ABOUT ANNA REAY - ANNAGRAMS
I'm a professional singer with years of experience in the entertainment business. I have used my expertise together with skills learned during lockdown, to develop a new way of entertaining, along with an exciting opportunity to personalise songs for exclusive gifts.
From the 23rd March the onset of the pandemic all my gigs were cancelled. All the hard work put into our careers was all just taken away. I’ve performed for as long as I can remember and the thought of not singing sends me to panic stations! However, I took some great advice, to stop thinking about myself and think about what I can give to other people. It was this advice that’s helped create the backbone of my new business 'Annagrams'.
During the lockdown I spent my time performing virtual gigs using innovative methods to include other performers and my band members on live streams. Also, every Thursday, to coincide with the ‘Thank You’ to the NHS I recorded a new song along with footage sent in from people in the community. Collectively they received over 70,000 views. This became the catalyst for my new business.
My passion is music and I know that music brings so much joy to others so its a win win! So as Elton says "My gift is my song and this ones for you"... now lets get it delivered!
A video ‘Annagram’ is a unique and personal way to show someone you care. Check out the links to see how you can use yours. VIDEO-ANNAGRAMS.
It can also be used as a way to celebrate a loved ones life. A thoughtful addition to a service or wake. PRESERVING MEMORIES.
A lot of people have decided to go ahead with their weddings eventhough Covid19 has put so many restrictions in place. No live singing, no readings, limited guests etc. but that doesn't mean they have to be left out completely. A video Annagram is a contemporary way include all of these things on your WEDDING DAY.
