"Sing barefoot for the Queen? Only if Ed Sheeran does'

Sandie Shaw: "Sing barefoot for the Queen? Only if Ed Sheeran does' (Author: Gardener)

Ed SheeranSandie Shaw collects her MBE in music in 2018 - Eddie Mulholland for The Telegraph As she takes her place in the "national treasures" choir alongside Ed Sheeran on Sunday to sing the national anthem in the grand finale of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, odds are there are good that many viewers will immediately look at the feet of pop star Sandie Shaw. She's almost as well known for performing barefoot as she is for her three number one singles, including Britain's first Eurovision winner, Puppet on a String. Does she walk without shoes? "And if it was good enough for The Smiths to walk barefoot with me when they supported me on Top of the Pops, it's certainly good enough for Ed." For someone who hasn't sung in public for almost nine years - Announcing at the end of a tour with Jools Holland in 2013 that she was retiring to concentrate on her work as a psychotherapist - Shaw, 75, did not take a break when the call came up to join the anniversary competition with a high mark . I've loved the Queen since I was a little girl. Shaw was just six years old when she went to her first royal street party in her hometown of Dagenham, Essex. My dad had bought me a tricycle for my birthday and then made this huge crown that went over it on a frame. I left as the Queen's Crown.” Sandie Shaw was a Swinging London sensation in the 1960s - Shutterstock She grew up – as Sandra Goodrich – reading children's books about the royals. I still have her." And after she was catapulted to the top of the charts in 1964 at the age of just 16 after being spotted at a local talent contest by singer Adam Faith, Shaw's enduring status as a Swinging London star meant that She has met Her Majesty's person on numerous occasions. "The Queen is just such a sweetheart," she says. Shaw's East London accent is still unmistakable, despite having lived in 'deepest' Oxfordshire for the past five years, renovating and transforming an old mill house she shares with her third husband, psychotherapist Tony Bedford. If fame and fortune hadn't come to her, Shaw might have been one of the fervent monarchist camped out on the Mall this weekend. Instead, she will sit in a special grandstand alongside other big names representing each decade of the Queen's reign to watch the four-act pageant before taking to the stage to add her voice to the tributes. Shaw already has her outfit ready — a turquoise dress she bought to attend her daughter's beach wedding (she has three children, one with her first husband, fashion designer Jeff Banks, and two with her second, Virgin co-founder Nik Powell). “Then she decided that she would marry alone. As an avid environmentalist, Prince Charles would surely approve of her recycling an outfit. They have met before, including in 2017 when he presented her with an MBE for services to music. "I sang for him once, too, at a ball at Cambridge University when he was a student there." Now, when their paths cross at events, she says, they talk about trees. "We love them both." Shaw meets the Queen at the Royal Academy of Arts in 2012 alongside Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell - Shutterstock As her pop career waned in the 1970s, Shaw tried her hand at acting, playing Ophelia in a production of Hamlet . Then, in 1978, her world collapsed when Banks's business ventures left her penniless: after their split, she lived in a trailer and worked as a waitress. By the mid-1980s, she had bounced back and was working with then-band The Smiths, whose lead singer Morrissey declared himself an "incurable Sandie Shaw fan". She then switched to writing and published an autobiography in 1991 entitled The World At My Feet. Next, she retrained as a psychotherapist, established the Arts Clinic in a building just off London's Harley Street, and worked with entertainers whose careers impacted her mental health. "The creative industry is riddled with mental health issues," she says. “Becoming famous at a young age takes a toll on personal development. It can distort your view of reality and your ideas about yourself. As you get older, you have to adapt these ideas to others.” Women in a male-dominated music industry have a hard time. I now mentor young female singers. I really missed having someone to take care of me." She has spoken out in the past about her reluctant participation in the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest, which she called "crap". "I've never let anyone take advantage of me," she says. She is grateful that she is not a young singer now. “You have to do social media to get ahead. Social media is not part of your creative activity. It doesn't give you room to have your downtimes. No one can be there all the time.” In addition to singing and psychotherapy, she cites “music activism” as the third pillar in her professional life. She served on the board of the Featured Artists Coalition, formed to give musicians more rights to their work, and won her own long-running battle to establish her copyright over her entire back catalogue. She still feels women are getting a bad deal. These women have been around long enough. They served the country. What have men done that women have not done? Shaw in rehearsal before appearing in the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium in 1967 - David Redfern She has no girlhood yet, but someone at the Palace seems to evaluate her. "Whenever the Queen is celebrated in a big way, I'm usually invited. I have to be on a list somewhere.” She recalls attending a reception at Buckingham Palace for people in music around the turn of the millennium. "I saw Cilla come up the stairs all by herself. It was shortly after her husband Bobby died. So, whatever the protocol says, I trotted down and held her hand.” Together they found Joan Armatrading (“really cool”) and Kate Bush (“wandering around excitedly looking at the art”). "And then we stood close together when the Queen came over to talk to us about music. I don't know how she does it.” Her Majesty also gave Shaw a practical lesson. "When introduced to people, she often says, 'What are you doing?' That's such a clever opening line that I've been using since I had to work in a room. Shaw is enthralled by the pageant, which features 6,000 people from all corners of the Commonwealth, plus 200 horses, a dragon puppet the size of a double-decker bus, a Bollywood version of the Queen's Wedding, performers from the Notting Hill Carnival and even a drag queen playing Her Majesty. "The concept of us all gathering together and celebrating diversity is very relevant," she says. “The pageant is an enrichment for us if we open up a bit more as a society. The soft power that these events give us is really important for this country. What amazing creativity. It impresses the rest of the world.” Shaw has been a Buddhist practitioner for 46 years, and it helps her find the process of aging fascinating. No one ever mentioned it to anyone back then.” One thing about getting older, she suggests, is going back to your roots. “Last week I was made a Freewoman of Barking and Dagenham. I couldn't stop crying as I stood up for my award and said, "I'm so glad to be home." At my age you are starting to reconnect with the essence of who you are. You understand how those youthful experiences and values ​​shape you through your life.” Back to her first royal street party in 1953, when she dressed up as the Queen's crown.

Ed Sheeran performs for Queen on the final day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations

Ed SheeranEd Sheeran performed in front of thousands of fans outside Buckingham Palace to mark the end of four days of Platinum Jubilee celebrations in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. The 31-year-old musician, who recently gave birth to his second daughter with wife Cherry Seaborn, was singing his chart-topping song "Perfect" as images of the Queen's late husband, Prince Philip, flashed behind him. After his song, he joined a performance of 'God Save The Queen' in front of the palace at the end of the pageant, where Her Majesty appeared on the balcony after days of missing events due to mobility issues. Sheeran previously performed for the Queen at her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012, when Elizabeth celebrated 60 years on the throne. PRINCE WILLIAM AND KATE MIDDLETON BUSINESS DURING PLATINUM JUBILEE SURPRISE JOURNEY TO WALES It was the first time the Queen has been seen since lighting the Jubilee bonfires on Thursday, as she retired from services at St Paul's Cathedral and missed horse racing first for the third time in history. The Queen was joined on the balcony by Prince Charles and Camilla Parker, the Duchess of Cornwall. Grandson Prince William and wife Kate Middleton joined Her Majesty in addition to their three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Queen Elizabeth II earlier this year became the first British monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee after 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Kingdoms and the Commonwealth. Sunday's pageant capped a four-day weekend of events including the Trooping the Color military parade, the Thanksgiving service, the Epsom Derby and Saturday's Platinum Party at the Palace, which featured Alicia Keys, Hans Zimmer, Queen + Adam Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Duran Duran, Andrea Bocelli, Craig David, George Ezra and Elton John made special appearances. Westminster Abbey's bells rang on Sunday just as they did on Queen Elizabeth's coronation day in 1953 as the two-hour pageant began, rolling through Whitehall to Admiralty Arch and down the Mall to Buckingham Palace. Queen Elizabeth's 18th-century golden state carriage was paraded through the streets of London, displaying a hologram of the young monarch waving. Despite her participation in Thursday's Trooping the Color military parade, which honored her 96th birthday, The Palace issued a press release saying the Queen would not be present for Friday's service at St Paul's Cathedral. "The Queen thoroughly enjoyed today's birthday parade and flypast but had some complaints," the statement said. The Palace added: "The Queen looks forward to attending today's Beacon lighting event at Windsor Castle and would like to thank everyone who made today such a memorable occasion." Following Elizabeth's announcement, a royal expert told Fox News Digital that this is "another sobering reminder that the Queen's record-breaking [70-year] reign is coming to an end".

Ed Sheeran says he's returning to 'dad duties' after anniversary

Ed SheeranEd Sheeran said he's returning to "dad duties" after his "surreal" performance during Sunday night's Platinum Jubilee Pageant. The megastar, who became a father for the second time last month, performed his hit romantic ballad Perfect during the anniversary celebrations, which showed images of the Queen and Prince Philip on giant screens surrounding the stage. “After that I go back [to my father's duties]. I think we're going to have a curry," Ed, 31, said in an interview ahead of his standout performance. This is the event where I picked up a guitar when I saw Eric Clapton and then went to the Diamond Jubilee ten years ago to play it. I still have the [2002 Golden Jubilee Concert] Party at the Palace DVD in my house. I think the last of that kind was the EURO final.” Ed cut an elegant figure as he stepped onto the stage outside Buckingham Palace to perform. It was announced that Ed would be performing during the Platinum Jubilee in late May. He took the stage at the finale of the carnival procession through the streets of London before the national anthem and sang his hit romantic ballad Perfect while footage of the Queen and Philip was distributed on the giant screens surrounding the stage. Philip - the man the Queen described as her "strength and endurance" - was married to the monarch for 73 years and devoted decades of his life to royal duty. He died in April last year during the pandemic aged 99, leaving the Queen in mourning for her lifelong confidante. Ed said he would be heading home to spend some time with his partner Cherry Seaborn and their two children after Ed revealed last month they had secretly welcomed their second child. The Queen appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the final act of her Platinum Jubilee celebration. The 96-year-old monarch appeared for a few minutes and waved to the crowd from the balcony, where she was joined by members of her family including the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The crowd outside the palace sang the national anthem after the Queen - who has had some complaints in recent days - and her family waved from the balcony. Previously, the monarch appeared in the form of a hologram during the Platinum Jubilee Pageant. A 3D image of the Queen, who has been struggling with her mobility in recent months, waves to crowds from the Gold State Coach during London's street competition. The carriage, flanked by Mounted Guardsmen, featured archival footage of the monarch and the special effects created the impression that the Queen was riding through the streets of the British capital. The carriage led the spectacular parade, which was attended by around 10,000 people, including 6,000 performers. Other members of the royal family - including the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - all enjoyed the celebrations from the royal box. A host of notable stars were also part of the event including Sir Cliff Richard, Naomi Campbell, Dame Joan Collins and Kate Moss - who was on board a 90's style bus - as well as classic James Bond cars and Daleks from 'Doctor Who' . In addition, the parade included a Bollywood-inspired section celebrating Britain's South Asia experience, as well as a special appearance by pop star Ed Sheeran.

From living in a tent in Cornwall to recording with Ed Sheeran

The South African musician is on the way to becoming a global superstar, but he always makes time to return to the Cornish surf village he loves (Author: Gardener)

CornwallJeremy Loops - from living in a tent in Cornwall to collaborating with Ed Sheeran The South African musician is on the way to becoming a global superstar, but he always makes time to return to the Cornish surf village he found in his natural habitat Jeremy Loops loving the beachSouth African artist Jeremy Loops is about to hit the big time - his ridiculously catchy new single Better Together, which is receiving massive amounts of airplay, sees him teaming with none other than Ed Sheeran. He has amassed 250 million streams worldwide, sold out Brixton Academy and is poised to further his music career with the release of his third album in July. Not bad for a guy who used to live in a tent in Cornwall. Better Together is a catchy song co-written by Jeremy, Ed and Sheeran's frequent collaborators Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac (the duo who co-wrote the megahit Shape of You). Ed and Jeremy first met a few years ago and hit it off immediately at a private party that followed Sheeran's first stadium show in South Africa. "He said I was a better loop artist than he was," Jeremy said. We spent the night hanging out and talking shop and he suggested we write together.” I spoke to Jeremy, who had zoomed in from a Cape Town beach where he had just been testing his new surfboard on “stupid big waves”. . He said of his burgeoning music career, "Man, to be honest with you, I was a late bloomer. Fast forward two years later and the song is out doing beautiful things and being featured on playlists all over UK radio. It's a ride that Jeremy certainly didn't expect living in Cornwall. He told CornwallLive: "I lived in Polzeath when I was 19. I had some friends who found their way got to work in a surf school in Polzy while I was sailing in the Caribbean and working on yachts in Miami and all sorts of places. She called and said, "You should come and hang out here with us, we live at the caravan park, work in the surf shop and there's parties every night, bonfires on the beach. "I'm not leaving the Caribbean to come to the UK" and they told me it wasn't what I imagined it would be like at home, a rural surf town near Cape Town. As they were having so much fun and it sounded like a riot I came over and bought a tent, went to this campsite and in fact they were all camping or living in trailers.People from all over the world come to this little town of Polzeath as well as a row of coastal villages there and simply have the most riotous summers ever. It was just what I needed." Thanks to his friend's mother, who felt sorry for Jeremy who was crammed into a tiny tent, his fortunes improved. "My girlfriend's mother came down and saw that I was a little two -man tent. She said, 'You can't live in it for the summer!' She took me to a camping shop and bought me an octotel tent, king bed and couch. My tent was basically bigger than my friends caravan. I even had a clothes rail in it - four of me lived there for months and worked in the restaurants and pubs. It's been a really good time." Get the best stories about the things you love most, curated by us and delivered to your inbox every day. Jeremy added, "I ended up having a pretty deep one Affinity for Polzeath so I've been there maybe 5 or 6 times.Since my music career started we've played festivals in Cornwall such as Tunes In The Dunes and Boardmasters where we were supposed to play the main stage just before it all fell apart.When I I go there and I still have friends in Polzy." I was down there long before I made music. I have pictures of me performing on the H Strumming Polzeath's wings on a guitar. I actually came back to Cape Town and went to university and got a degree in economics because I didn't know what to do with my life. I loved music and had a romance with learning guitar, but little did I know that I would end up writing songs, touring and performing. "That's why it was so nice for me to return to Cornwall where I was a young man scared of what I was going to do with my life but having a great time; going back to places like Perranporth and remembering surf trips and how it felt not to be Jeremy Loops, not making music for a living and not having this exciting life that I'm so thankful for now. I was back in Cornwall for 10 days a few months ago visiting a friend. I try to get there almost every year now." Jeremy is a self-taught musician who wrote tunes while working aboard superyachts where he worked his way up from deckhand to yacht captain. Obsessed with putting music into every day ashore and every night squeezing on deck, Jeremy's trusty loop pedal followed him on his tour across the seas. Hence his stage name - Jeremy's real last name is Hewitt. He said: "We would have both started looping at the same time and in a weird way, although he was like a Moloch is I'm something like the Ed Sheeran from South Africa one of the country's biggest artists being big in South Africa and being so big in the UK are two very different things It was interesting meeting Ed for the first time - he was So kind, lovely and humble for someone so tall: Jeremy Loops with friend and co-writer Ed Sheeran on Jeremy's long-awaited third album Heard You Got Love - an A Album with breathtaking anthems, perfect for sunny days, will be released on July 8th. The record also features a very special collaboration with his childhood favorite, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, called This Town, released as a single last year. "Working with Ed was life changing and I think this song I did with him will be a career changing event, but working with Ladysmith Black Mambazo is a dream collaboration for a South African or any other! Is Jeremy worried he might lose his confidence now that he's on the cusp of fame and fortune outside of South Africa? Thankfully, getting into music later in life and having a legitimate purpose and passion for it helps. When you find your gifts in an authentic way, people will follow you and your message without those by-products." While working closely with the water, Jeremy was shocked to see the volume of waste in the industry (especially after working on a Russian oligarch yacht).While his career has been rapidly developing, Jeremy has worked hard to offset all carbon emissions from touring and constantly puts social responsibility at the forefront of his movements.South African star Jeremy Loops couldn't understand why his mates moved to Cornwall - until he joined them. The long-time activist founded The Big Food Drive to deliver food to some of South Africa's poorest communities. Jeremy has carefully integrated those values ​​into every corner of the album. Every song speaks a little that's close to my heart." "Heard You Got Love" allowed Jeremy to explore more technical aspects of the track to explore than before. The record was brought to life in Jeremy's home studio between daily dives in the sea. After working with world-renowned artists such as Simone Felice (The Lumineers), Jake Gosling (Shawn Mendes), Tobias Kuhn (Milky Chance) and Carey Willets (Dermot Kennedy), Jeremy brought a fleet of high-end producers to the album, including Ed Holloway (Lewis Capaldi), Eg White (Adele) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra) It's rumored it won't be long before he's playing the album in Cornwall, if only on the beach with his friends in Polzeath.
