A sweet little ditty for ole IRMA
Anne Davis (pictured at right), featured as a Friendly Rectal Microbicide Advocate in 2008, felt IRMA deserved a gift at the Microbicides 2010 conference, a ditty to capture our collective intentions, hope and energy. A sound studio, Imagine Audio Media which she’s worked with for years kindly produced the music to accompany her lyrics as their gift to IRMA. 
On recording day, when they didn’t have the singer they thought they would, she also did the vocals (first time ever). “Susan Boyle I am not,” said Anne, “but I am so appreciative of the work IRMA does, I figured I would try my best.” 
The song was featured at the conference reception where IRMA’s new report – “From Promise to Product: Advancing Rectal Microbicide Research and Advocacy” – was launched. You can listen to it here.
The lyrics are:
IRMA — They just rock the rump.
IRMA — They’ve got the jump.
IRMA — From a crow’s nest perch.
IRMA — Advocating research!
