Being told that you're going to be performing at the BBC Electric Proms is not something that sinks in overnight. From the moment I was asked, I felt like the biggest opportunity in my life so far had just fallen in to my hands.
But I have to admit, it was also partially terrifying! In all my life, I have never actually stood on stage singing to an audience (apart from when I was very young, but that's another story). So all of a sudden it was up to me to transfer my love of music in the comfort of my own bedroom with a little mic, to a stage that would be exposed to thousands across the UK and all over the world.
The rehearsals were a whole new experience in themselves. I feel that working with such talented musicians enabled me to learn a bit more about the art of the music from everybody. Efficient team work became so essential under such a tight schedule!
It was so much fun to see each song progress to amazing performance material during the rehearsals. I had every faith that Saturday night was destined to be a huge success, especially after watching others rehearse and feeling so much energy from their songs.
