She says “This is a hugely exciting opportunity for me. I believe strongly that everyone should have the chance to sing.
“ Music is such a brilliant way of bringing people together. I’m hoping to continue building on the great work set down by Sheila and Pam. I already have some wonderful songs to begin with; a little bit of everything.
“Choirs are really gaining in popularity, as more and more people are realising the complete joy that is gained by singing, as part of a group.”
