Powerful stuff - would love to hear her doing Song to the Siren
It is, isn't it? The venue certainly helps: David Hepworth, however, staked a claim for The Sage in Gateshead. Christine Collister has always hit the spot for me - listen to her treatment of Leiber and Stoller's I Keep Forgetting.
The Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall are two big venues will pretty amazing acoustics (both built with this in mind of course). Plenty of small venues too, but Union Chapel and Wilton Music Hall have to be right up there with the best.
well Wembley arena is never going to trouble the judges in this competition :-)
what a great voice and such great control and I have always loved the song.
