On Thursday 15th November 2012, I was invited to attend a day doing a workshop with BBC Radio 1Xtra, this included Q+A sessions, watching a live broadcast and even attending an Alicia Keys gig at the Birmingham Ballroom as part of ‘1Xtra Live’.
Some of the guests who attended the Q+A session were:
Mr Hudson – Singer/Songwriter
Simon Swan – CEO of Circus Records
Chris Slade – Record Plugger of Blue Print Radio
Lady Leshurr – Female MS/Singer and Producer
Jamie Dred – Manager of the Stay Fresh Crew
S-X – Music Producer
C4 – Rapper signed to Boy Better Know
Sandy Cheema – Radio 1/1Xtra
Adam and Lewis – P110
DJ Target – Presenter/Producer
Pam Sheema – Frock on Vintage in Topshop
Simon Jenner – Urban Coffee
Victor Chapartegui – Graffiti 4 Hire
During the live broadcast, Katie and I got the chance to be live on air. We got to chat with the presenters, talk about GirlsLikeGossip and even ask some questions to Charlie Sloth and Adele Roberts. It was an amazing experience and I couldn’t be more grateful!
It can be listened to here for a short space of time (around the 25 minute mark).
The Alicia Keys gig was also amazing, the atmosphere was incredible and her amazing voice exceeded my expectations by far!
