|Watch the special video in collaboration with Alexandra Burke, the London Concert Orchestra and NHS Choir, released today (23rd May 2020) which gives thanks to the incredible work of the NHS key workers.
Their rousing and emotional cover of Olive’s 1997 classic “You’re Not Alone”, with it’s poignant, hopeful lyrics and combined with a purely symphonic arrangement, encapsulates what is currently a testing time for us all.
This month, Ministry of Sound Classical, a 50-piece orchestral show, with the London Concert Orchestra was due to perform at the Royal Albert Hall by arrangement with Coalition Agency and promoters Raymond Gubbay Limited.
As these epic landmark performances for this show was forced to cancel due to COVID-19, it was collectively decided by the performers to create a video to show appreciation and say “thank you” to key workers, specifically our incredible NHS here in the UK.
Alexandra Burke is a supporter of the “NHS Charities Together”, and was due to perform as a very special guest at Ministry of Sound Classical at the Royal Albert Hall, so she was the perfect choice of vocalist for this very special project. The video includes the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir, having been invited to perform on the track by Alexandra.
All musicians filmed and recorded their individual parts from the safety of their own homes. The music arrangement and guide audio track was prepared by the live shows sound engineer Phil Wright and orchestral arrangers Robin Hoffman and Tom Player.
The song was written by Taylor-Firth and Timothy Kellett, the video production is by Nick Jeykll and Paradise London.
