[p]The rainbow is such a powerful symbol of hope and that's why so many people have images of it in their homes and on buildings as we go through the Covid-19 crisis. I wrote a song called Rainbow of Light Anthem which tells the story of the spectrum of the rainbow, how it connects with the universe and earth, providing energy for many things that we use every day in our lives, like communications, agriculture and medical equipment. It was inspired by scientists such as the late Professor Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins and Dr Brian May at a science and music festival called Starmus. UNESCO adopted the song after International soprano Katerina Mina recorded it and performed it live for the first International Day of Light in Paris, which is held every year on May 16th.[/p][p]It is particularly poignant for me personally to help the NHS as they were so brilliant at helping care for my late husband David who had Motor Nerone Disease. This is such a horrible disease but David dealt with it with such positivity and hope. He was an inspiration to so many people and he would be proud of my efforts now to try and help our heroes at this challenging time for us all.[/p][p][url=https://soundcloud.com/zeplammy/rainbow-of-light-anthem-songwriter-linda-lamon-interview-with-jon-andrews-radio-woking]https://soundcloud.com/zeplammy/rainbow-of-light-anthem-songwriter-linda-lamon-interview-with-jon-andrews-radio-woking[/url][/p][p]Katerina has also had her own challenges to overcome as she was diagnosed with cancer during her formative years as a performing artist and I met this amazing soprano as she was recovering and sharing her beautiful voice with the world. [/p][p]For both of us, these life experiences have given us the strength and determination to cope with anything that life throws our way and to try and make a difference in the world, such as right now, through this Covid-19 crisis. [/p][p]The single has been released to help raise funds for NHS Charities Together, as it offers hope for the universe, humanity and our medical and research teams, with so many questions still unanswered. With the help of the rainbow, scientists can continue making new discoveries that can help produce cures and create a sustainable future for us all.
