Christmas has been a little crazy this year. Exciting, fun, festive with plenty of singing. Having last sung back in 2012 for the very talented songwriting-team Mark Petty and Barry Anderson they asked me to sing again in their West End concert at the St James’s Theatre, in aid of the ‘Make A Difference Trust’. And to make it more special they asked me if I would sing the same song – Santa You’re Still My Friend – albeit this time as the older sister.
I sang alongside Ilan Galkoff, who played my naughty brother, and the very cute Harriet Turnbull, playing my cheeky, younger sister! We had such fun singing together in rehearsals and the night itself went off perfectly… Ilan and Harriet were both brilliant.
And what a night… some of the most amazingly talented West End stars were there, each singing an ‘Anderson and Petty’ number, including Natasha Barnes, Amy Lennox, Gloria Onitiri and Katie Brayben to name just a few. There was such a great atmosphere at the venue and I managed to take some photos with some of my favourite singers/actresses. It was also great to work with the wonderful Simon Beck, Musical Director for the evening.
So a final and BIG shout out to the wonderful writing duo Mark Petty and Barry Anderson for inviting me to take part in this great event 🙂
