Tomorrow's Another Day (Brighter Day) - a song for our times

"Tomorrow's Another Day" is a song for our times. I wrote it in the hope that it may provide some comfort during this challenging period (of Coronavirus).

It is a song that is close to my heart as I turned 47 this year (2020) and am the same age at which my mother died of cancer - exactly 30 years ago. It has made me mindful of how precious life is. I have felt quite motivated to try to create something that I hope would have made my mother (and my sister, fantastic little niece and nephew and father - who now lives in a care home) proud.

I composed the song initially to tie in with Mental Health Awareness Week (18-24 May 2020). The song includes lyrics about 'kindness' (the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week in 2020) and reaching out to others.

It was also inspired by the words of Sir Captain Tom Moore: “Tomorrow is a good day” and the Queen in her VE Day speech: “Never give up, never despair”.

The song was first played by BBC Director General, Tony Hall, on his all staff ‘Stay Connected’ call on Wednesday 20 May. Since then it has been played on four local radio stations: BBC Radio London, BBC Radio Surrey/Sussex, BBC Radio Kent and BBC Radio Essex.

The song is on YouTube. It is also released to Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and many more music platforms.  

If you like the song, please share it with others via the YouTube link.

If you have ideas for other platforms the song should be featured on, for instance: TV, documentaries, adverts, podcasts, musicals, blogs, etc - please get in touch with me:- ursula.smyth@bbc.co.uk

I would be most happy for the song to be featured more widely (and across the globe).

Proceeds from the song are to go to charity. Donations will be welcomed by: Mind, The Samaritans, OR a mental health charity of your choice - to help their good work to continue. Also by cancer charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK. Thank you for reading and sharing.
