Watch as NHS staff perform amazing "This is me" cover from the Greatest Showman
A choir bringing together staff at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) and Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) has made its first video which is a big hit on social media.
The Choir was only formed after staff posted comments on Facebook about the tremendous efforts by staff to make it into work or stay in work during the Beast from the East.
A choir was mentioned and the hospital chaplain, Jim Meighan, took up the challenge to bring to together 100 staff members of all ages to form the new QEUH & RHC Choir.
They have been practicing for weeks to produce their first video of the song ‘This is Me’ from ‘The Greatest Showman’.
Jim said: “The idea of forming a choir was one I had been thinking of for some time.
“When the idea was posted on the QEUH staff Facebook page, I didn’t expect such a positive response but we had staff from all disciplines wanting to join.
“We decided to record ‘This is Me’ to support Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity with their funding raising efforts and every rehearsal was a joy, every mistake was a learning curve and everyone put in the time and dedication to make sure it was a roaring success.
“Over the next few months, we will be organising two performances at the QEUH and RHC and will start to pull the music and choir together for a number of further engagements, including an invite to sing in the City Chambers in December.
We have all been blessed by being part of this journey and hopefully it will inspire similar projects and perhaps even other NHS choirs. If so, I can guarantee they will be a part of something very precious.”
