This would be the place to put all those little 'birdy whispers' of upcoming tours or promo trips...

For example... on a radio interview (2GB) there was mention of British super glam soprano Katherine Jenkins heading down to Australia to perform.
(pleaaaase don't let this be a tease!)

Katherine Jenkins has always done her couple of days of promotion of her new album "Living a dream" last week. She didn't do any store signings etc, Just a bunch of TV and radio, mag interviews.

But she will be back later this year for concerts.

Keep an eye out.

Love,
Jenny

Hi it is Yvonne here. Hi to everyone I know from the various forums I post on.

Just thought you ladies may like to know that Daniel Belle from Australian Idol series 2 (the classically trained singer) is singing the National anthem before the Australian Wallabies Vs England Rugby Union match that will be televised on Channel 7 Australia on Sunday evening June 11 at 7.30pm. The match is from Telstra Stadium in Sydney.

I am definitely sure that this is the match his dad was referring to on his forum. I hope it is anyway. I don't really want to be the bearer of incorrect info, but I also don't want anyone to miss out, esp if they love the Rugby Union, ( well I don't, but I want to see how Daniel goes). Wow I just thought, this match will be broadcast internationally.

Well done Daniel and I hope this is the beginning of many great things for you.

I will just give you a brief outline about how I know Daniel( but not very well though) Actually it won't be that brief because I have met him three times now.


I have met Daniel about three times now post idol, he is a lovely young man and I saw him performing at the series 2 Idol concert here in Melbourne and also up at Bega in their RSL- Chanel Cole, Daniel and a few of her other musician friends did a charity gig to raise money for the Bega Hospital, there was another event this year, but I didn't go up this time, I had spent so much money on Il Divo (sorry Dan). That was the first time I ever met Dan up at Bega, both at the Karaoke night on the Saturday evening and then the concert at the RSL on the Sunday evening. I had met Chanel too, earlier in the day, we just run into her in the street outside their Art gallery, then in the evening I met her of all places in the ladies room and was talking to her ( about what i don't know, but she is very easy to talk to. I didn't meet Dan until the Saturday evening after all the karaoke proceedings had finished. He was very lovely and we got the sec guard to take photos, but mine did not turn out, we have a group one, but it is really fuzzy.

Then the following evening was the concert, it was mostly Chanel performing, it was organised through her forum, but she had some friends also, including Daniel (they are together, for those who do not know). Daniel only did a couple of songs,plus they did a couple of duets together. But he sang "He Ain't Heavy" ( he had done so also on the Idol show), the people seated behind me, well they all gave a really collective loud gasp at how powerful Daniel's voice was that night.


They stopped behind for autographs etc after the performance, the sec guard was not happy with how long it was taking, but my friend and I made sure we got to say goodbye to Dan and to Chanel before we had to leave for Melb the next morning. He saw us there and made sure that we didn't leave before saying goodbye to him, omg he hugged me, and yes I got a kiss, like you would a long lost friend and thanked me for coming all the way up from Melbourne. I could, I suppose have broken the journey too, and called off to see my cousins in East Gippsland(but i didn't). The sec guard/manager relented, rather reluctantly I thought, he was the same one who took the photo (which didn't turn out for me), so I wasn't really happy with him anyway. He was all too eager to close up shop, ok I know their liquor licence was over by that time, but the bar was already shut up.


Then in August last year, Daniel and Chanel came down to Melbourne to do two nights at Capers in Hawthorn (just ten mins out of the city centre) and we had a table booked, nice place too Capers ( would actually be a perfect place for Kane Alexander to perform at too). Daniel did quite a few songs, some theatrical kind of ones, like Luck Be A Lady, what else did he sing, I am trying to remember now, oh yes, MY Way, Falling in Love With You, some duets with Chanel, Chanel did quite a few songs also, her influences are artists like Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald. So we got to meet them both again after the show and Daniel sat down with us all for about ten mins or more and we also got to meet his dad. I was so surprised, he remembered my name and came and gave me another hug and kiss and thanked me for coming. He really is a very lovely young man ( he turned 23 the middle of last month- May) and I don't think his talent was encouraged or nurtured enough on Idol (stupid judges).

His dad is fantastic, he keeps us very updated on what Dan is up to.

I think Dan is hoping to move into musical theatre in the future, he has returned to the course he was doing before Idol came along- back at the AIM.

I am pretty certain that this is the date, Rania, but better to watch it to make sure, the game probably starts at 8pm, but the telecast is from 7.30pm on Channel 7. Neither he nor his dad have been on his forum yet, since his dad first told us the great news, to confirm it though.


But yes in the meantime, I shall give you the forum addy.

I absolutely adored David's voice at the concert, if I wasn't in love with his voice and him before the concert, I most certainly was afterwards. Very Happy

Get my mum onto the subject of David, she thinks he is absolutely wonderful. She thinks they all are, as do I, but David is for her. Very Happy

I must tell you about my grandma now, she thinks Urs is wonderful and she also likes Carlos , my soon to be sister in law thinks Seb is devine and another friend of mine, she has jumped from Urs to David. She went to the Wednesday show this friend of mine and she was told me that she thinks David is just wonderful. Very Happy She probably does hold a candle to all of them, but David is for her also.

My goodness the man next to me, I just do not know why he was there, truthfully he didn't get into their performances until they performed "Somewhere"- I suppose better late than never that he got into their performance, but oh well what can you do. My mum and the ladies on the other side of me (including me of course), we were all mesmerized by everything. Very Happy


I was getting strange looks from him all night, I paid good money for my seat- even though it was upstairs and I am going to enjoy every moment as it is the only one I am coming to (unfortunately), so he had to put up with me gushing at everything. If he didn't want to be there, he should have gone to the pub or the casino and picked up his wife later on from the venue. Guess you cannot please everyone.


The people next to me at Patrizio's concert, well the people were all having an incredible time next to me and it made his concert even more enjoyable, I had some lovely Italian ladies near me and they were right into his performance from go to woah, but I have to say they were anxious for Mark to finish and for Patri to hit the stage. A bit like me I suppose.


I most certainly am a Mario Frangoulis fan too, he is wonderful, the only Cd of his that elludes me is Fergari Erovtomeno.

Ok it has been confirmed by Dan's dad on his forum, it is this Sunday evening- the Australian Wallabies V England match- it has been heavily advertised anyway ( the match I mean) esp last night. On Channel 7.

He is looking forward immensely to it and according to his dad, there will be a few harmony singers behind him also. The telecast begins at 7.30pm and the game begins at 8pm, so just before they begin, when the players are all out on the ground, that is when Dan will be performing.

Ok according to his dad, Dan enjoyed performing the National anthem immensely, said it was a wonderful experience for him.

Wow I am just thinking about how many people were at that match, it looked like it was a sell out. Telstra Stadium is absolutely huge. And it being telecast into the UK, New Zealand saw it as well apparently. So a huge, huge audience there was.

I had a tour round there a while back, not long after the Olympics were over, awesome place. Have to get back there again sometime for another look around. I have been to Sydney many times ( but I get lost, unless I am heading for Circular Quay or the Opera House), we got lost just trying to get out to Homebush.

I decided to watch the whole match and quite glad I did, although Rugby will never take pride of place over my beloved Aussie Rules.


Jenny is your Uni, right near where Dan's is. OMG, you might see him round sometime. I have no idea where the AIM is, I don't know Sydney well enough.


I remember last time I saw Dan, he was talking to us about how he would be attending Courtney's (from series 2)wedding, so most of us wrote messages to congratulate Courtney and Jane on their upcoming nuptials and I think someone forwarded those messages onto Dan to pass onto Courtney at the ceremony. For those who don't know Courtney was a fellow Idol contestant from that series (actually he was another of my faves) and he Dan and Marty were great mates ( called themselves "The Three Amigos").

I have the Cd of this, so I am going to have to go and check it out asap.

I saw the above on Saturday at our IMAX theatre, it is quite stunning, but those theatres can leave you a little dizzy, but still I leaned back on the headrest, that helps a lot. It runs for about 45-50 mins.
Not enough of Mario Frangoulis's beautiful voice though. I am still waiting for Fergari Erovtomeno to be available from the Greek shop for me to purchase, it has been ordered. It is the only one of Mario's that i do not have to date. I don't have SID DVD either, but I don't think it would work on my DVD player.

You know when I saw Daniel and Chanel at Capers Theatre, I had no idea of what songs they were actually going to sing.
Because I didn't ask, not even the people who went to the show the evening before. I wanted to be surprised. I knew I would love whatever they ended up singing. His dad said he couldn't believe those two know so many old standards in songs.

I found I ended up knowing every song, they both sang, although many not by name. They were mostly the songs Chanel performed.

Thanks Yvonne - have checked out his site and he does have an awesome voice. Like the rat-pack jazz style - similar to Mark Sholtez and Patrizio Buanne... definitely liking the new styles coming out What a Face

there could be more stuff happening that is great for Daniel Belle also,(music wise) his dad has alluded to it, so if I hear anything that you can go and see or perhaps watch on tv or even hear, I promise to let you all know.

He did perform along with some others and a big orchestra recently, his dad said, at something that the AIM in Sydney held.

Yvonne has already mentioned this in Kane's section, but I thought i'd just re mention it in this section too as it seems to be relevant to the 'rumours' stage

1. Kane is rumoured to be touring with katherine Jenkins when she does her Australian series of concerts

2. next year, Australia will get to see UK supergroup the OperaBabes in action....

here's hoping those rumours are true!

I have some more great news about Daniel Belle, he is going to be performing the Aussie national anthem before the Socceroos v Kuwait match at Aussie Stadium in Sydney on August 16. I hope it is on tv, my guess would be SBS. Anyway it is pencilled into my diary as a must watch. Way to go Dan. He did such a wonderful job of the anthem last time.

There is other good stuff happening with him at the AIM, he has got a big part in a production at the school, so I feel really pleased for him.

Just booked tickets to the Katherine Jenkins' Sydney show.. had to pay an extra $25 for each ticket because it's the pre-sale but oh well, Row 5 seats, so I'm happy.

If anyone else is going, let me know, maybe we can meet up before hand for drinks?
