Fundraiser aims to hit right note
CAROLLYN Rhodes-Thompson aspired to be a singer as a child but discouragement from a friend made her forget the dream at an early age.
But fifteen years ago, the Dianella resident took singing lessons and has been singing live for the past five years.
Rhodes-Thompson started singing as a duo with James Irvine before they formed the band Midnight Velvet.
The cabaret, jazz and pop singer then started performing solo with backing tracks.
She is the headline act at the Cancer Support WA Fundraising Dinner this Sunday at the Swan Yacht Club, Fremantle.
Rhodes-Thompson said the Cottesloe-based cancer service did a great job and she especially supported its natural methods of treating cancer.
“I’m interested in wellness and right into naturopathy so any way I can support people with cancer who want to go down that path is great,” she said.
Cancer Support WA provides support for people with cancer and their families.
Tickets for the dinner are $45 and include entertainment.
Call Di Watts on 0418 904 557 or Jan Pettorino on 9446 7296.
