Music Monday: Shania Twain!!!!

I’m unbelievably excited about new music from Shania! She is one of my idols and her music is music I grew up with so has a huge amount of nostalgia attached to it. 

I’ve just heard her latest song and wanted to share it as this week’s ‘Music Monday’ post. 

Here it is:

Have a great week!

Performance Showcase 2017!

And there we have it! The second annual Performance Showcase complete! A huge, huge, huge well done to all singers who took part and the wonderful WLV songbirds. I am so proud of everyone who performed this evening. It’s an absolute joy to work with you all (and of course not forgetting all the other wonderful singers I get to teach) every single week!! I know how hard you work and it’s an honour to be able to see you shine like you all did tonight. Also, a huge thank you to all those who helped bring it all together. Especially Bill, for helping with sound, Adam for accompanying some of the singers and Abi for helping it all run smoothly. I am so grateful. And lastly… we had a ‘little’ collection at the end of the evening for Bloomin’ Arts and we raised £115.62!!! Every single donation, big or small, really does help this amazing charity so thank you so much to everyone who donated. A successful evening on many levels. Right… Let preparations for the 2018 Performance Showcase begin!! ??? Lou xx
