A VIRTUAL choir have made their voices heard to the UK Government thanks to a music teacher who grew up in Dunfermline.

Kate Cameron helped produce a parody of the Les Miserables song One Day More with more than 100 singers representing the three million people who are believed to have missed out on financial support during lockdown.

The 29-year-old said: "The ExcludedUK community has been a saviour to me and putting this song and video together has given me a focus and a reason to get up in the morning.

"It’s been an amazing experience.”

ExcludedUK is a volunteer-run, non-profit community group created five months ago to represent the people, many of whom who work in the arts industry, left out of financial rescue support by the UK Government.

Kate, who went to Commercial Primary School and Dunfermline High, worked on the musical arrangement for the virtual choir and Melody Schroeder, an actress and scriptwriter from London, re-wrote the lyrics of the iconic song from the hit stage musical.

Melody added: "I was really struggling with my mental health too, and I am so grateful that I met Kate through the Facebook group and I’m so inspired by all the amazing people in the ExcludedUK choir and proud of what we have created."

The cover has been viewed nearly 10,000 times on YouTube and is part of the wider campaign for ExcludedUK's Facebook community group, which currently has more than 18,000 members.
