Many know that I was originally trained as a professional actress and singer and the fluidity of the creative arts is very important to me.


I am thrilled to be raising awareness and singing for the Mudeka Foundation show. The foundation was established by Anna Mudeka and raises funds for orphaned children in Zimbabwe. As I too was an orphan, this is especially important to me.


I will be singing solos and alongside Soprano Emma Nuule.


Tickets are still available and the rehearsal was filmed by the BBC with Emma and I sitting on the BBC Look East couch this Friday prior to the show.


Photos are from yesterday's rehearsal.
