Launch of singer/songwriter Sonya Titus at a Farewell Party for the Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea

A private party was held for the Mayor, Councillor Julie Mills to thank her for her wonderful work as Mayor over the past year. Organised by local resident Annie Redmile and attended by very appreciative residents in the Borough, Julie was presented with a gift and flowers. To mark the occasion and somewhat appropriately, just as we say farewell to Julie, we welcomed Sonya Titus a resident of Kensington who is embarking on her career as a singer/songwriter. Accompanied by her guitar and teacher, she played two of her songs in public for the very first time. It seemed incongrous to the usual events held in the Mayor’s Parlour, but it was a lovely change, and Sonya’s voice was reminiscent of Joan Boaz. Another number was played to illustrate how it would sound with the proper backing, and then to the amusement of all in the room, a well known song was played during which some sponteneous dancing took place. (I don’t think this will happen under the next Mayor).  To complete the soiree, Sonya’s father generously presented the Mayor with a cheque for her chosen charity of the year. We have high hopes for Sonya, so watch this space!
