Mel Moon came up with the idea for the national sing a long to help people connect with each other through music.

She announced her plan on a live video on her own facebook page last night and already the response has been overwhelming to the plan to sing the classic song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life from the iconic film Monty Python.

Burnley born Mel, who now lives in Padiham, said: "I know everyone is a bit depressed and fed up and mental health has taken a dip so I have come up with the idea of a sing a long to just let everyone forget everything that is happening, just for a few minutes."

Comedienne Mel Moon hopes to get 1,000 involved in her live national sing a long event tomorrow night.

A stand up artiste, Mel hopes to get at least 1,000 people on board with the sing a long which will take place at 8-30pm.

She added: "I know everyone wants to get back to normal but that is going to take a while so I am inviting people to get a glass of wine in their hand and join me live from their own living rooms.

"Let's all have a real giggle together."

During the lockdown Mel, who has three sons, has been making people laugh with a series of parody sketches and songs lambasting everything from Donald Trump and Boris Johnson to social distancing and Mary Poppins.
