The Foo Fighters’ Tune “Times Like These” was chosen by San Andrea School as the song to close off the somewhat different scholastic year. With all the licensing in place, work started on recording the cover professionally and also filming a music video at the school.
The main vocals are provided by Clara Calleja, who happens to be the daughter of The Maltese Tenor Joseph Calleja and Gwen Camilleri – who are joined by teachers, staff and students in other parts of the song.
“We have a resilient tight-knit community that worked hard and made sacrifices in the past months to try and make it through COVID-19. The story is not over yet, but we are grateful for every single being in our San Andrea School Community and it is through your love, commitment, understanding and cooperation that we are here today! You make us believe that together we WILL make it through. We wish to transmit this hope to whoever watches this video and we also hope it brings a meaningful closure to our school community,” the school said!
There is something which seem to magically happen in Malta whenever a community comes together, and this music video is the perfect example of just that.
Bring on the next Scholastic Year, and in the meantime, enjoy your Summer!
