After Hours Live with Rachel-Yvonne
Rachel-Yvonne, a member of the recent X-Factor group Melody Stone, graced the After Hours Live stage on Friday accompanied by her very able guitarist Phil. She sang a mixture of covers ranging from Whitney Houston to Bob Marley with a bit of Bruno Mars and Rhianna in between. Interlaced between the songs were stories of Rachel's recent X-Factor experiences as well as the journey of her life. Some of the songs were given a special twist where one or two lyrics had been altered to give them the After Hours Live 'twist of faith'. Rachel spoke about her faith in Jesus and how we should be seeking to find our identity in him, not in other things.
A good number of people braved the weather and dodged the fireworks to attend. This After Hours Live was the first time we had teamed-up with another local organisation. This month we joined forces with Wisbech Churches Together in order to raise funds for those caught up in the refugee crisis in Europe. Thanks to the generous giving of the audience we raised a total of £80.60 which will be given to Christian Aid. Thank you to all who gave.
On Friday 4 December we welcome Jon Kendall who will be getting us in the festive mood as well as playing some of his favourite songs. Please visit the After Hours Live website for more information.
