A music choir has created a special video tribute to keyworkers during the coronavirus lockdown and to one of its own.#
Jenny’s Rainbow Song by the Dereham-based JDT Music School’s Rockavox choir features members’ pictures and is a mash-up of tunes by Arthur Hamilton, Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg, Rihanna and Sia.
A spokesman said: “We’ve called it Jenny’s Rainbow Song, a dedication to our very own heroine Jenny, and a tribute to all the incredible keyworkers who continue to serve the UK with fearless compassion and professionalism.
“One of our long-standing members, Jenny, who is fighting her own Big C battle, listened to Cilla Black’s Sing a Rainbow and suggested we create something for RockavoX to sing.
“The song was completed and choir members quickly learned their tracks and submitted recordings within a week of starting it. A further week of mixing and piecing the video together, and here we are.”
