4TH JANUARY

A MESSAGE FROM HELEN

It has been a most interesting year in view of the fact that I've stopped all those long concert journeys, with lots of early morning returns to home at two or three in the morning!

Travelling apart, I do miss seeing all your friendly faces, and I also miss my wonderful Band, and the sometimes very silly soundchecks!

I don't have to miss my sound crew, as they are with me on my Gospel Evenings, and, as most of you are probaby aware, Chrissy, who was my roadie on the Pop & Jazz Dates, looks after me on those evenings. She also plays a neat guitar, and sings beautifully!

It's been great to meet some of you at the Gospel Evenings, and I hope that will continue. I have to say that there is not the pressure on me that the Concert Evenings brought, and if there are long journeys, we usually travel there the day before. That wasn't always possible with the Concerts..

I hope that this year will be the beginning of new and varied things- we have had a lot of enquiries already!

Even though I was exhausted after 42 years of touring, that doesn't mean that I won't be singing any more- John is beginning to organise a new Jazz Album, and I am waiting for the green light to go ahead with a new Gospel Album .

It's hard to believe that over a year has gone by since the last gig at Wimbourne. John and I had a holiday in Spain that Christmas, it was good to get away from the winter chill, but we came back to a house that was freezing cold! The boiler had packed up , and we froze for a few days until the new boiler arrived. It was ironic that, after all the years of John shouting out "not bad for an old boiler!" when I was signing CDs after the shows, that we should end up with a new boiler, as soon as I finished touring!!

I am seriously considering updating my autobiography, originally published in 1993, as so much has happened in the intervening years. I think I have found the right person to help me. He is a very dear friend of ours called David White. He is a writer and a journalist par excellence, and has written quite a few articles about me in the past, and by the way, his brother is Terry Waite.

I hope you enjoyed listening to my first proper presenting job on Radio 2, with the Dinah Washington Story- I would be very happy to do more presenting, if it should come along.

Thank you again for all your support over my long career. The arduous concert touring is over, but I hope there are a few more chapters to be written in the future!

Lots of love,

Helen.
