We all had a fantastic time at “SING FROM YOUR SOUL” vocal workshop on the weekend. We covered so much ground and there were so many highlights across the day! Rebecca Henry shared some amazing stories and insights as well as pouring her heart out in two original songs that were just so moving. Truly breathtaking. Mick on Wheels inspired us all by his rock solid work ethic and his inspirational attitude. He then blew us away with his soulful and powerful songs.
A lot of great teaching time and practical techniques were developed. The highlight for me was covering improvisation. There are just no limits once we get a hold of this crucial, creative and important skill!
The masterclass was excellent. So much talent! Each singer brought such great soul to their performances and I was stunned at the level of quality – I LOVED the original songs too! I really need to add that hearing from Kathy and Imelda about their lives changing once they really embraced their voices was simply and beautifully inspiring.
Here is what one singer had to say about her time up on the stage:
“I had an amazing time, and it wasn’t TOOOO scary! LOL. I really enjoyed
the impro bit you got me to do, I felt like I could connect with the
audience even more and I LOVED playing around with the melody.”
The team on sound, film, media operation, registration table, (and morning tea!) were second to none and I loved seeing all the singers participate with such enthusiasm across the day.
The highlights DVD will be available soon so stay posted as we will let you know when it is complete!
The super exciting news is that YOU HAVE A VOICE is back on March 2013 and it is already shaping up to be an INCREDIBLE event. With Doug Williams, Mary Kiani and Gail Page all confirmed to bring their massive experience to the table plus their knock out voices, you will be stunned, inspired, encouraged, taught and thoroughly entertained by the end of the day! There is NOTHING like this event in Australia and every YHAV has had rave reviews like this one:
I came out of there on Saturday with excited emotion because I suddenly remembered why I began singing. It is who I am, I can’t do anything else and it’s not always about perfection.
I AM A SINGER. Thank you for reminding me of what it is all about.” – Anne Campbell

A quote that has inspired me this week is actually taken straight from the SING FROM YOUR SOUL declarations. “I respect and honour the people I work with.” Life is about relationships and I think this is such a worthwhile principle to live by. I am sure you agree.
