A Gift from Rachel

So guys, we've been holding our breath waiting for Rachel to share a special something with us from her gig & it's finally ready.

Rachel wanted us to exclusively share a special video with you all from her St James Concerts: Back From Broadway & well here it is.. with a wee message from the lady herself.

If you hadn't already guessed (or skipped ahead to click play) the song is 'Anyway' by Kerrigan & Lowdermilk. As far as we know the first time Rachel performed it was back in February of 2014, when she performed at the St James Studio for their 'Words & Music' concert & it blew us away completely then & now well over a year on, she found new depth & took it to a whole other level. It's a heart wrenching song, telling a very meaningful story & Rachel tells it with pure heart & soul.
From what we can remember of the gigs, we're pretty sure this video was recorded at the matinee. Before the song Rachel spoke briefly about how 
"We all have a person in our lives, a best friend, someone you love, someone you trust & admire & their talented & beautiful....... ...... you've got them sitting beside you, they're always there, they never let you down & it's a lovely thing & then they're taken from you.. gone.." 
I remember being at the gig when she spoke those words & knowing exactly what song she was going to sing & being completely overcome when the first few notes were played. It's a song that is extremely close to my heart (as for anyone interested who doesn't already know, can read in my blog about the Kerrigan & Lowdermilk gig) & those words before, set the tone. Then  of course Rachel gave such a passionate & committed performance of it & how lucky are we to now have a video of this? I remember I wrote in that blog about how I had to have video of this song, well good things come to those who wait.. we've now got video of Rachel performing 'Anyway' by Kerrigan & Lowdermilk Thank you Rachel for sharing this gift with us.
