Isle of Wight singer Harriet Back (founding member of Company B UK) has formed a new Facebook Page – Sing While You Are In – designed to entertain and engage young Islanders during the Coronavirus lock down.

Harriet says,

“I have a younger brother and I know how difficult it is to keep them entertained all day long (I don’t know how teachers do it!).

“It was while watching a Disney film with my brother and singing along, that I thought of this idea!”

How it works
Each week there will be a different Disney or Musical theme.

Every Monday and Wednesday, Harriet uploads a video to the Facebook Page of her singing a song from the film.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays she post tutorials on different things, maybe how to dress up as the characters, a short dance or other related arts and crafts.

Take part on Fridays
Then on Friday, she does a Facebook Live where the kids (and/or Disney lovers) can join in, dress up and sing along!

Harriet explains,

“Over the weekend, I post hints to next week’s theme.

“It gives the adults a little rest, time to make those important phone calls perhaps, or just to sit back and relax.”

If you’d like to find out more or take part yourselves, head over to the Sing While You Are In Facebook Group.
