STU­DENTS from dif­fer­ent schools in the UK have been asked to sing a song called With Her Head Tucked Un­der­neath Her Arm.

We were sup­posed to sing at the Tower of Lon­don this year, but un­for­tu­nately that had to be can­celled be­cause of the coro­n­avirus. I felt re­ally up­set and so did ev­ery­one else, but our frowns were turned around when the amaz­ing staff from Wa­ter City Mu­sic had an ex­tra­or­di­nary idea… They changed the fes­ti­val into a vir­tual con­cert. This was a spectacula­r idea! I was so ex­cited that I still had the chance to sing and show my tal­ent.

Wa­ter City Mu­sic helps ev­ery­one to be to­gether, even when we are apart. This vir­tual fes­ti­val has not just given us the op­por­tu­nity to sing, it has taught us a les­son, which is to never hide your tal­ent – and that we all have beau­ti­ful voices.

I would like to thank Robert Cole for help­ing Wa­ter City Mu­sic with some pub­lic­ity, Michael Bochmann for ar­rang­ing this won­der­ful project and, best of all, my mum for record­ing me singing this lovely song.
