I'm a huge Kate Voegele fan. I've been in love with her voice since I first heard her on One Tree Hill ages ago. I think she is so talented and absolutely gorgeous. I always promised myself that if she ever came to London, I'd buy tickets without giving it a second thought...and I did.
She played 'The Borderline', a really small and intimate venue in Central london, on Monday night and I was so excited to go see her.
Wearing black skinny trousers from H&M, My French Connection Waistcoat, that I'm wearing EVERYWHERE and the T-Shirt is from New Look. (I also had a jacket & coat because it was FREEZING!!).
My shoes are a pair of heels from New Look. I got these courtesy of a New Look gift card. They were: a)on sale, b) last pair and c) in my size. I also had a lot more left in my gift card than I originally thought, so I paid very little for these babies. If all thats not fate, I don't know what is.
Also, I just dyed my hair jet black. I don't know if you can really notice it. I quite like it. I've dyed my hair various different colours over the years, but I'm always happiest with jet jet black.
Kate, herself, was spectacular!! Her voice was absolutely beautiful and her cover of 'Hallelujah', was sung so beautifully and so full of emotion. Very few artists sing that well live, and I'd recommend you all to go and see her, if you ever have a chance. And, the band playing with her were all gorgeous. And because the venue was quite small, you really did feel that you were really close.
I have a great story about the evening as well. Because the venue was quite small, all the managers and 'important people' were just hanging around near the crowds. We were standing in a great place, and there was a random drunk guy right next to us. He eventually started hitting on us and we kinda played along. He then said that he worked with the band and offered to introduce us to the guys after the gig, and he did!!
Thats me with the Keyboard player and the drummer/percussionist. The guys from the band were absolutely lovely, as well as really good looking. We spent ages with them. The poor guys had to listen to my pathetic attempts at flirting, lol.
We were also lucky enough to meet Kate Voegele right towards the end. She was so nice and a great person to meet.
