I've gone for a little Adele themed introduction & title. Why? I don't know.
What a week and what a time to be alive! Firstly, I want to thank all of you for liking, sharing, following The VIP Project on social media and checking out our website & blog. We have had a great response so far and I really can't thank you enough. We want to keep building on this, so please keep spreading the VIP word.
The last week has been a busy one. I have been responding to numerous enquiries about the project, doing some admin & arranging radio interviews. Madness, but it's all very exciting. I'm a little concerned about the radio interviews as I have a Brummy accent, need I say anymore...
I'll be able to tell you more details about our radio plans in the next couple of weeks and would love you to tune in.
I was asked recently, "what do you want people to get out of The VIP Project?" As I tried to give my answer, my eyes began to burn and I almost started to cry (just Imagine what these radio interviews are going to be like). There is so much I want the participants, artists & our audience to get out of the project that I could hardly put it into words. I hope that this project will empower & inspire people amongst many other things, which at present I can't put into words without starting to cry.
When I was planning this project, I came across Marie Naffah, a singer-songwriter, based in London. She did an amazing TEDx Talk and has pretty much said what I want to say, without tears. Please watch her talk here:
Thank you for reading & listening.

Before I go, next week, I'll be announcing our artists that are delivering the workshops. Keep checking out our blog everyday from Wednesday to be in the know!
