The Louisville Music COVIDiary today features Louisville native Derrick Grant who put together a video parody  based on the song from Little Shop of Horrors  “Suddenly Seymour” called “Suddenly Andy”.  The ‘Andy’ is Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and his response to the Covid 19 pandemic for which he has many fans.

Original words by Howard Ashman & original music by Alan Menken. Parody lyrics by Roy Lee Wigginton. Performed by Derrick Grant & Carrie Cooke Ketterman. American Sign Language interpretation performed by Stephen Birch & Amy Schilling.

Welcome to The Louisville Music COVIDiary, a web series that highlights our City’s amazing and talented musicians as they deal with the effects of the COVID19 Pandemic. Because of the forced closure of our music venues and other places for artists to perform, many musicians are left without much needed income and disconnected from their audiences and each other. In this series, we have asked musicians to send us their homemade music videos as a way to stay connected in this strange and uncertain time.

If you’d like to participate please upload your video to Youtube then send the link to Laura Shine at lshine@wfpk.org.

Laura is the WFPK Assistant Program Director and afternoon host.
