A TALENTED teenage singer has released a song which she wrote during lockdown in an attempt to reach out to people and help them with their mental health.
Rutland singer Grace Arnold, released her song ‘And We…’, last month, with the official music video clocking up over 2,000 views.
The song was written back in 2021, during the first Covid-19 lockdown, and expresses the way the 17-year-old felt during those “low and distant,” times.
“I wrote this song to show people that sometimes we need each other to grow and lift ourselves up when we can’t handle the world as it comes,” she said.
“Throughout Covid, I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been feeling low at times. People have been distant and times have been tough, stuck in environments which some have never witnessed before.
“Even now times have got a little bit better physically, people are still struggling with their mental health,” she added.
“I’d be so happy if people could relate to my message and it helps people who are struggling with life at the moment.”
Grace, who lives in South Luffenham, cites Adele and Ed Sheeran as her singing idols.
The video was filmed in Bristol, with comments praising its “poignant message”.
“I know this is only one song with messages you can take in your own way, but I really hope that anyone who’s struggling with feeling lost or stuck in situations can show themselves that they are worth it and worth fighting for,” said Grace.
“Thank you so much Ash Subramanian and Rupert Ward-Lewis for helping me send this message to people who need to hear it.”
