Since she began singing lessons at the age of eight years old, Faith’s love for music has grown as powerful as her voice.
In the early years she focused on developing her voice to suit a pop style, but it wasn’t until she reached the age of thirteen that she added classical and opera to her extensive vocal range. Opera and Classical songs have since taken over as her preferred genres and she carefully chooses pieces that are both popular and suitable for her performances.
It’s certainly not unusual for someone to suddenly develop a love and understanding for classical music but Faith has taken it to heart and treats every performance with the respect and musicality each song deserves.
Faith also has the rare ability to raise ‘goosebumps’ during her performances, where she takes original song versions and makes them her own by adapting the song to best showcase her voice. She draws a large amount of influence from her female soprano idols such as Elina Garanca, Katherine Jenkins, Maria Callas and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and she aspires to achieve the same level of success.
Faith is constantly looking for ways to challenge herself and has covered some of the most influential songs and ballads including arias such as George Bizet’s ‘Habanera’ from the opera Carmen, La Donna e Mobile from Rigoletto, Sarah McLachlan’s ‘Arms of an Angel’ and Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s ‘Time to Say Goodbye’ and the incredible ‘Granada’ to name but a few.
Faith has recently become a prolific composer and her extraordinary piece for choir and organ ‘Gloria’ having been chosen to be performed at Derby Cathedral and also for a special Evensong at St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Music is now firmly the passion and driving force for this extraordinary and gifted young lady.
