The girls were filmed while they sang with the youngsters, with the footage to be used in a music video accompanying the song.

In a video posted on their Facebook page earlier this month, the girls, from Bishop Cuthbert, said they were hoping to get their recording to Number 1 in the download charts after their Christmas song for Bradley - Our Superhero (A Christmas Wish) reached Number 12 last year.

The song was chosen because of Bradley’s famous smile which has touched the hearts of a nation.

Their mum Leesa Crawford said: “The girls had done the Christmas song for Bradley and just wanted to help make some memories for his mum and dad, so they just thought they would do this song and get his school involved.
“They sang a verse with his class which was filmed and will be used in the video for the song.

“We asked people to send us photos of their loved ones who have been affected by cancer and we were inundated with thousands of photos.
“We will use many of these in the video along with the class singing with the girls.

“The girls have been rehearsing with the kids who are just six years old and it is fantastic - it is really beautiful.”

In the video little Bradley also sings the last line of the song ‘If you smile’ which was recorded by his mum.

Joanna Clark headteacher at Blackhall Colliery Primary School said 35 of his classmates sang in the song.

She said: “It has been lovely for them to be a part of it.

“It is something that we were approached to do as Bradley has been part of our school since nursery and although he is now too poorly to attend he still has some good friendships.

“So his classmates doing the song was their way of helping him.

“They were very excited to be a part of it and the verse that they sang was the verse about Bradley.”
