I had such an amazing time performing at the First Direct Arena to a 5000 strong crowd – it was absolutely a dream come true! 

With my band, backing singers and dancers on stage with me I  performed many of my favourite Christmas songs including ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’, ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’. and the duet ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ with Jim Pitchforth (who plays percussion in my band) .

It wasn’t all Christmas  songs, due to popular demand I sang a few favourites from this years Celebrate 20 tour including ‘This is me’ and ‘Never enough’, both from The Greatest Showman and an Abba medley which had the audience dancing in the aisles!

I also  sang some of my own songs including ‘The singer of your song’ and a very emotional rendition of ‘The hand that leads me’.

The audience were singing and dancing along all night which was fantastic and really made it the most spectacular night!

Thanks to my amazing photographer, David Charles, who took these fantastic photos.
