DID you know I’m a recorded singer-songwriter? OK, so it wasn’t exactly a chart topper. Actually, it didn’t even make the charts.
ABC Music recorded a Christmas song I penned and it was toured as part of a North West and West Coast Tasmania Christmas carols series back in 2004. I might also add the song was backed by the 80-piece Burnie Youth Choir, led by my fabulous singing teacher Katy Pakinga. If you are wondering why I’m introducing myself, yes, I also hosted the concert series.
Let’s be frank here, my singing is dodgy. American Idol intro, anyone? Please!
Beyonce, if you’re reading this, sorry but the song is copyrighted so don’t even think about stealing it. However, there’s a tab up in the top right hand corner there called “contact” if you want to talk money. Plus, I have a whole collection of other originals if you’re interested.
Please note, the file was huge and I spent half the night trying to compress it. Unfortunately, I failed. So it may take a while to download. Big apologies. Am working on trying to make the file smaller!
And here’s the Burnie Youth Choir’s much better (rather low res) version – minus me!
The concert was held in front of a few of hundred people at the Burnie Civic Centre.
STAY TUNED: I have a rather big Christmas announcement to make on Sunday…
Do you support your local carols? What’s your favourite carol?
