The new song for sign2sing 2016 has been launched with a fantastic video made by award-winning Deaf film maker Bim Ajadi.
Sign2sing is an annual fundraising event which raises money to help vulnerable deaf children and adults. Schools, businesses and choirs get together to learn a specially written song and accompanying signs.
The new video stars Deaf Pop Star Fletch with deaf and hearing children from schools in Hertfordshire.
The video for the song ‘Reach Out Your Hand’ was filmed at Garden Fields School in St Albans. Children from the school took part in the video alongside their friends from Heathlands, a special
school for Deaf children. The two schools regularly get together, sharing PE and music lessons.

Fletch has also filmed a series of tutorials to help participants learn the song and signs. Also featuring in the tutorials is Hollie Williams, who won the sign2sing competition to write lyrics for the 2016 song.
