Two sisters from Sheringham have taken part in The Blessing (Kids) – a virtual choir of children from all over the UK.

The Blessing was first performed in the USA and was soon followed by a UK version, where singers from 65 churches across Britain contributed on-line from their homes during lockdown. The Allstars Kids Club then seized upon the opportunity to perform the same song using contributions from hundreds of children from around the world.

Sheringham mum Vicki Harrison, part of the town’s Lighthouse Community Church, heard about the venture and applied for two of her children, Immi and Bella, to take part.

Vicki said: “The girls listened to the backing music on a tablet through headphones and I recorded them on my iPhone, so no special equipment was required. It was a very simple process, but we had no idea if they would use the clip or not. I am not aware of any other local children taking part.

“Immi has been singing with our church band for about a year and Bella has been in the school choir since she was a toddler. They both love to sing and when I saw the advert for children singers they jumped at the opportunity.”

 The song was released on You Tube on Sunday, May 10, and has been well received nationally.

 Immi said: “It was a really good to do our bit to help and encourage other people.”

Bella added: “It was a really fun music session – we didn’t even need any special equipment.”
