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.
Stay safe and well - Stephen Kiely.

Children are influenced by their parents, guardians, older siblings and sometimes their friends. They all become role models, whether they are a good or a bad influence.
When children see their parents, other adults and older children showing respect for each other they usually do the same with their siblings and friends.
Busy Izzy is a wonderful role model for all children and the Busy Izzy world is a great tool for parents and guardians.
With technology becoming more commonly used among children, it is crucial to utilise different media platforms and mediums in a positive light to change the way children learn.
Although research clearly demonstrates that well-designed, age-appropriate, educational television can be beneficial to children of preschool age, studies on infants and toddlers suggest that these young children may better understand and learn from books and real-life experiences than they do from videos.
Children love to learn new and exciting things. This is why it is important to not only entertain at a kid’s party, but make them aware of the importance of music, and movement, fun, healthy living, friendship, caring and loyalty.
