Valley Park School Virtual School Choir record song for NHS while in isolation
Students from Valley Park School who are part of the school choir have come together virtually, to record a rendition of Coldplay’s hit song ‘Fix You’ in tribute to the NHS, while in isolation.
The 16 students each recorded their part separately at home this week, before sending it to their music teacher, Ross Blyth, who joined the voices together to form the choir.
The recording was then set to a montage of video footage showing NHS staff, and released on social media.
Mr Blyth said: “When we are at school, we rehearse most lunchtimes; to me, the idea of the students not singing together again for months on end was unthinkable. When I sent the students the parts and asked them to record them, their response was remarkable. The final product is testament to their talent and dedication.”
Headteacher of Valley Park School, Margaret Hutchinson, said: “We, like so many others across the country, have been astounded by the tremendous efforts of the NHS and, when Ross suggested a Virtual Choir recording that could be dedicated to their amazing efforts, it was just our own small way of saying thank you. I am incredibly proud of our students’ achievement with this track and I’d also like to thank Ross, who has spent hours editing everything together.”
