Helping Hands - a song to say Thank You to our key-workers
Learn to sing and sign the song, even learn the ukulele chords to perform this for a key worker you know.
Here we are in 2021 and many of us are still in lockdown - Coronavirus has us shut in our homes to stay out of harm's way and keep the virus at bay. But there are millions of key workers who are out on the 'frontline'. This song is for the teachers, cleaners, refuse collectors, doctors, nurses, social workers, carers, shop assistants, delivery drivers, farmers, food producers and the countless other key workers who we rely on at this time.
Their jobs are so important - they have never seemed so important to us as they do now. Do you know someone who is a key worker? A friend? A member of your family? A neighbour? It would mean the world to them to hear you sing this song dedicated to them. This is also a great song to learn and sing at school (or home-school).
Included are all the materials you need to learn it - they are all free.
- You can learn the song easily with the teaching video with makaton signs
- You can sing along to the song - download the audio
- You can download the backing track and sing along to that
- You could even learn the ukulele part with my easy teaching video
I wrote this song to share with you, then I sent it to my friend and band member Tony Bryant from Sunny Studios in Hove (www.sunnystudiohove.co.uk). He has produced the track, played drums, percussion and keys, mixed and mastered the song for free.
We hope you and your children enjoy singing along, and we hope it becomes an anthem to our wonderful key workers!

“Hello, I'm Al. I started Go Kid Music in 2015 because I believe we need more great age-appropriate songs for children and their families. I used to be a Play Coordinator for the local authority, lecture at Brighton University and have trained in play, creative learning and child development. I studied music at Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003 and gained a distinction in Songwriting & Modern Composition. I have toured extensively and produce music and events for families. I teach singing and ukulele in schools where I try out all the songs in the club so you know they will go down a storm with your kids!"
