Go Coco getting its groove on with Alesha and Ashley
4th October 2012.
Music is at the heart of all things fun, and plays an important role in keeping the Go Coco office motivated and creative during our working day, so when we were offered the chance to work with music pros Ashley Walters and Alesha Dixon we jumped at the chance. Alesha and Ashley have been fans of Go Coco having first discovered it back stage at last year’s MOBO awards and so felt it was a great product to have involved in the video shoot for their latest collaboration – Your Love.
Go Coco kept Ashely and Alesha, as well as the crew hydrated during filming, and we also feature in the video too, which is a fantastic privilege for us – watch it for yourself here:
