In April of this year we spent four days in London with the Band of The Welsh Guards. We were based at Wellington Barracks where we recorded a number of ‘backing tracks’ with the Band for the New Zealand based professional singer Rebecca Nelson.
The talented young kiwi musician enlisted as a reservist in The Royal New Zealand Navy in 2013 to serve her country in voice as the official singer for the Royal New Zealand Navy Band. She has, in that capacity, performed throughout the world at many commemorative events.
Rebecca has since returned to New Zealand where she has completed the vocal tracks. Next month she will release her CD ‘Reverence’, initially in New Zealand with a UK launch here in the New Year.
Proceeds from sales in New Zealand will be donated to TE KIWI MĀIA charity – The Courageous Kiwi Charitable Trust and in this country to Help for Heroes.
