A video clip of children from Wattville primary school in Birmingham, England singing Iron Maiden’s 1983 classic “Flight Of Icarus” was posted on youtube last week. The four-minute clip shows the children singing the song while headbanging and later rocking some air guitar. Some of the kids have fake guitars with them as the chant they way through the tune.
The video, which can be seen below, was uploaded on YouTube last Tuesday and has already been watched by over 177,000 people and “liked” over 1,600 times.
The song is part of Kerrang! magazine’s Cash For Kids charity which is aiming to “raise funds for sick and underprivileged children across Birmingham and the West Midlands to help local kids in crisis.”
