Over £4,000 raised for Cash for Kids by Anna Foster's Magic Choir!!!

Anna at The Sage
What a great night last night at The Sage, Gateshead. Regular listeners of Anna Foster’s Breakfast show on Magic 1152, will know all about it, but for the rest of you, you missed a wonderful night.

In true Gareth Malone style, Anna invited listeners to turn up, only about nine weeks ago, to form a choir that could sing in concert to raise money for North East Charity “Cash for Kids”. Unsure of what response she would get, Anna arrived to the first rehearsal, to find 70+ people, who went on to commit to rehearsing each week and deliver the fantastic performances we enjoyed last night. Directed by Mark Deeks of Music Newcastle, the choir sang impressively and were joined in the first performance by the pupils of Hadrian Primary School, South Shields.

They put a smile on everyones face! During the second performance - it being past the bedtime of some of those youngsters, local band North Road, gave us a couple of their songs.

Tom sang a solo of “Love Changes Everything” - a video of which will appear on this site very soon. He also sang “All I Ask Of You” with Anna, and again, a video will appear here very soon. Other soloists included tenor, Paul Smith, Laura Graham, and Mark did a lovely Christmassy duet with his girlfriend Angela Lawery. It all added up to a wonderful evening’s entertainment. Tom sold his CD on the night, and donated £80 from the sale proceeds to Cash for Kids. Who knows, but let’s hope they do it all again next year?

Full steam ahead to Christmas!

Tom Wyllie singing at Marabini December 13
Time for a quick update! Here we are, halfway through December, and Tom has been singing his socks off! He has been singing both at Marabini’s and La Torre in Bedlington, and he has more Christmas gigs to come! La Torre is a new venue for Tom, but the staff and customers were very welcoming, and at the end of the night, Tom was giving the remaining few a “personal concert” of some of his favourite songs.

Christmas party season is well under way now though, and at Marabini’s last Saturday, Tom had the whole restaurant singing along to lots of songs. We have some video clips, which we will try and piece together in to a montage as soon as possible! Laura Mills definitely enjoyed her night:

Twitter - best time last night at the first of many of my 21st birthday celebrations, thank you @TomWyllieSinger & Marabini's for an amazing night! :)
You can check out where he will be on his gig dates page. He is back at Marabini’s this Friday and Saturday - and don’t miss his guest solo appearance at Anna Foster’s Magic Choir at The Sage on December 18th! They are singing in aid of Cash for Kids. But first, see you at Marabini’s!
