The students from the Vale School, in Tottenham, are the stars of the new video.
by Flora DrurySaturday, March 8, 2014 While there aren’t many secondary school students who have starred in their own music video, there are even fewer who have shared the screen with a Hollywood film star.
Naomie can be seen singing along in the video.
But students from The Vale School, which caters for young people with special educational needs and is based in Tottenham, have achived both - and the result has already had more than 1,000 hits on YouTube.
The youngsters, who range in age from 11 to 16, are the stars of Build It, featuring The Disfunkshunalz - otherwise known as deputy headteacher Tony Millard, music teacher Richard Tharp and Johanne James, a teacher with Haringey Music Service.
But Mr Millard - who also wrote the song - is keen to point out they are simply the platform from which the kids can showcase their talent.
“We want them to be appreciated as performers in their own rights,” he said. “What we are hoping is that the video shows it is all about them.
“This is not about us playing and them joining in, but it is about us joining in with them.”
But they aren’t the only people to appear in the music video: there is also a cameo appearance by Naomie Harris, who is not only the latest Miss Moneypenny in the latest James Bond blockbuster, but has also recently graced the screens as Nelson Mandela’s wife Winnie in Long Walk to Freedom.
And her appearance is thanks to the “Muswell Hill community”, of which Ms Harris’ family are part, according to Bonafide Studio’s Deanna Bogdanovic.
Mrs Bogdanoiv, who opened up her St James’s Lane studio to the kids, said: “So many people got involved. Established musicians gave their time for free. “It is almost 90 per cent down to the community her in Muswell Hill - and it was a blessing to be involved.”
