We've been overwhelmed with the response by singers and performers who have recorded "Sometimes A Friend",
A little while ago, after the world began to realise that "staying at home" was the best thing to do while the Covid-19 virus was having such a big effect, Stephen and I thought it would be a nice gesture to have our friends and colleagues record their own version of our award-winning song, and upload it to the Busy Izzy and Friends Facebook page.
It's our way of sharing the message that friends are so important, especially in this difficult time.
Our first singer to upload a video was Zara, followed by Skye Clementine, who sang on the original recording.
Since then, we've had so many beautiful versions that we feel quite humble to think that so many people would take the time and trouble to video themselves singing it and then uploading to the Facebook page.
If you're on Facebook you can see all the uploaded videos, as well as heaps more stuff here: https://www.facebook.com/BusyIzzyandFriends/
We hope you enjoy all the different vocal and instrumental versions, and you're welcome to add your own version to the collection by simply posting your video to the "Posts" section of the page.

We are proud and excited to announce that one of our Busy Izzy and Friends songs has won the 'Songs For Children' category in the Australian Songwriters Association National awards... with four others in the top ten.
This year, due to obvious reasons, the ASA awards were a virtual presentation and such a fabulous event it was. We have five songs in the top ten.
Congratulations to all the place getters and winners.
1. Who, What, When, Where, How and Why - This song is about Secret-agent Skye, who is a real private eye, and the lead character, Izzy's friend, featured in book four in the Busy Izzy and Friends series due for release in 2022.
Nix & Nax is the centre of Izzy's world. It's her little store underneath Izzy's home she shares with her parents. It's a special little place they sectioned off especially for their daughter.
Inside her store, is a book-nook with a big beautiful green comfortable chair where Izzy and her friends can sit and chat, have fun, make plans and share stories. Izzy's friends often come here if they find themselves with a problem too. Izzy is always there to help. She is kind and generous and wants her friends to be happy and feel confident.
Inside, there is storeroom, full of hidden surprises, which you can find out about in her books...
