Age when you started singing

Always!

Favourite opera

That is not possible to name, it would be like choosing a favourite family member! But...I'm a sucker for Mozart and bel canto.

Favourite opera or musical role to perform

I have a one year old, so...'If you're happy and you know it - clap your hands!'

A fun fact not many people know about you

I also decorate cakes for a living. If you ever need a friend to make you fat - I'm your girl!

What do you like to sing in the shower?

Trashy pop. It's so good.

Quotes

"Kathryn Radcliffe sang the role with lushness and purity from a secret location. My guess is that Radcliffe sang from the pit - her voice sailing high and glorious from below."
