WHAT an absolutely WONDERFUL DAY!
It was so great to be part of such a vibrant, uplifting group of Twitter people at The Westin Hotel in Dublin today – all with one goal – to record ‘Winter Song’ for charity.
Arriving to register at 1.00pm today, we slapped a label with our Twitter name onto our festive red or green attire, plonked a Santa hat on our heads and entered a truly, magnificent room in The Westin Hotel.
A welcome cuppa was on hand, and although most people only knew each other through Twitter, everyone was keen to introduce themselves to squeals of joy as they were ‘physically’ recognised.
With over 140 characters singing their hearts out, in aid of the neo-natal unit at The National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, it could only have been fun!
We practiced hard and were rewarded with a break, and another welcome cuppa, along with a slice of one of the fabulous Twitter cakes on display. For those of us with a sweet tooth, we arrived back to our vocals in even better form than before.
Hard to believe that a random Tweet from Brenda Drumm last Saturday, 19 November, to record a Christmas charity single, came to fruition TODAY, Sunday, 27 November 2011.
In little more than 48 hours you should be able to see the result.
Your Christmas shopping list is sorted – you can pick up copies of ‘Winter Song’ for family and friends, while at the same time supporting a worthy cause – surely, you’d agree, the best Christmas present of all.
