MY PER­FECT SUN­DAY

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

My per­fect Sun­day is sim­ple – a re­laxed day with fam­ily all around.

When I’m not tour­ing, noth­ing beats tak­ing it easy, be­ing around great peo­ple and tasty food!

First off break­fast with my hus­band and daugh­ter at Ban­ners in Lon­don’s Crouch End fol­lowed by a stroll at Alexan­dra Palace (above) – the view’s amaz­ing.

Then we would head to a ser­vice at Hill­song Church.

In the late af­ter­noon, we would go over to my par­ents’ house, it’s al­ways com­fort­ing to be back at the house I grew up in.

My brother and his fam­ily would be there along with my grandma, aunts, un­cles and cousins.

There is al­ways so much laugh­ter and sto­ries and of course, won­der­ful food def­i­nitely some BBQ jerk chicken and plan­tain there.

Not for­get­ting the per­fect mu­sic se­lec­tion on vinyl from my dad. The room is filled with so much love. I find it is al­ways a great time to share ex­pe­ri­ences and re­flect on my mu­si­cal jour­neys.

My fam­ily are a won­der­ful sup­port.

Yolanda’s al­bum Love Pol­i­tics War is out now.
