KEEDIE ON THE VOICE

{ NOW OVER TWO AND A HALF MILLION VIEWS }






THE VOICE


The Big Brother originator John de Mol, first created The Voice concept, in collaboration with Dutch singer Roel van Velzen. The show distinguishes itself as different from The X Factor and Idols as The Voice primarily focuses on singing ability and prowess of an artist alone. On 17th September 2010, The TV show The Voice of Holland began to air on RTL 4 with Angela Groothuizen and Roel van Velzen along with Nick and Simon, and Jeroen van der Boom as the mentor-judges of the show. The show proved to be an instant success in the Netherlands.  The format was eventually sold on to a number of countries around the world.

Contestants are aspiring singers drawn from public auditions. The show's format features four stages of competition. The first is the blind auditions, in which the four coaches, all noteworthy recording artists in their own right, listen to the contestants in chairs facing away from the stage so as to avoid seeing them and, therefore, being influenced by their look. If a coach likes what they hear from a contestant, they can press a  big red button which will rotate their chair to signify that they are interested in working with them.

The blind auditions end when each coach has a set number of contestants to work with. Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their singers mentally, musically and in some cases physically, giving advice, and sharing the secrets of their success. The contestants who successfully pass the blind auditions proceed to the battle rounds. It is at this point where the coaches will again put two of their own team members against each other in order for them to perform the very same song in front of a studio audience.

After the vocal face off, the coach must choose only one to advance. If no specific winner can be identified the competition turns to a game of fate via a coin toss. In some versions, there are steals where opposing coaches can steal a contestant who was voted off by their own coach by pressing their button. As in the blind auditions, if more than one coach presses their button, the contestant chooses which coach they want. In some versions, the winners of the battle rounds proceed to the knockout rounds. As in the erlier battle rounds, the coaches, once again, pit two of their own team members to compete against each other.

This time, the contestants choose their own song to perform individually while the other contestant watches and waits. After that, the coach chooses one to advance while the other is sent home. At the end of the knockout rounds, the strongest members of each coach's roster proceed to the live stage shows. In this final performance phase of the competition, the top contestants from each team compete against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience vote to save one contestant on each team, leaving the coach to decide on live television who they want to save and, consequently, who will not move on. In the next round, the public are asked to choose between the two artists that are left on each team. During this particular stage of the competition the coaches also have a vote that weighs equally with the public's vote.

Finally, each coach will have his, or her best contestant left standing to compete in the finals, singing an original song. From these four, one will be named "The Voice" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract. In some versions, all contestants perform each week and only the public's vote determines which contestants advance in the show, a format similar to both Pop Idol and The X Factor. This means that any contestant can be eliminated and no coach is guaranteed a spot in the finals. One of the cornerstones of The Voice format is the social media participation via Twitter and Facebook and the especially designed platform "connect." Users are able to log in via their Facebook account and retrieve background information about the show. The platform also offers the possibility to stream the show online as well as to vote, interact with friends and discuss questions asked by the producers throughout the show.

THE DECISION

Keedie appeared on the BBC Television programme The Voice UK on February 14th 2015, where, although unfortunately none of the judges actually turned around, it was obvious from their expressions that she had undeniably made a resounding impact upon them - with her unique voice, range and impeccable delivery, it would seem, proving to be too much of a dilemma for any of them to place her into any one standalone category. On the positive side, however, as of 28th March 2015, just a short number of weeks after her appearance on The Voice UK, the You Tube video clip of Keedie's performance had already received in excess of 865,000 views and is now, as of 4th February 2018, registering 2,634,533 views.

In contrast to her appearance on the television show The Voice UK, and - along with her wonderful Summer seasons at the Babbacombe Theatre and her forthcoming concerts as part of the three part harmony ensemble Bella Voci - Keedie will also be performing from 23rd May to 1st July 2018 in the absolutely outstanding production of Trioperas: which combines Turandot, Butterfly and Carmen in one spectacular triple bill and also features the beautiful classics that you all know and love, including Nessun Dorma, One Fine Day, Humming Chorus, Habanera and The Toreador Song, all dramatically merged with punk, rap, rock and hip hop. This high adrenaline show at The Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, Holborn, London, creates a dazzling experience, with an incredible display of acrobatics, kung-fu, puppetry, breakdancing, tap and ballet.

THE WOMAN
IN WHITE

The Woman In White opened in London's West End, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics being penned by David Zippel, and book by Charlotte Jones, freely adapted from the novel. Directed by Trevor Nunn, it opened on Wednesday, 15th September 2004 at the Palace Theatre. It gained quite an amount of attention for its set design, which employed the innovative use of projections rather than traditional scenery. Through its first year, the London production earned some criticism. The projections were dizzying and out of focus with the turntable appearing to be incorrectly synchronized.

Also, at the end of 2004 in the show's fourth month, the star Michael Crawford was taken ill, as a result of over sweating in the fat suit he wore to play the grossly obese character Count Fosco. From late December until early February 2005, Steve Varnom, the understudy, played the role. Renowned British singer and stage star Michael Ball then took over the role until late April. He received much praise and adulation for his portrayal of Count Fosco because he had reinvented the role leading to his magnificent interpretation. An interpretation that was employed for all of the show's future replacements.

On 9th July 2005, the final Original London Cast - except for the part of Count Fosco who was now being played by Anthony Andrews -  appeared on stage. It was also the final performance of the first version. The second version opened the following Monday night, with an almost completely new cast, although some of the original ensemble members remained, along with Andrews and Edward Petherbridge, who played Mr. Fairlie. This version previewed through the rest of summer, inviting critics to return in early September 2005 with the arrival of Simon Callow as the fourth Count Fosco.

This time the production was received with more enthusiasm although feelings were still mixed. The relationship between the projections' movements and the revolve also seemed to be smoother and appeared much more focused. The show reportedly received some cutting, but still took roughly as long because of an extended ending which almost filled in the time saved earlier. On 20 January 2006 it was officially announced by the producer that The Woman In White would close on 25th February 2006, where it would just manage to complete it's 500th performance before finally coming to an end.

SYNOPSIS

The short film Meet Again is set in the 1940s and centres around the character of Lily - Evelyn Rei - who embarks upon an emotional journey when the escalating war takes her husband Thomas played by newcomer Chris Todd away from her. Also co starring, and performing, is singer Keedie Green. The Director Rich Silverwood told D&C Film "Meet Again is a story about love and loss, and one that our armed forces and their families of all generations might directly relate to, but this movie will also reach out and touch the rest of us - who those brave, and gallant, soldiers fought so long, and hard, to protect."

He went on to say “It’s also quite a moving story. Evelyn wanted to not only honour the brave men who lost their lives in World War Two, but also the loved ones of those that were left at home. Although this is a only a fictional story, I think that we definitely managed to  capture the essence of how the people of the time may have felt.” 1940s Britain is a fairly ambitious setting for a micro budget short film, especially when funded by just one person; that being writer, producer and star of the film Evelyn Rei. Rich Silverwood went on to explain  how they actually managed to achieve it. “Evelyn did an absolutely fantastic job producing the film and putting together an amazing team of cast and crew. I was so lucky that Evelyn hired me,” he said. Rich also added that “The budget for the movie was extremely small and there were many and varied challenges to overcome but in the end I think we really pulled it off. Everyone involved in the production took the project firmly to their hearts and worked hard everyday to make sure this film was the best it could be.

The film, which was shot over three days earlier in 2014, in the South West, features locations from both Plymouth and Brixham. “We were lucky to have access to two wonderful locations." He continues, "We shot a scene in Emmanuel Church in Plymouth and at Lupton House near Brixham. The staff at both locations were extremely accommodating and helpful. We couldn’t have done it without them.” Lupton House, which has a history with WW2 was used as a base for American forces and provides the back drop for most of the film. Rich said: “Lupton house was a perfect location for the us, It’s a beautiful place. The connection to the 1940s helped the actors get into character and definitely set the mood of the film. I think that this translates extremely well on screen.” Meet Again is also available on You Tube.  

EVELYN REI
.
Evelyn Rei was born in Carshalton, Surrey, London. She is an accomplished actress, and producer, currently living in the county of Devon. Her acting desires were pursued much later than anticipated owing to prior employment choices where she taught fencing and archery to youth groups before enlisting in the British Army in Winchester.

Evelyn first started acting in her twenties after starring in a number of stage productions where she performed as part of the South Devon Players: appearing in such shows as Helen Of Troy, The Court Of King Arthur, Reserrectional Bob, Brixham's Castle and The Adventures Of Robin Hood.

Evelyn has gained an immense amount of respect for her diverse and professional acting ability and is extremely adept at adapting her voice to the role: thereby immersing herself in the moment and adding that extra measure of authenticity to whatever character she chooses to portray.
