Ginger “Back in early 2017, when recording ‘Ghost In The Tanglewood’, with Dave Draper and John Kettle in Wigan, I was lucky enough to meet the students of the Hope School. They made me feel so welcome that I asked them if they’d sing on the song ‘Paying It Forward’. They kindly accepted my request and their happiness is captured on the recording forever. I had no hesitation in wanting to recreate the exact setting of that original meeting for the video, and when asked, they again happily agreed to take part. I’m very honoured that we have now have the experience captured on video.”
