".Viv had said that the Soul Singers were a friendly bunch...and it's true! I've really appreciated everyone taking the time to say 'hello', ask me how my week has been and have never felt like the 'new boy'. My fellow singers have really made me feel at home.
In my early months in the choir, I did not feel confident to attend the gigs where the choir sang in public. There was never any pressure on me to take part; this helped me to gain confidence at my own pace. It was suggested that I had a bit of practice singing to the public by attending one of the ‘busking events', which I did. I was so pleased I did as it allowed me to understand how the choir conducted themselves in public and it gave me the opportunity to ‘try it out'! I then sung at the Wolsey Theatre with the choir in July which was amazing and I now sing at as many events as possible."
