Lorraine Bowen | Give My Love To Hull
GIVE MY LOVE TO HULL – music/lyrics by Lorraine Bowen video by Kate Sullivan
Lorraine fell in love with Hull after being invited to performing at Hull Pride. “From the art gallery to the chip shop, people were incredibly friendly.”
Lorraine was inspired to write this song after winning David Walliams’ Golden Buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent and being asked to perform in Hull. Lorraine found a boisterous city being regenerated with a great University student population, beautiful historic buildings, a unique past and interesting museums. Lorraine was inspired to write the song and she says ‘it almost wrote itself with a bit of a hand from me’!
Lorraine was delighted to discover that Hull is City of Culture in 2017 and hopes that her lyrics in Give My Love to Hull will be a fitting tribute to the city.
The ‘Give My Love to Hull’ video was produced, directed and edited by award winning film maker, Kate Sullivan, who thrives on creating lo-fi/hi-fi visuals with a terrific British sense of humour.
