A Lullaby For A Royal Prince

Earlier this year, during Children's Hospice Week, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Naomi House Children's Hospice in Hampshire.  I used to visit Naomi House when I was very wee.  Although that more than a decade ago, staff have kept in touch and like reading about my achievements.  Following the Royal visit I was contacted by the editor of Eduzine, the brilliant magazine that celebrates young people's achievements and who were covering the Duchess' visit.  They asked me to write a lullaby for the Royal Baby.

When I was a baby I loved listening to Mozart (I still do) so I chose a piece of music I thought would sound good as a lullaby and then I wrote my lyrics.  I had to include two alternatives, as I didn't know if the baby would be a boy or a girl.

You can read my lullaby and also all about the Duchess' visit to Naomi House in the latest edition of Eduzine:-

The magazine has also published my short story Jamie and the Ceeabs as the first chapter of their never ending story......

If all this is not exciting enough, Urban Voices UK are now working with Eduzine to record my lullaby in various musical styles.  it will be released to raise money for brilliant charities working to improve the lives of children & young people.
