“Amazing Grace – at the Coliseum…
In case you missed our performance of this song on Earth Day, here is some of it! Looking at it now, I’m feeling very thrilled that this new arrangement with orchestra actually Did work … and maybe this is a signpost to where we might be heading. Does anybody think that might be a good idea? Thanks, Janie Dee and Sky Arts for making this happen. And thanks dear pal Stuart Morley for working through 3 nights with me by FaceTime to create the arrangement. Thanks, Jen Tunney for this capture. And thanks most of all to Kerry Ellis for making it fly. Cos without that vocal, there would be no point !! Songs are all about the singer !!! You heard it here !! Bri.”
