There’s nothing like a good sing along. Better than karaoke, Friday I’m in Love is a monthly sing along event hosted in the heart of Camden, as well as other UK city destinations. This popular club night not only gives you the opportunity to shake a leg, but also to sing along in the crowd to all sorts of classics and guilty pleasures.
Last Friday, Britain’s original singalong club night hosted the Camden Singalong Spring Ball in association with the Mayor of Camden in aid of The Amy Winehouse Foundation. Fans got to sing some of their favourite Amy songs including Back to Black and Rehab with live music played by the very skilled FiiL band.
The event took place at Camden’s Purple Turtle and featured performances from some much loved names from music & entertainment including our very own Mitch Winehouse singing ‘Fly me to the Moon’, the Mayor of Camden himself spinning some tunes on the decks before his live performance of ‘Parklife’ and a beautiful rendition of ‘Love is a Losing Game’ by the very talented Jimmy Valentine.
The founder of Friday I’m in Love, Jayne Savva who first devised the concept of Friday I’m in Love gave us her thoughts on the night: “Friday I’m In Love is all about celebrating great music so it’s an honour to be raising funds and awareness in honour of one of the greatest artists of modern times”.
Mat Morrisroe, who runs the night with Jayne and also plays drums in the band, said: “What the foundation does to help young people discover their potential through music resonates with me as a musician. The inclusive goals of the AWF are perfectly in tune with the spirit of FiiL Club and we are very proud to be helping Amy’s legacy”.
Mitch Winehouse loves a good sing along too and gave his gratitude for their support:
Mitch said: “We love the theme of FiiL and the factthat they got everyone up singing, there’s nothing better than a good old sing song! We are very grateful for their support, we were sure the SpringSingalong Ball would be a great success”.
Amy’s gift was music and we feel proud at the foundation to be following in her footsteps doing as much fundraising as we can through music, raising funds to empower young peoples lives.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all those that came down and supported us and we hope to work with FiiL again in the future!
Summer is just around the corner (we think) and the next few months for us will be very exciting… Stay posted on our blog to see the exciting things we get up to this summer and on how you can get involved too.
