Why The Sats love having family and friends in the crowd

una-healy-parisHello everyone,

Hope you’re having a great week. I’m in Paris with the Sats at the moment, we’re having a fabulous time, it’s such a glam city. Can’t wait to tell you more about it next time.

At the weekend, we had a fun family dinner with my parents who were visiting and on Sunday we went to watch Ben playing rugby. It was a big game for his team Northampton Saints and I’m happy to say they won and that they’re through to the finals of the premiership.

The Sats are performing at Radio One’s Big Weekend in Derry-Londonderry on the same day so sadly I won’t be able to see him play. But of course I’m looking forward to being up on stage with the girls and it’ll be the first time we perform our new single Gentleman so that’s very exciting.

Aoife and I watched the match from one of the boxes because it’s safer for her up there than down with the crowd. She’s still only tiny and not quite ready for that yet so we were up in a box with all the girlfriends, wives and children from the other team, Saracens. We didn’t wear our Saints shirts this time because we were mixing with the enemy and I thought it might’ve been a bit cheeky if we’d turned up in our Northampton colours.

I always used to watch Ben playing rugby in the stands, I love the atmosphere down    there. When Aoife gets a bit bigger and can sit on my lap for the duration of the game I’ll take her closer to the action.

I’m hoping she’ll get into watching her Daddy play rugby but at the moment she’s still too little to understand what he’s really doing. Even so, I know that Ben absolutely loves us being in the crowd and knowing that we’re there to support him.


Despite the fact that he can’t see us, I know that it’s really good mentally for him to know that we’re watching. It’s the same for me when I’m singing with the girls. In fact, all of us love having family and friends in the crowd watching.

Thanks so much for all your comments about our new single Gentleman, I’m really glad to hear you’re enjoying it. It’s a really fun track, has anyone managed to learn the lyrics yet?

Speak to you soon.

Love from Una xx

  3. Hi Una, I love the new single Gentleman, you girls just keep getting better and better. You are my absolute idol, i’ve loved you since day one, I’m also Irish, from Dublin!! You are so beautiful and talented and yet you seem so natural and down to earth, I just love you haha!! I downloaded all the Saturdays albums onto my phone, so I love listening to every song while I’m out and about……I just love your voice, it really stands out, it’s just incredible! Please do more Irish dates this year, cant wait to dance my socks off again :) love fiona xxxxx oh and big congratulations on your number 1 with “What About Us”, you girls should have had a number 1 years ago and a few of them at that, but I’m so thrilled it’s happened! I can relate to every song you girls have ever done but I really feel it with What About Us, it just explains exactly how I’m feeling, there’s a guy I’ve fancied for a year now and the lyrics just convey everything i think and feel, like “why are we waiting, boy it’s now or never, put my mind at ease and tell me what about us”, I cant stop listening to it!!!
