Live @ 5: Small town singer in her slippers
Through lockdown and beyond, we’ve loved The Creative Voice Studio’s Camilla Wards short, fun and sometimes moving Sunday sessions. Each week, Camilla invites her audience to suggest songs which usually results in a unique and quirky mashup performed by the multi-talented Camilla. Themes covered so far include the 80s and TV themes. Things don’t always go to plan (it is live, after all), but the Sunday sessions with Camilla, ably assisted by husband David and the family pooch, are always a joy to watch. Catch the sessions live on The Creative Voice Studio page on Facebook. Watch the replays via the YouTube channel:
