In September I conducted a huge singing event in Wrexham ‘Singing Streets’ where I led 1,000 singers 🙂
November was busy…
I led the anthems on the pitch for the Wales/ Ireland rugby match with my Wrexham One World Community Choir.
My North West Stroke recovery choir won a national award (Life After Stroke Award) and we went to a posh hotel in London on a coach, drank free champagne and performed to a live streamed red carpet evening full of celebrities. There was Juliette Stevenson, Warren Davies, Rob Bryden, Chico (who had a stroke the month before, loved our choir!) and lot of other celebs who were wasted on me!
We got our award from Baroness Floella Benjamin, Stephanie Beacham and Mark Goodier.
Here’s the write up of the event, and they also made this lovely film about the choir.
Later that week I filmed for BBC Watchdog with my Open Voice choir in Manchester. We filmed for hours singing 7 different songs, all about waiting (It was about energy companies keeping people waiting on the phone).
I composed 7 different ditties, but, we were only on telly for a minute at the most. They say it takes a day of filming to make one minute of television …
