ROSS-on-Wye took centre stage for a new music video.

The town in the south of the county was the backdrop for April Shipton's new music video for her single Journey On.

Supporters of solo artist April raised the £1,200 needed to cover production costs in just three weeks.

The video will feature Ross residents and include scenes filmed in the town and surrounding area.

The contemporary Christian singer-songwriter found success last year when she submitted her music to national Christian radio stations and is currently celebrating Journey On as her fifth song to feature on radio playlists.

Last week it was leading national Christian broadcaster UCB’s single of the week and April was the station’s artist of the week.

She said: "I love Ross, and I think investing in community is really important, which is why I want to feature local scenery in the video.

“As I have a chance here to showcase what makes Ross great, I've chosen spots that mean a lot to me or demonstrate its outstanding beauty."

The day of filming took place at the end of June and April thanked Perfect Choice in Great Western Court and Penyard House in Weston Under Penyard as both allowed April and her team to film on their sites.

The release date of the film is still unknown but is expected to be the end of August.
