How do you get the attention of approx 76,000 people? What has always been a good way to boost people when morale is low?
How do we spread the positive energy vibe?
Together we can make a change
Music is a universal language that almost everyone understands, it can comfort in times of need and inspire and drive, its for the young and the old and a good old tune can unite, and with this in mind to mark the 70th Anniversary of East Kilbride, local girl Claragh and singer songwriter JJ Gilmour have written and recorded the song EK OK.
They have gifted the song to the town in the hope that it will make people realise just how much is on their doorstep and just how much the hard work of so many people within the sporting and art communities in the town have helped and inspired the youth of the town. They hope that the song will be in your head whilst watching/playing any sport within East Kilbride. Use it to cheer your amateur football clubs, use it to support Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Tennis, Bowls, Judo, Swimming, American football the list is endless. Any sport played throughout the town, use it to get behind our own professional football club as they make their way up the leagues to one day play on the main stage of Scottish football, all of which brings a positive light to our town, all teams our population of approx 76,000 could get behind. Use it when we have a stadium that can host not just sporting events but be able to host music events, maybe, like our near neighbours in Kilmarnock we might attract Elton John or the likes! Sing the song when we support young artists from the town and for the famous that hail from the town that have come out to perform and join in the making of the video, people who appreciate what East Kilbride has meant for them and how much they want to be part of a positive energy that will regain our identity and help restore the community spirit within the town and make East Kilbride great again. Play the song for the existing businesses within the town trying hard to prosper and grow and invest and play the song loud and clear to any international business that may just hear it and come see what we, the people of East Kilbride, can achieve with a shift in energy, hard work and community spirit ...sing it loud... EK OK ...oh no we are not forgotten!
sing it loud...
EK OK ...oh no we are not forgotten!
