Royal performance

Royal performance
 

In the future when I’m old and grey and people ask me “so where were you when Prince William got married?” I shall become all misty eyed and tell them the following: During the wedding of the century I was singing at a birthday party in West Hampsted dressed in a vintage 1940’s RAF uniform! I was contacted by a lady (Joan) in South Africa who was unable to attend her daughters 30th birthday party.  Adrienne was organising a royal wedding themed celebration to mark the occasion.

I arrived slightly perspiring in my heavy (but gorgeously smart!) outfit and surprised Adrienne while the William and Kate were mid way through their nuptials and a giant flat screen TV. Thank God for Sky Plus (other brands are available!) as her husband, Saul, pressed pause. I listened to the service while driving and was very keen to see the dress so I cheekily asked if they could rewind it a little so I could have a sneaky peek!

Tristan Lee - Singagram in uniformThe flat was crowded with about 50 people and as Adrienne and Saul were Jewish the buffet looked spectacular.  I had skipped breakfast in order to squeeze into my uniform and I must say I found the spectacular buffet rather distracting especially the home made muffins with little union jack flags poking out! I commenced my performance by reading a birthday message from Adrienne’s parents who sent their love and apologised for their absence and also explained that the royal couple asked me to send their best wishes too!

Even though Adrienne and Saul only got married a month ago  Joan had asked me to sing “Where did our love go?” by the Supremes! An odd choice I agree, dear viewers, but what the client wants the client gets! I did my very best to jazz the song up by singing it in a cabaret style and also by marching around in a military fashion and saluting dramatically at
irregular intervals! ‘Brown eyed girl’ and ‘Simply the best’ followed and I concluded my royal command performance with a rousing chorus of happy birthday! Until next time loyal singagram devotees!
