Kelly from Beautiful You UK was one of the key organisers in pulling together the volunteers for the recordings and she described how pleased she was at the success of the videos. 

It was something that residents and people with dementia could really engage with.

“We came up with a way in which we could still interact with them safely, and so we decided that we would go with the singing,” Kelly continued. 

One of the volunteers who was gathered a lot of praise on social media for her song was primary school teacher Michaela Davies.

The video of her singing for residents received thousands of views on Facebook.

I used to do a lot of singing a while ago but I don’t do a huge amount now, it has just been really nice to get back in to it and it was lovely to do.
