March 2020. In the middle of a worldwide lockdown I had an ambitious idea and reached out to “Doctor Who: LOCKDOWN” producer Emily Cook to help me make it a reality. Together we invited Doctor Who fans worldwide to sing in our online choir and become a part of a massive fan cover of Murray Gold’s The Long Song, the soundtrack from the Series 7 episode Rings of Akhaten. 300+ fans joined in and their isolated voices from all around the world came together in harmony!

May 2020 is Doctor Who month on this channel! I promised you a trilogy and after the previous weeks’ Doctor Who Theme and Majestic Tale (Of A Madman In A Box), this is the long awaited finale: The Long Song!
Featured on lead vocals is the amazing Jana Marie Gropp! You’ve already heard her before as the soprano at the end of my Shepherd’s Boy cover.
Also, after our The Shepherd’s Boy and Doomsday collaborations, the brilliant Sarah Bergé returns once more as the solo violinist for The Long Song!
