Songs4U - An Introduction Updated 24-Jan-17 | Logon (Songs4U members only)
Songs4U is a self-contained musical trio of singers performing a variety of songs backed by synthesiser (orchestral keyboard) accompaniment. Our group is based in Nottingham and can perform anywhere within a reasonable journey time from our base including during the working day.
Songs4U perform a variety of different types of music but we specialise in singing music from the West End musicals and films. We also have a small repertoire of light classics, easy listening, light pop, standards, country music etc.
Songs4U can support private concerts, business events, celebrations and anniversaries, charity fund raising events etc. Mostly our programmes are made up of collections of songs from our extensive repertoire but occasionally we have delivered customised concerts to suit a particular audience need.
Our programme does not particularly include music for dancing or disco so at a wedding, anniversary or birthday party for example we would typically be providing interim contrasting entertainment as an extra supplement to a disco or live band.
Each of us has worked with many musical societies in and around the Nottingham area for many years now and also in a semi-professional capacity in local clubs and venues during our past.
Cheryl in particular also sings for other musical companies in the area and can be seen regularly on stage. The personal links beneath the photograph will take you to our profiles.
Christmassy Concert in aid of Children's Brain Tumour Research Christmas Appeal
We have volunteered to be ambassadors for the Children's Brain Tumour Christmas Appeal which is aiming to raise £125,000 to support ground-breaking research into ependymomas, which are the second most common malignant brain tumour in children and adolescents. The primary aims are to improve childhood ependymoma survival rates and to decrease the side effects caused by existing treatments, thereby benefitting all children and teenagers diagnosed with an ependymoma in the future.
We are endeavouring to raise £1,000 towards the overall total by putting on a Christmassy Concert at the Ruddington Methodist Church, corner of Church St./Charles St. Ruddington, Nottm. NG11 6HA at 7.30 pm. Admission will be £5 and all proceeds will go to Children's Brain Tumour Research.
If you would also like to come to our concert then I'm sure you will enjoy a fabulous evening of good music knowing that every penny taken in ticket money will be going towards this excellent cause. If unfortunately you can't make it to our concert, or would prefer to simply make a donation then this can be done through our JustGiving page. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Here is our story behind the appeal...
Four years ago our granddaughter, Eloise Mills was admitted to Nottingham Queen's Medical Centre (QMC) for removal of a brain tumour the size of a walnut, surrounded by a cyst the size of a satsuma. Fortunately the tumour proved to be benign. She received excellent care from all of the nurses and consultants and, after a meeting with Professor Walker we agreed to help with research into children's brain tumours and to help raise awareness so that other children can benefit from her upsetting experience.
Eloise recovered well and has blossomed into a happy and healthy 12-year old with a fun-loving temperament.
However it was discovered that a small fragment of the original tumour remained and as Eloise has grown then so has the remnants of the tumour to an extent where a further operation to remove it is deemed advisable. She will once again be undergoing a brain operation in the last week of November.
