Singing Bus Driver Becomes Unlikely YouTube Star

Updated: Feb 9, 2023

A singing bus driver has become an unlikely Youtube sensation after a feel-good music video he made about his job racked up tens of thousands of views.

The plan was simple. Ranjit Singh wanted to show his family in India what he did for a living so he made the film with the help of his colleagues at National Express, in England's West Midlands.

His song celebrates multi-cultural Britain and what it’s like to serve a multi-faith community while driving buses across the industrial heartlands of the Black Country. Despite what some might consider a mundane subject matter, the heart-warming video about the pride Ranjit takes in his work has, much to his delight and surprise, gone viral.

Since the four-minute long footage was uploaded to Youtube, a video which was originally just meant for family, has been viewed almost 100,000 times.

The uplifting track was recorded against the backdrop of one of the company’s garages and at West Bromwich Bus Station. “I have a great passion for driving and singing, so I wanted to combine the two together,” said the 59-year-old from West Bromwich.

“I thought there was no better way than a video to show my family back home what I do for a living."
