Brown is most well known as the featured vocalist on Bizarre Inc's two hits "I'm Gonna Get You" (1992) and "Took My Love" (1993), and as the featured vocalist on Motiv8's top ten UK track from 1994, "Rockin' for Myself".
We were honored for her to be with us this night and belt her heart out! Thanks Angie!!
"Circle of Life"is a song from Disney's 1994 animated film The Lion King. Composed by Elton John, with lyrics by Tim Rice. We had the pleasure of casts past and present (and some have not even been in the show). They came along to sing this iconic song to show their own appreciation of our friend Nigel, to say it was moving is an understatement. To be in the company of such talented people took our breath away!
On arriving in the UK, Sandra was taken in by a commune in Kings Cross in London. Each night she would bask in the red glow that shone from the porch lights in the front of the house. As she grew older she would help to feed the household that had taken her in, and it was here she developed her signature dish of rice and peas. By the time Sandra was 16 years old, Sandra could take 3 cocks at a time, and sold second-hand watches that she "acquired" to help make ends meet. She finally saved up enough money, and could eventually afford to fly her mum and dad to the UK to join her. She moved out of the commune and in with her parents in Lower Swiss Cottage
