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.

ABC Alphabet Song
It's very exciting to see our little song get over 12 thousand views on YOUTUBE in a matter of days.
The song is a fun and energetic one about the importance of the alphabet.
"My 26 BFFs, are the letters of the alphabet.
Letter by letter, getting alphabetter with my 26 BFFs."
