I've always loved Madonna ever since the age of 6, but the first signs of my future career came when my mother proudly tied lace into my hair, painted the infamous beauty spot on my face and entered me into the all important fancy dress competition at Butlins Bognor Regis. From that moment on I was hooked on Madonna and as a child of the 80's she soon became my Pop Idol.
Throughout my life I have always been a performer. Attending The Sylvia Young Theatre School from the age of 11 and later securing a much sought after place studying musical theatre at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music London.
My career thus far has seen me cover a wide spectrum of the industry, from supporting Showaddywaddy on their ‘Hey Rock n’n Roll’ Tour in a female vocal harmony group named 'The Corsettes' to taking the lead role as the Live singing voice of Pocohontas for Disneyland Paris to being a backing vocalist on Royal Command Performances working alongside such artistes as Sir Cliff Richard, Liza Minnelli, Olivia Newton John Tommy Steele and Elton John to name but a few...However this wasn't my first time working with the’ Rocket Man’ as I appeared with him in 2004 at Wembley Arena, Birmingham NEC and the Royal Albert Hall.
My break into the tribute world came when I joined a well known Abba Tribute Act which toured Europe culminating in performances in Shanghai. This experience gave me the opportunity to realise my childhood fantasy and don the beauty spot once more.
My Tribute to Madonna Ciccone is exactly that, a tribute. I love what I do, and I am so fortunate to be able to earn my living by using my performance skills, training and attention to detail to pay homage to the greatest Female Recording Artiste of all time.
I just hope I look as good as Madonna when I am 57!
