A Personal Message From Rachel !!!!!!!



Hi guys! WOW What a weekend! Just coming down from the biggest buzz since....Nancy! Some of you who were there (at both concerts) will know how electric the crowds were! It just got bigger and better as the show went on.

Naimh and myself had such a funny two days in Belfast - she makes me laugh! And to sing to our home crowd with an 80 piece orcastra - just an amazing feeling. To then go and rub shoulders with the likes of Idina Menzel, Elaine Paige and Ruthie Henshall - just a crazy, whirlwind, experience! They were ALL lovely not to mention extremely talented. And I must say how proud I am of Jessie -- she sang beautifully last night, from her solo. A stunning performance. Will always treasure the memories sitting side stage watching these people sing their hearts out-what a great feeling!

Thanks everyone who came along and enjoyed themselves this weekend. I know I certainly did!

Well now back to my day job......which I'm loving by the way! Have had a wicked time with the new cast and i open in 7 days OMG!!!!!!!! AGHHHHHHH. Very nervous and excited about the whole thing but mostly I just cant wait to start! I'll write soon I hope! Thanks everyone! x x x

I want to thank Rachel so much for her lovely message and at such an incredibly busy time in her career too. As always Rachel focuses on everyone else which is wonderful.
For me two of the most touching images of the weekend were Niamh & Rachel holding hands at the end of ALAHNM and Jessie & Rachel hugging during the Hyde Park performance. Says it all really.

Heya, just wondering if Rachel will be in WWRY in Jan because i have persuaded my mum to take me for my bday, jan the 13th, or around then???

Andy said...

Yes she'll still be performing in January Georgia. She's signed a 1 year contract so you should be fine unless she's ill or on holiday.

Rachel is, as ever, exceeding expectations in being utterly delightful and deserving of the deepest admiration. What a superstar she is!!!
Rachel - you are a total gem!

Well,its not long now at all until the hopes and dreams will be finally fulfilled...I just wonder,after a year of WWRY,where she will go next.The world will be her oyster I think,as Im sure she will be a huge success in this production.Its just so great that Rachel keeps her feet firmly on the ground..like she cant believe any of this is REALLY happening to her..but its fully,fully deserved.Just get out there on opening night and give it your best girl,we are all rooting for you xx
