Vicky McClure’s Dementia Choir is coming back with a new season that will show the process of creating a charity record.
Our Dementia Choir Sings Again, starring the actor from Line of Duty, premieres tonight at 21:00 BST on BBC One.
In the new season, McClure investigates problems in the healthcare system while producing the choir’s first single at Abbey Road.
Vicky McClure’s experience caring for her grandma motivated her to create the choir.
‘power of Music’
A quote from the Nottingham actress: “I couldn’t be prouder of every single person who makes Our Dementia Choir what it is.
An already impressive feat is made even more so by the fact that the recording was created in collaboration with people who are experiencing dementia: “To record a song that gives voice to people living with dementia at the most famous recording studio in the world is an astonishing achievement.”
The report, titled the Power of Music, explored the potential of music to promote Americans’ health and well-being; the choir’s single, What’s Your Story? served as an accompaniment to the report’s release in April.
When asked about the report’s findings, Grace Meadows, campaign director at Music for Dementia, one of the groups involved, remarked, “Music can have a transformative effect on people living with dementia and few things exhibit the power of music in action better than Our Dementia Choir.”
