Sheila Richards wrote new lyrics to the tune “you are my sunshine” to honor the essential workers and the people of Ladysmith BC for sticking together. “I thought, I’ll sit down and write a song about Ladysmith”, says Richards. “It’s a great place to live, and the first responders are really good. I want to show how much we appreciate them”.
The video was filmed by Sheila and her son Dean who owns MyLadysmith.com
