Anywhere in The Worrrrrrrrrrrrrrld

Last Thursday was the launch for the Coca-Cola theme for the 2012 London Olympic Games as part of their campaign 'Move To The Beat' which aims to fuse music and sport together and get people moving to the beat of London this summer!!! Which Mark Ronson and I have written and recorded.

It was held at 'Under The bridge' at Stamford Bridge, where Mark played an exclusive London themed DJ set playing everything from The Clash to MIA and I played a set with my full live band, finishing along side Mark playing 'Anywhere in The World' Live together for the first time. 

Mark travelled around the globe recording the sound of different athletes performing their sport, and sampled them to make a unique track fusing sport and music.

Was fun meeting all the competition winners from all over the world, loved it when the crew from Amsterdam broke out in to a break-dancing routine!! :) Felt like i was in a musical

Vogue Going For Gold Issue!!

So I never thought that my 5' 2'' self would ever be in bloody Vogue! But I did a shoot for them for their Going For Gold special June edition!!

Kate Moss looks extremely amazing on the cover. I HAVE HAIR ENVY!!! You can find out how to do the hairstyle on Vogue's Website here, but i think it might take a couple years practise.

I was part of a line-up of other British artists, actors, musicians and models (met the lovely Jamie Winston is the dressing room) and the morning was an experience I'll never forget even though it was freezing in Regents park and we got told off by the park keeper in his truck with a flashing orange cone on the top a few times (it got a bit heated).

B's Baking Crew

OK I'm seriously worried about getting old cause I've been loving making cakes, I always liked making em but my memory is so bad I'd always forget an ingredient and it would come out the oven looking disgusting whilst my mum politely tasted it with me looking at her disappointingly!

But any who it was my mum's birthday a couple days a go so i made her some cupcakes! If you got any good recipes send em my way initttt!!!

R.I.P Donna Summer

R.I.P Donna Summer, the original Dance Diva Don!!! Definitely a massive inspiration for me, I love how important and influential her records were in shaping dance music and changing the game! Love to her family she will be sorely missed.

This must be the sexiest song in history>>>

Get It Loud In Libraries Mini Tour

I am really excited that I am going to be doing a mini tour of some intimate gigs in Libraries!!! I remember it being a great change from singing in a sweaty music venue smelling of old beer to being in between books making me feel 50% a bit intelligent and 50% a bit like I'm being a rebel in a classroom.

These gigs are going to be really personal and I hope a highlight of the year.

My full band and I will be in:

Oldham Library, 4th June >>> GET TICKETS HERE

St Helens Library, 6th June  >>> GET TICKETS HERE 

Rugby Library, 8th June >>> GET TICKETS HERE

See you there!!!!
