A musical family from Somerset have created a strong contender for the Christmas Number One spot with a song marking all of the lives lost in the UK during the pandemic.
Released under the artist banner ‘Shine A Light To Fight’, the single features 14-year-old daughter Ciara Millington on main vocals accompanied by a choir and orchestra from Somerset who filmed their performances at home during the November lockdown. The images were contributed by members of ‘Shine A Light To Fight Coronavirus’, one of the largest Facebook Covid Support Groups.
Producer Jeremy Millington of music duo The Portraits said:
It’s all taken off! Our song pays tribute to all the families suffering loss this Christmas. We wanted to give a face to the statistics we’ve been hearing all year, and hopefully provide a message of comfort: our loved ones are always with us despite all the pain. We hoped it might lift people up just a little at a dark time.
