On This Day, 24 July 2015, Alfie Boe Sang…

… his new, original song, Against the Tide, at the final date of his mini summer tour, Leeds Millennium Square:

Prior to writing this, I hadn’t listened to the song for a while and yet again, I’m reminded how much I love it.   Judging by the way he has the audience singing away by the end, I’m not alone in this opinion. Wouldn’t it be great if he recorded it one day, although with the next album being the Michael Ball collaboration, I fear we won’t hear a recorded version just yet.  By the way, even if you’re not a fan of this particular song, I’m confident there’s plenty in the video to keep everyone happy.

Against the Tide – New Song from Alfie Boe

Hello everyone!

Bit late to the party with this one but just come back from holiday and listened to Alfie’s new song for the first time – wow!  Just love it…but then you didn’t really think I’d say anything else did you?  If you haven’t yet listened, here it is:

I chose a cracker of a concert to miss out on as well!  I followed the reports from holiday and the song title competition run by Alfie via twitter – an apt title chosen by Sonia, Annie, Sue and Rebecca, well done ladies.

Updated the YouTube page with all the new videos too – thanks Linda as always.  Click here to go to the page.
