It's always been an ambition of mine to create my own album. Following on from my time on 'The Voice UK' this year, I've been inspired to make that dream a reality.
Behind the glamour of appearing on national television is a performer who has been without work for over a year now. The pandemic completely destroyed both the music and theatre industries, leaving vast numbers of performers with very little income. I myself have been unemployed for almost 6 months now and financial assistance available from the government has been very limited. Thankfully there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel for us all! And it looks like we'll be able to sing again very soon.
Savings that I had acquired prior to the pandemic have inevitably been used up. I had always hoped to make an album with this money but with your help, I'd like to be able to make this dream a reality again.
The album will be a collection of some of my favourite songs from the worlds of jazz, soul and musical theatre. It will cost around £10,000 to make a high quality album. This will include PR, advertising, photography, design, manufacturing, studio fees, musicians wages and more. It's a lot more expensive than I had ever anticipated!
Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
All my love,
