Friend and singer Elmarie Ward, has raised a staggering £1500 for her family and village in the Philippines. Thousands of people were struck by the devastating typhoon 2 weeks ago.
She built up enough courage to sing beautifully in Bournemouth square on Sunday 17th November 2013.
Singing for 30 minutes, Elmarie managed to keep strong and dignified singing different cover classics such as Elton John’s ‘Your Song’, and Norah Jones, ‘Sunrise’. I am glad I was able to help her go through some basics of singing and technique so she could become a little more confident whilst on stage. (It was the least I could do!)
Her efforts proved worthy, managing to raise £300. Last Sunday, Elamarie organised another event at the Manchester hotel where nearly £1000 was donated!
Her family can now have a new roof for their home in the Philippines; Elmarie has since received a call from someone willing to donate more money for her family, and would like her to sing on Saturday!
Thank you everyone who was able to support and donate.
Peace to all. xx
