A Wigan musician will have one of his songs featured in a new short film about the life of a truly extraordinary man. Rik Jones, from Newtown, spoke of his honour at having Walk A Mile In My Shoes selected for the soundtrack of new production 7 Days. The film is about the inspirational exploits of Dave Heeley, a Birmingham father-of-three who in 2008 became the first blind person to complete a gruelling challenge of doing seven marathons spread across the continents on seven successive days.

Riks Big Night.

https://pixelrevolutionfilms.wordpress.com/2019/02/08/the-big-night/



"It was also great to finally meet Wigan based singer-song writer, Rik Jones. Rik, who is also blind, wrote and performed the final song in our film. It’s a very touching and beautiful song and was a natural fit for our film because the lyrics mirrored Dave’s story perfectly"

Rik’s song, Walk A Mile In My Shoes is taken from his album The Hotel With No Name and is available on iTunes.  Check it out, he’s a very talented guy!
