Jorja Smith By Any Means video features British swimmer Alice Dearing


Singer Jorja Smith has used her new music video to amplify British open water swimmer Alice Dearing’s work around diversity.

It features Smith’s friends and family, as well as 23-year-old Dearing, who has competed at three World Championships and is on course to become the first black woman to represent Great Britain in swimming at the delayed Tokyo Olympics next year.

Last year, Dearing became the lead ambassador for the Black Swimming Association, a charity launched to encourage more black people to swim.

And Smith, who was named best British female solo artist at the 2019 Brit Awards, has spoken publicly to champion Dearing’s work to “increase diversity in aquatic areas and break down the barriers”…
