On Saturday 17th June, I was in the throws of chaperoning a show at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where I work as a singing teacher for their 4:19 academy, when I received a Twitter notification. When I finally got the chance to check it, I saw it was from @bbcmerseyside…
I had no idea so obviously, I was shocked and instantly opened the iPlayer app to listen. Unfortunately, with 20 teens in “show mode”, it wasn’t happening! So I retweeted, posted on Facebook and decided to listen to it at home with a glass of something nice!
I got home at 11pm and sat down to listen and I was surprised that the song they chose was ‘One Reason’, I had assumed it was ‘Can’t We Just Be Friends’! And the comments were lovely too!
Here’s the show if you want to listen on iPlayer…
I still can’t believe I was played as part of BBC Introducing, it’s a huge confidence boost and Im so grateful! Getting the email after and seeing the word ‘Broadcast’ on my BBC Introducing account is a great feeling considering that just 6 months ago, I nearly gave up on musical journey completely!
One Reason will be part of the EP due to be released July 2017. A Concert Window gig will also be announced in the near future.
Thanks for reading!
