Bubbly was the key word for the night as the guest speaker was organist Jean Martyn who” rocked” the audience in the final of the Britains Got Talent show in 2011. In the eight years since she was a finalist Jean has performed jazz, pop and classical all over the world.

SI Tamworth were delighted to welcome Jean to talk about her career and to perform. Jean brought along her pink sequinned jacket from the final and had everyone enthralled with her playing and her hilarious descriptions of her life in show business. It was a lovely bubbly, happy talk. Jean never stopped smiling
– it is no exaggeration to say that Jean almost bursts with joy when she is performing.

 

 

It was lovely evening and a fitting one to celebrate the President’s birthday.
