My daughter has been shortlisted for a ‘Glee’ inspired singing competition at her school. All encouraging as she begins her high school years with a platform to nurture her own talents. It was fitting to see the theatre production ‘Respect La Diva in London’s West End Theatreland this weekend. Respect La Diva is very much an uplifting musical celebration paying tribute to some of the greatest female singers of all-time including Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Etta James and many more. The cast includes Shelia Ferguson from 70’s Girl band The Three Degrees, Denise Pearson from the Eighties band Five Star and Andrew Abraham, finalist of The UK’s X Factor in 2005. It seems to have received a mixed bag of reviews but I can say we thoroughly enjoyed it and are full of praise for all involved with this entertaining production. So well done to my friend Kerys Nathan, the director Adrian Grant and the cast and crew. The show, which supports the charity REFUGE, runs in London until September 24th.

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!
