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 Β£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!! πŸ˜‰πŸŽΆπŸ’œ Lou xx

Music Monday: La La Land

Ok ok, I’ll admit it… I still haven’t seen this film… I know!!!! As a musical theatre geek I am ashamed of myself! I will find time to watch it soon! However, I have heard many of the songs through my vocal students wanting to work on them, and so far so good! 

I recently heard this cover of ‘The Audition’ by Carrie Hope Fletcher and simply had to share it. Her vocal delivery and overall performance of this song is beautiful. In my opinion, Carrie’s voice is truly magical.

Here’s the link for this week’s ‘Music Monday’:

UK Country Music Awards

ORFILA NEWS:

This last year has been pretty surreal for us! We’ve played C2C twice, opened for The Stereophonics, Jess Glynne and Heather Small, recorded with some top musicians, toured Nashville and released our second album Never Slowin’ Down among other things! But one thing that we have yet to do is be nominated for a UK Country Music Award. It would mean the world to us if you guys could follow the link below and nominate us for UK Country Group of the Year and “ORFILA-Never Slowin’ Down” for UK Country Album of the Year! If you vote for us please make sure that you only vote once. If you’ve already voted for us in the past please DO NOT vote again! Thanks ya’ll!
