There are too many books that have impacted me, whilst at school it was that How It Was by Maureen Duffy but about 20 years ago I picked up Acts of Faith by Iyanla Vanzant whilst in an Atlanta book shop. It moved mountains in my life, it was right on time for me. I shared the readings whilst on Choice FM and it just took off here in the UK
I can’t remember my first actual concert BUT I do recall being given tickets to see Stevie Wonder at Wembley years ago in my early radio days as a Producer. It was AWESOME, this man who couldn’t see had thousands of eyes on him and he just delivered his musical craft.
The first single I bought with my own money with Show You The Way To Go by The Jacksons
The last theatre production that I really enjoyed was Dreamgirls. Watching Amber Riley was out of this world, and then interviewing Jennifer Hudson recently and talking about the film that won her an Oscar just joined all the dots!
The TV show I’d describe as my guilty pleasure is Scandal – I’m so obsessed with that show.
