|Helena Blackman In Wimbledon|
Chance for a nostalgic music trip
Helena Blackman, the runner-up in the BBC's 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?' will visit Wimbledon on Saturday (February 11) as as part first ever UK solo tour.
Helena's audience will have a nostalgic ride through a wealth of timeless songs. From renditions of Disney Classics; 'When You Wish Upon A Star' (Pinocchio) and 'Part of Your World' (The Little Mermaid) to more modern numbers from Disney’s latest animated fairytale Tangled and Beauty & the Beast.
She first captured the nation's attention and the unfailing support of Andrew Lloyd Webber on 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?'. Since then, she has gone on to headline the acclaimed UK tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific and starred in the West End première of Stephen Sondheim’s Saturday Night.
In 2011, Helena released a debut album 'The Sound of Rodgers & Hammerstein' before going on to perform at the Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall.
She said: "I'm truly delighted to do my first tour as a solo artist and sing songs that I have loved all my life that I know so many other people love, too. I have such fond memories of all of these films, and can’t wait to share those with everyone in the audience."
