerful message of hope and gratitude; Happy contributed a bit of fun and positivity; and we finished off with Bring me Sunshine, the anthem for Make Music Day – an international celebration of music that took place on 21 June – connecting us with people all over the world.
