Mountbatten Choir – ‘One Day Soon’ - A song of hope for the national day of reflection

Mountbatten Community Choir has released a song to mark one year since the UK went into lockdown on 23 March 2020 at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. The song has been written by members of a group of young adults with life-limiting conditions who gathered weekly at Mountbatten Isle of Wight before lockdown.
