Calling You is known to be the song that caused me the biggest miracle in my life, meeting my husband. It was a very cold winter evening when I was in the studio and I asked my producer Phil Curran after our session to play a few chords as I feel like writing a song. It was probably a real yearning for finding the love that I was so much looking for and because I felt so lonely in the UK, which is not my home place, which made the angel hear me.
‘I’m calling you now I’m alone, I’m calling you my angel make me strong’.
After a few weeks of writing the song I met (the angel) who after a very short time became my husband.
Last Christmas I took a seven day holiday in an amazing Spa Hotel in Goa – The Park Hyatt.
As I have a holistic approach to life I asked my husband to go to a Spa hotel rather than our traditional beach holiday. It proved to be the best holiday we’ve ever had and I benefited from a relaxing state of mind and body together with the glorious sunshine and the beautiful Goan cuisine.
My husband and I have travelled extensively, but this was the first time we have visited a Spa Resort and it made an interesting change. I booked the holiday through Flight Centre East Sheen and the great service and friendliness started before even going away. Robyn from Flight Centre found us the the luxurious hotel, set in sixty-four acres of manicured gardens and carefully designed lagoons, pools and restaurants there was a strong impression of space and quietness. The facilities and attention to detail in the beautiful rooms was everything you would expect from a sophisticated 5 star resort with a wide range of relaxing treatments to choose from at the Spa and expert tutorage in the Yoga classes. I took 3 private Yoga classes for the price of one private class in the UK and I could see a change in my body and suppleness in few days. I felt clearer and more focused and my appetite changed.
Since then I am still enjoying the benefits of my treatments and my focus on more nutritional and nourishing ingredients in my food.
When we were driving quite deep into the desert, we suddenly saw a building that looked like a mosque. It happened to be ‘Nabo Mosa’ – Prophet Moses place of burial according to the Muslims. I couldn’t believe it, I started to scream and cry in the car. Itzik the guy that took me to the desert didn’t know anything about me or the song but from all of the places in Israel he took me to the right place. ‘Calling You’ is a love song but people who look deeper into the lyrics will see that the main inspiration of the lyrics is Moses with parables taken from the Bible; ‘Will I ever see the promised land’. After walking for 40 years in the desert Moses never saw the promise land and the question is why?
When we started filming an Arab guy told us that we were not allowed to film as it’s a Holy place but I told him that my song is very spiritual and about Moses and he allowed us to continue. I felt so emotional and honoured. I went inside the place and as one of the rooms had a beautiful acoustic I started to sing the line ‘Can you hear my voice’ without the backing track, and the Angel heard me and a Muslim man came to me and shook my hand and asked if I am Jewish. He was such a kind man who deals with education and peace. A miracle into miracle, a Muslim and Jewish inside a mosque, feeling the vibrations in air, the warmth of the desert – the love – with the same roots & connection – Moses.
On the same day that I uploaded the video on YouTube, I was in a wonderful healing retreat. At lunchtime I shared with everyone the story about the miracle. One of the girls who I didn’t know was a Palestinian and her grandfather was the man that restored that building. I couldn’t believe that we were talking about the same place but I showed her video and it was the same place! Angels sometime hear us when we pray with sincerity.

Sometimes in life you have to relinquish control and surrender. Let things happen naturally. When you open yourself to miracles, the sky is the limit. I would like to share with you in few blogs the miracles behind the song ‘Calling You’.
Miracle 1- The miracle was when we were deep inside the desert filming. I have always told my husband, that when we have a big house I want him to bring me a newly-born sheep or goat so I can watch it grow and hold them, not really sure why but I always wanted it. Suddenly we saw a shepherd who came from nowhere, he spoke in Arabic a few words with the cameraman and offered me to hold a baby goat that had just been born. I was not sure at the start how to hold her, she was so soft and warm and I felt very emotional!
Here’s the full video for ‘Calling You’:
A short video of the filming of the 72 Names (Hallelujah) video. It was the biggest production that I have ever been responsible for. We had 12 people on board traveling down to Dover and 7 members of the Vocally Sound choir that are guest singers on my new single.
The video starts with all of us on the way to the beach at Samphire Hoe near Dover and I promise to show afterwards when we are back home, but as always in filming unexpected things occur! We arrived at the location 3 hours later than scheduled, the wind was very strong on the day and it got dark earlier due to the delay.
It was an amazing experience and I don’t have doubt that the final version will be stunning.

A short video of creating for the first time a T-shirt with something of my own. I love the fact that in the morning I decided to go and do it and by lunchtime it was ready. Still I need to put much more time into getting the right shape of T-shirt and design. Every part of it is important in the process of doing any type of design: the material, shape, colour, fonts etc. At a later stage I will have T-shirts for sale on my website but its still early days!
In this video I finally convinced Rupert Truman, one of the leading photographers in the country who has shot images of bands from Pink Floyd to Muse and also my album and singles, to be in front of the camera himself!
