Some of the West End's leading Irish names, along with Irish Youth Musical Theatre, have joined together for a recording of 'You'll Never Walk Alone’ from the musical 'Carousel'.

The recording of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic has been released ahead of tonight's #ShineYourLight initiative.

The actors describe the song's message as "wildly apt", adding "that with hopeful hearts, we’re never alone in these anxious times".

The video features some of the West End’s leading Irish names, including David Shannon (Come From Away), Brian Gilligan (The Lion King), Jessica Cervi (The Commitments), Shane O’Riordan (Les Misérables), Alison Arnopp (Hair), Faoileann Cunningham (Amelie The Musical), Emma Warren (Les Misérables), Chris McGuigan (The Phantom of the Opera), Raymond Walsh (Les Misérables), Andrew Linnie (The Commitments), Caroline Kay (The Clockmaker’s Daughter), Brigid Shine (Angela’s Ashes), Claire O’Leary (Les Misérables), Molly Lynch (The Light In The Piazza) and Oisin Nolan (Rags).

It also features young Irish actors in training Niamh Long, Sarah McFarlane, Gavin Ryan, Fionan O Carroll, Eimear Friel, Enya Loughlin, with signing by Abbie O’Neill.
