    Remember when I sang with Idina Menzel in London……

    Feeling nostalgic today and came across this video. Still gives me chills when the orchestra kicks in behind us :)

    One thing a day…

    This year is the year I knuckle down and push for my dreams. So, I’ve decided each month, I will set myself tasks for 30 days to try and inspire and further my career. January is ‘One song a day’. So I have to record myself singing one song a day. I’m not going to bore everyone by posting all of them, but I may pick my best one each week and release that. We’ll see. But the idea is to help me improve vocally, and to become more creative when I sing. 


    I WILL be more proactive and fierce this year with my career. Nothing is going to be handed to you on a plate. Hard work is the only way forward.

    Today, meeting with a good friend of mine has really opened my eyes. He is like a big ball of energy and inspiration. He made me realise that I focus too much on negativity and what people think of me, when what I should be doing is using that to fuel my passion and ambition. Use the hate to prove them wrong, those who don’t support or seem uninterested, they are not worth my time. I have been so blessed with amazing friends that even when I don’t see them for a year, we still act like we’ve never been apart. They are there unconditionally for me when I need them and vice versa. I have forgotten this in recent months during my depression and anxiety attacks. I have felt alone, isolated and relied on just a few people but I see now how unfair that was to them and me. I can’t expect just one or two people to always be there to pick me up, I have to be stronger and fight harder to get where I want to be.

    So this is the new Shell. Positive, even more ambitious and hard working, thicker skin and ready to make my dreams come true. I can now see that even if I feel alone, I will always have friends around to pick me back up and kick me back onto the rocky road of life!

    “One rule that I have, which I used to say in a far less articulate way, is that things will never inevitably go exactly the way you planned. That’s just life. However, if you work really hard and you are kind and you are generous, you will make things far beyond your original intentions, things that will surpass any dreams you could possibly have. It’s important to remember that. So anything you’re putting out there, regardless if it’s to be an artist or to be a chef, I believe in hard work and kindness. With that, you will go so far.”
    — Darren Criss
