I’m the Executive Assistant to the EMEA GM, based in London, and I support day-to-day running of EMEA.
I started singing in primary school and took part in school plays and concerts, always getting involved with anything musical. My first solo, at age 9, was Leaving On A Jet Plane by John Denver, to the entire school and parents. My first time singing in a pub was at age 15, wearing my Mum’s dress and loads of makeup to look older. I sang one song, Angelo by Brotherhood of Man. In my early 20s I started singing in bands on weekends and travelled all over UK, and on occasion different parts of the world, performing.
My Mum loved classical music, while Dad was a huge Elvis fan, so I feel I got an all-round taste of different music from a very early age. My influences in my teens were Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, and the Eagles. I discovered Stevie Wonder in my early 20s and decided he was the best singer/songwriter to ever live.
