Duet: Summer Wine

My thanks to Ursula, who joined me for this song; most well known as being sung by Nancy Sinatra. I have to say that I was literally blown away by Ursula’s voice, when I first heard her. That she chose to sing with someone as unskilled in this art, as I, is beyond me. I…

Duet: My Baby Just Cares for Me

Who doesn’t love this cheerful song, most famously sung by Nina Simone? Singing with Angela. My thanks to Angela, who joins me in the following music video.

Duet: My Heart Will Go On

Singing with Rachan. My thanks to Rachan for joining me for this beautiful Celine Dion song. What can one say about one of the most iconic motion picture soundtracks of all time?

Duet: Everybody Hurts

My thanks to Pamela for joining me for this song by R.E.M. I love Pamela’s smoky voice and her authenticity. This is a beautiful song and not always an easy one to listen to, for it reminds us of withers our own lowest times or the despair felt by others. The strong message of hope…

Duet: Radioactive

Singing with Caio. This powerful song, by Imagine Dragons, is one of my favourites and so a joy to sing. From a Parkinson’s perspective, it requires a clipped, crisp and controlled presentation. This is not always easy for me, but here I’m pleased with the outcome. My thanks to Caio for joining me so perfectly,…

Duet: You Raise Me Up

Singing with John. It’s always a joy to put my old language skills to the test. Here, I sing with my German friend, John, whom I thank for joining me for this duet. From a Parkinson’s perspective , my cognitive ability is tested by challenging myself to sing in another language. Here’s the link to…

Duet: Fix You

Singing with Lou. I was joined by Lou, for the cover of ‘Fix You’ by one of the greatest bands ever; Coldplay. I would recommend that you check out Coldplay singing this live at their concert in Sao Paolo. You’ll find their video at You Tube. That performance is truly one of the best of…

Duet: Can’t Help Falling in Love

I was surprised, today, to discover that an official ‘Smule.com Ambassador’ had sent me an invitation to join her for a duet. I never expected to be on the list of any of the official team at Smule.com I was delighted to find that the duet choice was ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’, a song…

Duet: Slow, Acoustic Budapest

Singing with Kathryn. George Ezra recently created a very ‘catchy’ song, entitled Budapest. Do check his music video out at You Tube. I decided to give this song a try when I came across a music video by a talented young singer on Smule,com karaoke site. Her name is Kathryn. My thanks to Kathryn for…

Duet: Summertime

Singing with #theonlyinfini. This classic song, by George Gershwin, is etched in my mind from growing up with parents who loved music of this type and era. In fact, I too share that love. In this video, I was joined by a young woman who has the most astonishing, sultry voice. I do not know…
