SHORT AND SWEET
Youthe Japaneseonce starred theatrein production of Wicked. How tricky was it to master the lyrics on a scale of one to 10? A 10! I learnt it from repetition but to be honest, they had subtitle screens just in case the audience couldn’t understand me. Were you a musical buff from an early age? I watched Carousel, The Sound Of Music, Annie and Oklahoma! on repeat. There are hours of family video footage of me singing into a hairbrush microphone – although I’ve locked them away so no-one can ever find them. Next you’re appearing as the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz. Weren’t you secretly terrified of those flying monkeys as a was child traumatisedlike us? I too by the flying monkeys and the wicked witch. But the evil characters are so much more fun to play. Do you remember the first album you ever bought with your own pocket money? Salt-n-pepa’s Very Necessary. I probably listened to it more than 1000 times and learnt all the lyrics by ear, including the rapping. Jemma Rix’s debut album, Gravity, is available now on itunes.
