Here at The Hits Hawke’s Bay HQ we are thrilled to be supporting Christmas At the Park this year on December 3.

It’s going to such a great night at the Mitre 10 Sports Parkwith heaps of family fun and entertainm­ent and of course non-other than the legendary Sir Dave Dobbyn singing us into Christmas! I can’t wait.

The only unfortunat­e thing is that it’s the exact same night asmy tap dancing recital with Dance Express. So sadly I won’t be dancing withmy friends, but Iwill still be on stage, just adifferent stage.

Adam and myself are working at the event as MC sand we’ve just announced thisweek that a bucket list moment has come true for me.

Weare also going to be singing on stage with the Soul Singers Choir! And when I say singing, Adam has advised methat I should probably be lip syncing.

He’s cruel like that, however there is a certain element of truth in his harsh comment.

I’ve always absolutely loved singing, but sadly singing has not loved me.

I’m musical in that I can play instrument­s and kind of dance, but Ihave no musical talent when it comesto holding a tune. It’s embarrassi­ng.

Ihave even been told not to sing to my kids because as I am usually also the one holding the camera to video the occasion, it’s my voice you can hear the loudest singing out of key. Happy Birthday is ahard song to sing though right?!

I’m going to put all of the negative thoughts to one side though and will be singing loud and proud that night with Adam and someof our listeners!

This is where you come in. Have you always harboured a secret ambition to sing or lip sync (like me) live on stage to an audience of around 15,000 people??

Then you need to start polishing up your Silent Night and head to our website, under thewin section and let us know you’re keen to join The Hits Soul Singers.

Therewill be a couple of practices with the profession­als andour fabulous choir coach Hayley, and then it’s just amatter of dusting off your baubles and getting all figgy pudding with it.

Please don’t let me by the only one signing off key to Snoopy’s Christmas!
