WOWWWWW! Last night’s sold out Catch A Fire show at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at Southbank Centre went off the Richter Scale of AWESOMENESS!
‘Completely triumphant’ is how the venue described it!
We’re all still buzzing from the vibe. As ever, Brinsley Forde was FABULOUS and the guys and gals of Jazz Jamaica All Stars and Urban Soul Orchestra were OUTSTANDING! The 75-voice VoiceLab Choir was just INCREDIBLE thanks to the MAGNIFICENT direction of Mark de-Lisser.
What a FANTASTIC audience, everyone dancing and smiling. We can’t find words for it so here are some of the messages left for us on the walls of the QEH foyer by members of the audience:
