This song is my complete and utter obsession right now. I first heard it sun by an auditionee on America’s Got Talent (watch it here), I then looked up the lyrics to find out who actually sang it.

Turns out the song is Grammy nominated (and I can see why!) and is sung by Andra Day. The accompanying music video is beautiful, believably touching. The song is an anthem, a fighter’s anthem that focuses on the struggle to keep going, to keep rising.

Have a watch and let me know what you think!

Here’s to the power of sport and self-belief. To those who get up in the morning to go running. To those who take on new challenges, fight prejudice or conquer their fears. This is for every victory.

On Friday 1 July 2016, in London, I witnessed and was part of one of the most incredible events I have ever seen.

The day marked 100 years since the start of the Battle of the Somme – the bloodiest battle in British military history with 19,240 men dying on the first day alone.

To mark the Somme centenary, 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, commissioned Turner-prize winning artist Jeremy Deller to create a modern memorial to commemorate the occasion. In collaboration with the National Theatre’s director, Rufus Norris, some 1400 volunteers (men aged 16-52) took part in the UK-wide ‘we’re here because we’re here’ event. They volunteers marched across the UK dressed as WWI soldiers in historically accurate uniforms. They represented the 15 regiments that saw loss of life that day.
