‘Blinded By Your Grace’

We are so impressed and moved by Year 8 Lilianna’s performance of ‘Blinded By Your Grace’, originally sung by Stormzy – here, she is supported by her brother, Year 10’s Benjamin, and Dad, Ray, who said: “Lilianna has really enjoyed her singing lessons with Mrs Weston and has grown in confidence.”

Lilianna recorded the song in dedication to her Godmother, Noreen Walsh, who sadly died a few weeks ago.

Mrs Kent, Director of Music, adds:

“In times of difficulty, music is a balm; we all turn to a particular song or symphony when we need to escape, heal or reinvigorate. Lilianna and her family totally understand the wellbeing that comes from expressing the inexpressible through music, and I am proud to have them in our Music Department and community.

“We’re all going to need the cathartic power of shared experience and music in the coming months; hopefully, we will be able to take some hope and happiness from this beautiful performance.”
