Connie works with Toby Gad

In June, Connie made her second visit of this year to Los Angeles, and stayed for just over a week. She spent much of the time in the recording studio, where she was working with the legendary multi-Grammy award winning song writer/producer Toby Gad.

This picture shows Toby and Connie during a break in recording sessions.

Connie also found time while she was in L.A. to visit Disneyland and other interesting places. At the end of her visit, when Connie was on her way to the airport to catch her flight home to England, we asked her what she thought was the most amazing thing that happened during her stay in America. Without any hesitation, she replied, "Definitely the most amazing thing was working with Toby Gad in the recording studio!"

Sunshine in Wales

After a very hardworking school year, Connie and her family are taking a well-earned break, on a little holiday in Wales. They spent most of today on the beach! Here's Connie, thinking about taking a dip in the ocean.

This summer, the UK has had chilly temperatures and record rainfalls. Wales is a beautiful country, with lovely people. And usually it's wetter than the Amazon rain forest.

But as soon as the Talbot family arrived there, the sun came out, and the temperature rocketed to the high nineties! How did they do that?

Must be some kind of magic! :-)

My Last Day of Primary School

My last day at primary school was a rollercoaster of a day; I was excited, happy and sad all at the same time. For the whole of the school day, I was lucky enough to spend it with all my friends, listening to music, having a party and writing good bye messages on each-others shirts.

It was the best last school day I could ask for. After school, me and the rest of my friends got changed and there was a pink limo waiting to pick us up and take us out for a meal. All our families, friends and teachers were there to take photos and wave us off; even a reporter from a newspaper was there to take photos of us all. 

Once inside the limo, we all had drinks waiting for us and our favourite music playing - a medley of 2012 songs. After having a drive around, we were dropped off at a restaurant, where all our families were now waiting for us.  The meal was a nice way to sit, talk and reminisce about school. 

After getting home, I already started to miss everyone, which is why I was sad for a while, but I’ve already arranged to spend the day with everyone during the summer holiday.

That was my last day, thank you for reading,

A Pleasure and a Privilege

This post is just to introduce me to the readers of this blog.

First of all, to just say I’m very conscious of what a pleasure and a privilege it is for me that I have the chance to be a contributor on the Connie Talbot official blog as an author.

I guess some of you already know who I am… I’m the guy who does a bit of helping out here and there on Connie’s official YouTube channel. You may ask, “What’s it feel like to be doing that job?”

Well, to tell you the truth… it kind of feels like…  having the best job in the world!

I bless the day I first started working with the lovely Talbot family, and their amazingly talented daughter, and so began a journey that has brought me so many joyful moments, and smiles and fun, ever since.

Connie is just a normal kid, but I believe she is also the greatest star. To quote the song – you ain’t seen NOTHING like her yet!

I’ll be posting on here every once in a while, and hopefully it’ll be something that interests you, the readers. So… see you then!

Connie To The Rescue

I thought I'd share a little story about Connie with you.

Recently, Connie was in Los Angeles to record with songwriter/producer Toby Gad.  After a week of long days and hard work in the studio, I thought Connie deserved a little treat.  So, on the last day she was here, I packed up the car with Connie and Sharon and our friends Jordan and Lee-anne Jansen, and we headed to Disneyland.  Everyone had a great time, but there was one little incident that sticks in my mind.  As we were walking through the park, Connie spotted a little boy, maybe 4 or 5 years old, standing in the middle of the crowd of people walking every which direction.  He was just standing there, crying, and no one seemed to pay much attention... well, except Connie.  She quickly crossed over to the little guy, squatted down next to him and asked him what was wrong.  He told her he was lost.  Connie took his hand and brought him over to where the rest of us were standing, then she ran over to a park employee with a walkie-talkie and told him about the lost boy.  Within a couple of minutes, frightened boy and worried family were reunited.  It is just a simple story, but it showed what a kind, caring and compassionate young person Connie Talbot is.

Having gotten to know Connie's parents, Gavin and Sharon, and having already witnessed several random acts of kindness involving strangers, I know where Connie gets those wonderful qualities from.

It is a special treat to be working with Connie.  She has my admiration and respect.

Sail Away - Single - Connie Talbot

Since the karaoke version of Connie's original song SAIL AWAY has been released, we have been amazed to see so many people uploading covers of the song on YouTube! Connie is really delighted by them. She said in her recent interview with Sina, the gigantic media company from China, that it was one of her ambitions to have other people covering her songs.

All the covers are brilliant, each one in its own different way. You all did a great job!

Now the plan is to collect all the covers together on one video page on Connie's website. So if you have made a cover of SAIL AWAY, and you would like it to appear on the website, please place it on the timeline of Connie's Facebook page.

If you haven't yet made a cover, why not give it a try? Now's your chance! :-)

Connie's song SAIL AWAY is available worldwide in vocal or karaoke versions from iTunes, Amazon, or CDBaby.

Connie's Bike Ride

Just the other day, Connie decided to take a break from her busy schedule, and went for a bike ride.

On the way, she suddenly came across some cows. Connie later posted on Twitter: "...was a little scared in case they chased us ! ♥"

But luckily she didn't need to worry - the cows didn't feel like chasing anyone that day.

Twitter user Kent, @kwca6598, replied to Connie: "If you ask them to moo've away ,they may say pull the udder one :-) not too close you may get a pat on the head :-)"

Good jokes, Kent, we haven't "herd" those before! You must have "pasture" exams at the joke school! :-)

The First Home Video

What was the first home video to appear on Connie’s official YouTube channel? 

Don’t worry, this is not a contest, and we’ll give you the answer right away! It was a cover of “When You Believe” by Whitney Houston, uploaded on July 8th, 2011.

Connie has always been a fan of Whitney Houston's music, ever since she was tiny.

The video was actually first recorded back in February 2011, soon after Connie performed the song live for an audience of 30,000 people at the Molineux stadium of the EPL soccer team Wolverhampton Wanderers.

There were a few videos already on the channel, of course, from the old days. But this was the first of the “new era”, so to speak. Why was it chosen? Because of things that were happening at the time, it seemed like a good idea to post a video that contained the words, “There can be miracles, WHEN YOU BELIEVE”. 

And that certainly proved to be true!
