SING LIKE NOBODY'S LISTENING.
That’s me: I’m always singing, rain or shine, audience or none. Everything & anything under the sun.
Which might be why my cat, Tallulah, always looks like she wants to claw out my tongue…
Even when I remind her that I WON 3rd place in a nationally televised singing competition, performing a jazzy song I wrote, she stares daggers and covers her ears with her paws.
DANCE LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING.
Another musical highlight was the BEST ACTRESS nomination I received for my role as Sarah in Guys & Dolls.
To pay the bills, I’ve sung in posh hotels in Cyprus, fronted bands for various gigs, and performed cabaret in private clubs and venues in Cape Town and London.
I’ve also sung in churches all over Africa, as well as in the U.K. and the Middle East.
The only thing I can’t do is dance. I’m an exceptionally awkward dancer. My husband calls me quirkily weird. And he loves me, apparently.
