Grainne McCarthy got married last month.
And it just so happened that the song to which she walked down the aisle was a Stevie Wonder song. So when I asked her to take part in the theme night she asked me straight away to sing that very song – I Believe (When I Fall in Love).
She sang it on Friday and was amazing, but on Saturday her new husband was in the wings and she elevated her performance to another level.
And the first thing any singer must do is to believe.
Vocal ability, patter, stage presence, mic technique – none of it matters if you don’t believe. Because if you don’t, we won’t.
