Jamie Lonsdale and Friends

On the 23rd of October, Jamie Lonsdale celebrated his birthday by holding a fund-raising concert for The Church of the Annunciation in Marble Arch.

Jamie, Flora McIntosh, Alexandra Kennedy and I sang a number of solo songs and duets, including the very first performance of 'Forever Together', a duet written by Jamie and Robert Emery which Jamie asked me to sing with him.

Robert Emery was the Musical Director and he arranged our songs beautifully for the 16 piece orchestra who accompanied us for the concert. It was such a joy to sing a duet I wrote with Chris Eaton called 'I Never Left You' with an orchestra for the very first time. Thank you Jamie for singing it with me!

Many thanks to all involved for a wonderful evening and thank you Andrew Prior for these pictures.
