Whether it’s gigging around the country, singing vocals on a drum & bass album in Japan, or lending her vocals to radio jingles, Denise Morgan is always finding an opportunity to sing. But now she wants to be selling out tours.
“I’m really looking forward to being judged on my voice – things are far too much about image these days.” -Denise
34 year old Denise started writing songs when she studied at university and believes singing is what she was born to do. She’s so dedicated to the cause that two weeks after giving birth, she was back out gigging – now that’s commitment!
In her Blind Audition for The Voice UK, she sang ‘Love Song’ by Sara Bareilles and sent Sir Tom into a spin (in a good way). Now, she’s competing in The Voice of Ireland where, in her Blind Audition she wowed all four judges into turning round to persuade her to join their teams as she performed her own composition “If You Love Me Say You Love Me”. Denise has chosen Bressie as her mentor and is now through to the Live Battles next weekend.
Denise is a Full-time single Mummy and part-time content writer for the web, and is performing live gigs both in the UK and in Ireland. Denise is hoping that the voice of Ireland helps her get exposure for the ideas she has for new TV shows.
Denise took time out of her busy filming and performance schedules to accept an invitation from her cousin, Julie Salisbury (Head of Performing Arts) to come into Blacon High School and perform for the Year 11 Performing Arts students who are preparing for the audition element of their exam. Denise delivered an informal workshop, demonstrating how breathing techniques could support performance in auditions and help calm those examination nerves, and chaired a Q&A session where students could ask independent questions relating to their own personal audition pieces. She was treated to performances from 2 of our students: illusions and close-hand card tricks from Nathan Burgess and a stand-up comedy routine from Leon Hinchliffe.
Students enjoyed the performance, workshop and advice that Denise shared with them and felt inspired to apply some of the techniques and suggestions to their own work as they prepare for their final examination. Their auditions will showcase a range of skills including singing, dance routines, acting and specialty acts.
