The Sats can’t wait to meet Rochelle and Marvin’s baby girl
The Sats are so excited that Rochelle has had her baby! It’s a little girl named Alaia-Mai. We’re over the moon for her and Marvin and can’t wait to meet her.
We’d been waiting for a call to hear the baby had arrived for a while. Every time my phone rang I thought it was baby news. The last few days we hadn’t heard from her much so we were all thinking it was very soon so we’re delighted that their little girl is here and well.
The Sats were performing at the Doncaster Races on Saturday. It was great fun, we’re doing quite a few racecourse concerts this summer. They’re great because there’s always a big crowd, at Doncaster there were about 9,000 so the atmosphere is electric. The people in the audience are a real mix so it’s really fascinating as a performer. You get the fans who have bought tickets specifically to see you and then there’s the race goers who hang around afterwards to catch the show. Lots of them were wearing fascinators which is quite novel for one of our gigs and they looked really glam! We sang What About Us and it proved a real hit with the crowd who were singing it back to us which gave a really cool echo effect.
I found time to watch Eurovision over the weekend, it’s a really special show to me because I performed on it with Ireland in 2006 as a backing singer for Brian Kennedy. I watched the competition when I was little â€” Ireland were really successful back then. We came last this year â€” I was so shocked, Ryan Dolan is such a good singer and the song was great. Bonnie was great too. I’m a big fan of hers and power ballads in general. I supported her at a gig in Ireland once so I’ve got a bit of history with her too. She’s a lovely lady.
I thought the general level was incredible this year. I’m a massive fan of the whole spectacle â€” not just the singing but the staging, the dancing and their costumes too. I remember being really wowed by performing on the Eurovision. It’s such a huge event with millions of people watching so it’s an awesome thing to be a part of.
Speak to you all soon.
