IT’S awful for soldiers to come home having lost limbs and be blinded.
We have raised £23,764 so far for Help for Heroes.
We’re going around all of the country doing this busking.
We were in Gosport’s High Street yesterday – we love doing it.
We were in Fareham on Monday and that’s quite military-centred too.
It’s been really good here, people have been crowding around and listening – it’s been really lovely.
It makes such a difference, I enjoy giving people pleasure out of my singing.
It varies how much we raise from place to place.
Both my grandparents Josephine Heather, 75 and Maurice Heather, 72, come with and my boyfriend Ben Keen, 20 – the whole family.
We did a little bit last summer but it has been mainly this summer.
We raised £16,000 last year during the summer, and we do some stuff at Christmas in the malls.
The difference is what we have raised so far this year.
We’re doing Southsea today, Thursday we are going to be in Commercial Road, Portsmouth, and Friday we’re not doing anything.
Then on Saturday we’re in Fareham again in the shopping centre.
Then on Sunday we’ll be at Gunwharf Quays.
I’ve sung all my life, I started singing lessons when I was about 11 years old but I was in shows and things before that.
I do gigs in-between doing this.
I am a ‘classical crossover’ artist.
I blend classical music with other genres such as folk, jazz, musical theatre and contemporary music.
