My youngest daughter, Kamarane, absolutely loves the theatre and the film The Wizard of Oz, so the first time I took her to see Wicked – that brilliant musical based around the Witches of Oz – it was no surprise that she talked about it non-stop for weeks.
The organisers of the musical created a competition, giving girls a chance to sing Defying Gravity (the staple song for the show) on stage at the West End. They invited Kammie along to be the featured example of the prize for entering the competition, and of course she leapt at the chance.
I don’t think she minded not entering the competition. She had a brilliant time on that stage and she sang her heart out!
