Coventry is a Truly Wonderful Place of Reconciliation

I had the most delightful visit to Coventry when I was invited to sing at a BOPA conference held at the Belgrade Theatre.

My day started with a BBC interview with a wonderful presenter called Vic Minnet.

Press on the image to Listen –

bbc coventryAs I was on my way to see Coventry Cathedral later, she gave me a great tip of how to get the best first impression of the Cathedral which helped to make my visit such a profound one.

Her suggestion was to walk straight inside the Cathedral to the end and only then to look back at the ethereal work of the Saints and Angels engravings of John Hutton.

I followed Vic’s instructions and it was indeed an amazing experience.
It was so refreshing to see the same images that we have seen
throughout history, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance period but with a new interpretation.

The whole atmosphere of the Cathedral was of a welcoming place that anyone could come to pray or reflect.

Friday evenings are special for me before the Sabbath and I decided to go to the Cathedral for the evening service.

There was just a small group in the congregation and I had a very warm welcome.

With the Holy atmosphere, I asked if it would be possible to light Friday night candles as this is a Jewish custom and I was so moved when the Rev Stephen Fielding (the new Canon Treasurer) agreed.

I asked him if it would be possible to also say the prayer that accompany’s the candle lighting and he allowed me to.

It was so moving to say the prayer in a Cathedral and a place of peace .

The following day was also a very moving event at the Belgrade Theatre and Members of the British Organisation for People of Asian Origin made very inspiring speeches.

It was a great privilege for me to perform in front of such an esteemed audience that included Lords and Ladies,Bishops.
Mayors and Lord Lieutenants.

The Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry,

Mr Paul Sabhapati, West Midlands Queen’s Lord Lieutenant

This was such an important event especially in these days when the unity of all Nations is so very important .

As a person with a background of grandparents from Syria and Poland, the integration of East and West has become part of my life .
I sang ‘Free Will’ and Two Kisses.

Coventry is a truly wonderful place of reconciliation.

Day 24 : Radio plugger – Handing my single 72 Names (Hallelujah) to Neil Ashby

The reason I’m writing to you is as choosing the right radio plugger was what made all of the difference with my first release Beauty of the Duty which was on the Radio 2 playlist and championed by Chris Evans, Graham Norton and Steve Wright.

A radio plugger is the person that takes the final product of the single or album to the radio. In the UK radio pluggers are divided by national and regional pluggers. The aim of every plugger is first of all to get it to the national radio playlists (Radio 1 or Radio 2) and once it gets there it becomes obvious that the regional radios will follow suit. Finding the right plugger is a very important step if your doing it by yourself as first it’s very expensive with prices from £500 – £3000 per month, it’s important to make sure the plugger really loves the music and has had previous success and is not just after the cash. From my experience at the beginning of my career I remember I almost hired a plugger who used to be a top plugger but not longer had her heart on the pulse of the industry. I immediately felt that she was not confident enough to present my music, which is not the most obviously mainstream, and I pulled it at the last moment. Saying that, which is a good thing, top pluggers will not represent you if they don’t believe that they can make it happen for you even if you offer a lot of money. Most are sincere; one was so sincere he told me that over his dead body would one of my tracks be played on national radio! It was an old demo so I forgive him but following this luckily I found Neil Ashby. Please watch my video to hear Neil speak about 72 Names (Hallelujah)…
