Lucy Thomas has begun to publish a regular e-mail newsletter! She first noted her performance at the ALFA Raising Music Festival at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester (see post above). She sang “I’ll Never Love Again” from the film “A Star is Born”.
This week Lucy released “A Million Dreams” from the movie “The Greatest Showman” on Spotify (not sure if the app is required)...
Lucy Thomas’s second CD is now available for pre-order through her website. The digital download will be released on April 24. and the autographed physical album will be out on May 29. www.musicglue.com/lucythomas/
Amazon US customers can also pre-order the digital download version, out April 24 as in the UK.
I have encouraged Lucy’s followers on Twitter to help support Lucy on this Friday the 24th by sharing pics of themselves wearing their Lucy t-shirts, and showing off their Lucy mugs and copies of the first album. All of which can be purchased at the above link.
Here are the songs on Lucy’s second album, Encore...mostly movie song and musical covers.
Thanks Joe, that's great news I was hoping Lucy's new album would be available as a CD. I have pre-ordered, but am not sure if I can wait until the end of May, so I might just have to buy the download this week as well.
It looks like I might have neglected to mention it here, but I saw Lucy in the Calon FM fundraising concert last October, and she was the standout performer for me in a host of fantastic talent. Somebody wrote this in a review:-
The youngest performer, 15 year old Lucy Thomas gave me my biggest “Wow!” of the night. (Not that the others weren’t great, but I had heard most of them before and knew what to expect.) I loved Lucy’s debut album ‘Premiere’ and have enjoyed her subsequent YouTube video releases, but I was unprepared for the depth of passion and emotional engagement in her performance from one so young. Starting with ‘She Used to be Mine’ from ‘Waitress’, delivered in a gorgeous, almost sultry voice, and going on to add some real grit in ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ from ‘A Star is Born’, Lucy’s final song was ‘I Know Where I’ve Been’ from ‘Hairspray’.
I know that classical crossover composer Chris Broom has been writing some material for Lucy, and I was hoping to hear one of those songs, but I guess that can wait for another time.
That is a great review John! (wink) And Lucy's duet of "The Prayer" with Hercules Smith was incredible! I made a list of Lucy’s songs by date and am working on a lyrics document for my own use. Good info, thank you. Lucy sang “I Know Where I’ve Been” last month for her school leaving day for her fellow Year 11's. She sat mock GCSE exams earlier in the school year, so those results along with other class grades will have to suffice. I asked if she was moving onto sixth form but got no reply.
Edit...i see someone has just uploaded Lucy's turn and duet on YouTube!
Set of three...
Last weekend Lucy surprised a friend of her family with a birthday serenade, complete with a set of speakers in his drive! Lucy sang two songs, and her little sister contributed with an amazing song as well.
You can view three videos from the birthday serenade as well as the school performance on Lucy’s Twitter page @lucythomasmusic (under Media).
As well as today being the release day of Lucy’s second album, her Spring Email Newsletter is also out.
In it, she send everyone her best wishes during this difficult time. Although music is not really a priority now, Lucy hopes it will perhaps help to raise your spirits.
She added that the start of this year was focused on preparing for her GCSE’s (General Certificate of Secondary Education) This is an exam based on a specific school subject taken by Year 11 students (10th grade in the USA) and from what I understand it is much more difficult than the closest thing we have in America, the SAT test. Unfortunately for Lucy her exams were cancelled and the school year was cut short by four months. Their practice GCSEs (called mock exams) will suffice. I was pleased that Lucy will continue her education next Autumn at a sixth form college for the next two years - Years 12 and 13 (or lower sixth and upper sixth). In America, 11th and 12th grade. Both years are focused on several advanced subjects culminating in receiving an A Level qualification (similar to a college entrance exam In the states).
Lucy concluded her newsletter by saying she has still been able to continue to work on her singing and hopes to share new songs very soon.
