Nothing better than the joy of actually holding that record in your hand, getting it home and removing it from the sleeve. Either that or you sat by your radio and actually taped the latest songs, trying as best you could not to record the DJ speaking at the end!

Primarily I am a classical singer or as I often describe 'classical session singer' as a lot of what I do is performing at ceremonies such as weddings and funerals as well as concerts and events rather than any long runs of shows. When I sing at an event such as a funeral, I feel incredibly privileged to give someone who was so loved and regarded a special farewell in the form of music, which I think is the most amazing gift in the world!
