Britain’s Got Talent – Chloe Hickinbottom Singeth White Cliffs of Dover by Vera Lynn

Chloe Hickinbottom

There’ll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see.
There’ll be joy and laughter
And peace ever after,
Tomorrow
When the world is free,

During the first auditions for ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, a young 10 year old girl surprised everyone by singing the inspirational song, “(There’ll be bluebirds over) the White Cliffs of Dover”, made famous by Dame Vera Lynn.  Chloe Hickinbottom from Wolverhampton sang with visionary grace, fusing the historic past with her pure voice.

With words by Nat Burton, and music by Walter Kent, the recording of the song symbolized Britain’s stand against the Nazis during the darkest days of the war in 1942.

The ‘bluebird of happiness’ has deep roots in mythology that go back thousands of years. Symbolizing very positive sentiments the bluebird brings a feeling of hope.

Listen to Chloe Hickinbottom sing, whilst honouring the words and meaning of this song.  Click here if problem with the video.

Last year there was a renewed interest in Dame Vera Lynn’s music since it was the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War.  She topped the album chart with a greatest hits collection ‘We’ll Meet Again’.  At the age of  92, she became the oldest living artist to have a No 1 album.

This may be a talent contest, but whether Chloe wins or not, she holds within a precious gift, that I believe will only grow more beautiful.  Bravo Chloe!

With a Bluebird of Happiness,

Lady Sharon
Scribe of Camelot
