In our previous post, we ended with a promise that we’ll meet again some sunny day. Whilst that day may still be a while away for public meetings, we are bringing you the next best thing to bring cheer to your Easter Sunday – another live performance to be streamed on our Facebook page!
On Sunday 12th April, lead Darling Katie will be hosting a special broadcast to lift the spirits of anyone who tunes in from 4.00pm, with a song or few from Katie herself and performances from the other members of The D-Day Darlings too.
Following on our live Mother’s Day concert – which you can watch again here – we will again be reading out some of the wonderful emails sent in by our followers who would like to pass on special messages and dedications to loved ones they are currently unable to visit. This time, we will also be making surprise landline phone calls to a select few who don’t have access to the internet to lift their spirits and give them the opportunity for a live Q&A.
As well as all this, Darling Katie will be sharing an exclusive insight into her inspiration behind writing the original songs for the Darlings and our next-generation wartime group, The D-Day Juniors.
This live broadcast seeks to bring smiles to the nation who we know must be finding these times of isolation and lockdown difficult. There are brighter times ahead but until then, we’ll be doing all we can to rally the troops and spread a little cheer through our music which we know will unite us all.
We would like to add that our thoughts turn to those who need extra support during these extraordinary times and, as proud ambassadors of the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity, we kindly urge our followers to spare a moment to learn more about the ‘Keep Smiling Through’ Appeal and please help where you can to help them continue providing support to families and their very young children with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments.
Keep smiling and keep following us over the coming weeks for more exciting updates – let’s get through this together!
