The London Fringe Award For Best Singer & Songwriter 2011

The Ceremony of the London Fringe Awards and Honour of to receiving the

Award for Best Singer & Songwriter 2011

Timing is everything – to be in the right time t the right place . in Hebrew the word  Luck is Mazal .

If we take the Hebrew  letters of M, Z , L .

M =  stands for Makom – place

Z  =  stands for Zman – time

L = stands for Lhiot – to be

To be in the right time at the right place that is what the word luck means.

So all that long introduction is of how amazed I was that the Single official release was exactly on the day of receiving the Award. I think I was almost in a state of shock on the stage, although I didn’t show it.

Although I knew that its a Fringe Award, I couldn’t not wear a long black dress and feel like I am  in the Oscar…

The dress that I wear was a vintage dress which I took to a taylor to make it fit better. The secret is sometimes to buy dresses and change them as you like to get the right design for you.

We came on time to the event and I could feel my legs started to shake when I saw the amount of people – over 400. I never spoke before so many people. Although for a week I was talking to my self getting the speech right, I was so excited about it. Wrongly I typed it and printed before going.

The editor on his introduction of the evening asked me to have 60 second speech that put me into a more relaxed mood. My husband Simon Edwards which is the best coach in the world, told me not to mind about it and just read but unfortunately I didn’t listen to him.

Then I came to the stage all smiling but suddenly I felt that I am super excited. I also plan to sing few lines of the single as its words talks about ” The only thing that hold you back is you ” and  I managed to sing it twice.

Finally as I wanted to be quick I cut allot of names and the thanks I had in my mind,  so like to take the opportunity to Thanks – John Park the editor for believing in me all those years.

Ruth Deiches the best acting teacher in the world and my best friend that thought me so much and followed me from the first song I sang.

My friend and lyricist Joel Rockman that helped me from first week that I came to London 14 years ago. Boyd that is the most loyal camera man and know always how to get me right in video – as I am such a fussy person

Alison Lamb for all the help since my album 72 Names came out

Fraser Scott Lee for writing that beautiful poem that I turn to be the song – Beauty of the Duty.

Off course I thanks all of you my friends and fan that gives me all the time the great feedbacks to continue and now I am getting rewards of hard work.

All the music promoters and pr  – Neil  Ashby  for National radio that brought the single to radio 2 !

Hart Media that brought the single to over 39  radio stations in the regions playlist

Quiet Great Pr for all the hard work and the press coverage !

After the speech I drank the first glass of red wine and then the party started….not sure how many I had but I felt the celebration in the air.

It was such an amazing night and I was so privilege to win award among such talented directors, actors, comedian and real beautiful people.
