I have performed since a very young age being a member of the choir at junior school. I have vivid memories of singing “Kum Ba Yah” and my music teacher (and my inspiration) Miss Whitham being suitably impressed. I passed the audition and began what was to become one of the most memorable times in my life.
Some of the children in the choir joked about me joining the choir so that I was able to go on a trip to Alton Towers. For me, the sheer joy of performing in front of an audience gave me such a thrill and made me feel a part of something special and the choir was certainly that. We performed all over the North West from Martin Mere to Radio Lancashire on a number of occasions.
