Grace

Grace Cookey-Gam

Grace studied music at Birmingham University, teacher training at Goldsmiths and took the Diploma in Opera Performance at Birkbeck College whilst working  arts education and as Sing Up! voice leader. After taking an audio drama course in 2011 for what she thought would just be fun, Grace found herself training as an actor at the City Lit, graduating in 2013. Screen credits since then include Tyrant (Fox), Saved (ITV) & Justice League and recent theatre roles include Viv’ in Di & Viv & Rose (Stephen Joseph Theatre/New Vic), ‘Melissa’ in #Hashtag Lightie (Arcola) and 'Warden/ Nurse/ Marta' in Kiss of the Spiderwoman (Menier Chocolate Factory). She still works with singers of all ages when she can and very much enjoys her ‘day job’ teaching singing at Woldingham School. 

 Blue Moon

Blue Moon was composed by Richard Rogers in 1934 and lyrics added by Lorenz Hart. It was written as the title song for the film Manhattan Melodrama, but the film producers were not satisfied with it, even after several attempts to re-draft it, and it was cut from the film. With new words, it was made popular by The Marcels, but has been recorded by dozens of famous singers, including Frank Sinatra, Billy Holiday, Elvis Presley, Bing Crosby and Rod Stewart. The song has been adopted by two football clubs as their anthem, Crewe Alexandra and Manchester City.
