Meet My New Crush – The Dualers

While running some errands on the high street yesterday after sis-in-law, niece and I treated ourselves to a good time at the health club, my ears started tingling with excitement as his sonorous voice filled the air. Of course I was already walking on sunshine, basking in the lingering euphoria of the just concluded pure indulgence.

We followed the trail of his voice till we found the spot. Based on the style of the music and texture of his voice, I wasn’t expecting to see none other than a black Jamaican bloke doing his thing.

Was I wrong?

I couldn’t believe my eyes when they fell on this eye candy! I quickly whipped out my phone to record a little bit of his busking for as long as the memory on my phone permitted. 🙂

Listen for yourself and do tell what you think… I do apologize in advance for the background chatter! 🙂

 

Needless to say, the rest of the evening was spent surfing Youtube, listening to their numerous performances. We love him already and can’t wait to see him in concert!

Day Fifteen: It Got Cancelled!

In life, I try as much as personally possible to take things & occurrences with a pinch of a salt. I try not to get overly attached to people or things though while present I make the effort to give my best. I remember a few years back, for several weeks we had rehearsed for the up coming annual Christmas concert which would be featuring the All Souls Orchestra  in London.

The week of the concert was really bad weather-wise. It kept snowing and that was not comforting. With that, the prospect of an event cancellation hovered over us as we rehearsed every day of that week leading to the D-day. We hoped and prayed it would be a fair weather so the hall could be filled and we wont have to perform before bare leather.

The morning of the event I made a quick dash to the high street just to get one more thing to add to my outfit. As I got off the bus to start my walk home, it started snowing like it was going out of fashion. Within minutes all I could see was a blanket of snow yet still I was hoping against hope. No sooner than I got in the dreaded text came in. It’s been cancelled it read. I was so gutted!

I was really looking forward to the event. The one we had the year before was really nice. I was really looking forward to singing with the orchestra again but the snow hijacked the show of the day.
