In Celebration of My Sisters blows out it’s twelth year birthday candles this Saturday. I’ll be attending and I am quite looking forward to it. It’s always great to see the different generations of women – mothers who come along with their own mums, as well as their daughters too. It’s also a nice opportunity to see the greats from the Lovers Rock era and this year’s line up includes Janet Kay, Caroll Thompson and Paulette Tajah. Eighties soul crooner, Alexander O’Neal will be the headline act. I went to see him at the Broadway theatre in Catford recently and had a fantastic night. You can say what you want to say about that man but he has a phenomonal voice. Mmm, even now I’m conjuring images of swaying along with the blue rinse crew, eyes shut tight, singing along to ‘If You Were Here Tonight’. I’ll post an update on how it went on Saturday night. But in the meantime, here’s one from the vault.
