In the middle of writing a piece on The Digitization of Heritage and Media in Qatar, I was reminded of a video that I took of Jessica a few weeks ago and have just not had time to share.

When we first arrived in Qatar, Sean and Jess could sing Happy Birthday in three languages – English, Afrikaans (Dutch) and Zulu. Our National Anthem has four languages, the ones mentioned already and Xhosa, all very African.

Jess can still sing Happy Birthday in three languages, with two slight variations from the original being Arabic and French replacing Afrikaans and Zulu.

So here is Jessica’s rendition of Happy Birthday for us in her two new languages 🙂 + English!!
