Actors from the stage and screen have been recording motivational messages for performing arts students.
Former Barking and Dagenham College students Shaun Escoffery sang to youngsters who, like the R&B singer, are currently at home under lockdown.
Shaun sings from one of his most popular songs, Days Like This and says: “It’s a hard time at the moment and I just wanted to send you guys some love and encouragement.”
Shaun studied performing arts at the college in the 1990s before going on to find fame with his first major release Space Rider.
He is now on BBC Radio 2’s A List with his first single for Universal entitled River from his new album Strong Enough.
