Ings Got Talent

Just heard that the kids from East Hull Urban Arts are going into the studio to record their first song.

It’s a cover of a modern country ballad Concrete Angel, a song made famous by Martine McBride. It’s particularly moving as the song’s about child abuse, told from the perspective of a daughter regularly beaten by her drunken mother.

In this age of manufactured pop and transient reality z listers, it’s heartening to hear children with genuine talent getting a chance to reach a wider audience.

I defy anyone not to get moist-eyed listening to this clip I recorded last year – though I’m told they’re a hundred times better now.

Can’t wait to hear them.
