Thao has shared a cover of Björk‘s ‘Human Behaviour’ for Mental Health Awareness Week – watch her rendition below.The singer-songwriter (real name Thao Nguyen) has teamed up with non-profit organisation Sounds Of Saving (SoS) to deliver a new rendition of Björk’s 1993 track, the lead single from the Icelandic singer’s debut studio album, ‘Debut’.“I chose Bjork’s ‘Human Behaviour’ because to me it marks a renewal and a revival of my own interest in music, in my own recommitment to the joy of music,” Thao said of her cover (via Stereogum).“Growing up, most of the access to music I had was only the radio.

I didn’t have an in to music that wasn’t easily accessible to me, you know? And so to choose a song that I don’t know that well by an artist that I don’t know that well, but whose energy and whose commitment and devotion to music is so well known, it was a great opportunity to embody the difference that I’m looking for.”You can check out Thao’s version of ‘Human Behaviour’ below:SoS is a 501c3 Music x Mental Health nonprofit organisation.

Their mission is to use a connection to music of all genres as a direct path to greater mental wellbeing and to hopefulness during crisis in order to decrease suicide.“I think it’s incredibly important to share stories of recovery and hope,” Thao said of her partnership with SoS. “I think it should be collected and broadcast as often and frequently as we can, because you never know when someone can just tuck it away and access it at another time.

The Queen makes surprise public appearance at Platinum Jubilee after health woes
Queen has officially made a public appearance at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.The main event, which featured incredible music performances as well as parades from the King's Regiment, was shown live on ITV on Sunday (May 15) - and even featured the likes of American actor Tom Cruise.And the Queen arrived in her classic Range Rover, escorted by a parade of horses as she slowly made her way out of the backseat aided by a walking stick.The crowd went wild as her car arrived in the parade square.According to ITV's Chris Ship, the Queen proceeded to take a small elevator up to her seat from ground level, preventing her from being forced to climb steps.He posted on social media: "She used a small lift/elevator to navigate her way from her car in the area to her seat in the stand. As a 96 year old, it’s surprising and astonishing she hasn’t had to do this before."She later sat atop a velvet-lined throne with a blanket across her knees to watch the proceedings outdoors, as the mounted guards performed to music.She wore a grey cardigan encrusted with jewels around her shoulders, over a blue floral patterned top.It comes after her health woes left the monarch unable to appear at the opening of Parliament - an event she had only missed twice before, both times due to pregnancy.Prince Charles appeared in her place to provide the opening speech.Fans were loving seeing their monarch in public again, as they took to Twitter to air their thoughts.One penned: "Why am I smiling so sheepishly.

UK Eurovision entrants now - £21m net worth, BGT affair, career U-turn and health scare
Eurovision Song Contest - but have you ever wondered what happened to some of the contestants after the shows aired?Some contestants have risen to new levels of fame in soaps including EastEnders, while others have stepped away from music all-together and embarked on completely different careers.While we may all remember some of the biggest winners on the night, including Bucks Fizz and Katrina And The Waves, many famous faces have also represented the UK in decades gone by.Ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday May 14, 2022, Daily Star takes a look at where some of the previous UK Eurovision contestants are now.Pop icon and British treasure Cliff Richard OBE has entered Eurovision, not once, but twice - narrowly missing out on winning the 1968 Song Contest by just one point.His classic song Congratulations was pipped to the post by Spain's La La La by Massiel, but five years later, Cliff returned with Power To All Our Friends - finishing third in the Eurovision Song Contest 1973.One of Eurovision's most successful entrants and biggest songwriters of all time, Cliff has released iconic hits including Move It, The Young Ones and Devil Woman, as well as becoming known as the King of Christmas - landing over five Christmas number ones in total including Mistletoe and Wine - so it is no surprise that he has an estimated net worth of over £70million.Although Cliff has never married or had children, it is reported that he dated Australian dancer Delia Wicks and tennis star Sue Barker in the past.Now 81 years old, he recently embarked on an 80th birthday tour, and was awarded an Order Of The British Empire (OBE in 1995), with the Cliff Richard News Twitter feed recently reporting that the star will be taking to an

Pope Francis to visit Canada in July with stops in Alberta, Quebec, Nunavut
Pope Francis will stop in Alberta, Quebec and Nunavut during his visit to Canada this summer.It says the capital cities of Edmonton, Quebec City and Iqaluit will act as bases for the trip from July 24 to 29.The visit comes after the Pope’s historic apology last month for the Roman Catholic Church’s role in residential schools in Canada.Archbishop Richard Smith of Edmonton, general coordinator of the trip for the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, says it will be another important step for healing and reconciliation. Pope Francis’ visit to Canada could include stops in Alberta, Quebec: source Smith says the locations were chosen by the Vatican and the Pope’s mobility and health issues had to be considered.He says specific sites and a formal program are to be developed with Indigenous partners.An estimated 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend residential schools and more than 60 per cent of the schools were run by the Catholic Church.On April 1, after meetings over several days with First Nations, Inuit and Metis groups at the Vatican, Pope Francis apologized for the deplorable conduct of church members involved in residential schools.“I want to say to you with all my heart: I am very sorry,” Francis said in Italian before a room of nearly 200 Indigenous delegates.
