I am happy and all is right with the world.... Only Men Aloud won the BBC's "Last Choir Standing" as they should! I would have withdrawn from the human race had it been otherwise! I only started watching the show 2 weeks ago and they wowed me from the off! I only wish there were some young lads who could sing like that round here and that they'd come and join us at Sheppey Singers!!! There's only about 5 men altogether and they're all old (no disrespect to them - someone's gotta do it!). But us girls need a good reason to show up for rehearsals every week and having a few pert bottoms stood at the front row of the theatre on a Wednesday night would certainly improve things!
My fave OMA performance still has to be when they did 'Goldfinger'. It was fantastically entertaining! Feel sorry for Ysgol Glanaethwy cuz they were bloody good too (their rousing version of 'O Fortuna' was AMAZING! But the best men did win!
What a let down rehearsals for Sheppey Singers will be after that - if we're not out of tune, we're out of time! We only have 3 part harmonies on most songs so it's a good job we don't try and attempt any of the stuff the choirs did on the show. Some had 7 part harmonies. We've got no chance!!!!

- I'm a stay at home mum (yes it IS a non-profit industry - I've never had a penny for doing it and I don't know any mums who have!) to Aston who's 2 years old. I have 2 pet rabbits - Malcolm and Jimmy. I'm seperated from my husband and now live back in my hometown of Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey, Kent UK. I have also lived in London and West Sussex so I've knocked about the South East of England a bit! I'm a pagan and am inspired by natural things and love anything that's not been tampered with too much. I love watching rugby and football and my fave teams are Bath Rugby (cuz Matt Stevens plays for them! lol) and Fulham FC.
