Sophie Tinger, a 10-year-old girl from Hertfordshire raised the spirits of NHS staff by singing ‘We’ll Meet Again’. She dedicated Vera Lynn’s song to the NHS staff for their work during this coronavirus pandemic.
Sophie’s cousin Andrew Tenzer shared the video of her on Twitter. In the video, Sophie said: “Hi everybody, I hate this isolation and quarantine thing so I am gonna cheer you up by doing a nice song called ‘We will meet again’ by Vera lynn.”
She continued: “Anyone who is watching from NHS I just wants to say I really appreciate your work. Thank you so much for looking after us.”
Vera Lynn’s song achieved the highest ranking on iTunes after the Queen mentioned the song during her address. After the Queen address, it reached number 22 in the UK chart.
Sophie first decided to sing a song for elderly people at care homes but after the lock down she decided to perform it to appreciate the work of NHS. She thanked them for their efforts to save the lives of many in the current pandemic situation around the globe.
The little girl said: “This song means a lot to me and I wanted to meet my family and friends again but I don’t know how.” She said that the hospital staff is so brave as they checked the coronavirus patients on a daily basis.
“They are amazing because they not only take care of the sick people but they also saves their lives. We are staying at home and they are going to hospital where they could catch virus easily,” she added.
